  • After an in depth search of the archives at GG & VLS, it turns out that I used the phrase "read randomness" before Spike ever mentioned it. I even argued with Arti over it. It took Spike a couple of months, were he first said "read the random." It's all in the archives. I wonder what Spike is trying to accomplish. He has no grounds for his claims.

  • Nope, sorry. I startd using reading random on the old VLS, not GG.
    Its my phrase, you know it, I know it, everybody knows it. You jumped on it as soon as I wrote it, but I'm used to that.

  • Prove it Spike. Where are the archives of the old VLS?  I first said it in January, 09.

  • Why are you doing this? We both know I came up with it,
    you admitted it many times. Now all of a sudden you want
    to rewrite history. I don't get it.

  • I remembered correctly that you said "read the random." I thought you said that before I said reading randomness. I was wrong. The archives clearly show me saying it first. I'll bet Vic has the old VLS archives somewhere. I hope so. There's no dealing with your word. Anyone can see you are nothing but hot air. Keep proving it 72.

    What you'll find is that most of my posts were erased
    from the archives by the mod who banned me, I can't
    remember his name. I had over 4000 posts on VLS
    and he got rid of most of them, I can't even use the
    name Spike there any longer, it was retired.

  • There's not a single mention of "read the random," read randomness, reading randomness, or even a reference to the concept before 2009. Even more important, the discussions defending as well as disagreeing with it don't start until then. Anyone that knows the arguments with Spike back then, the 72%, educated guessing, flat betting only, and all the fights with the mathboyz, know that reading randomness would have started a big debate. It just so happens that it did have a debate that started at the same time back in 2009, that includes the VLS & GG forums simultaneously.  It's impossible to erase posts at GG.

    Spike's "the dog ate my homework" argument does not wash. I'll bet he actually believes he came up with the concept as well as the phrase. He's not even 72% right on this one.

  • Spike is listed as a guest at the VLS forum. Is there any way to find out how many posts he still has there, just as Spike?

  • At VLS, when I do a search for Wendel (@Spike)  I get eleven returns. They all appear after I coined the phrase read randomness in January of the same year. I had no trouble finding the posts with Arti arguing with me over the use and concept. Would Lanky have deleted other people's posts about reading randomness, long before these posts of Spike's, that are still there I might add? Spike's first mention of the concept is in the form of "read the random" where he says that twice. That was almost three months after I brought it up. It is long after Arti and me argued about it. All this parallels similar posts at GG where posts can't be removed. The same timeline. 

     I believe that Spike's calling me a liar is going too far.

    As he's currently muted he won't be calling anyone anything for a while.

    His recidivist actions simply bring his departure closer by the day.
