A Me, You & Them Posting
« on: October 13, 2019, 02:49:58 pm »
You know, I browsed a few other gambling forum message boards early this morning.  Comical, super comical.  The fighting, the insults, the come backs and the few (FEW) intelligent and real members of each that attempt to share and communicate.  Seems like the majority of each are there for drama, insulting, fighting, arguing, and belittling each other.  Why on a gambling board?  The other boards have huge audiences and countless engage like a Civil War all day against each other.

I deduced down why on gambling boards these types continue to exist.  because there is not much resistance or challenge to them on the smaller boards.  They feel as through they have the number spot, limelight, spotlight, etc., etc.  They prop themselves up and feel mighty.  That is the only true reasoning it could be. 

When you explore further into it, you will see those types I mentioned, their postings and threads are next to no value at all, at least in my opinion. 

And then there are the others that split their postings, devotions and time on the boards with a great deal of each.  Something was posted on another board and it is so spot on, so accurate, so brutally honest and pure, I will quote it.

"That is, You can see it in politics and celebrities all the time.
If you cannot produce anything of value on your own because you are not capable of doing it -
your other option is to attack the leader for attention. One way is through praise and another
is through attacks. These people just decide to attack in order to get attention.
A better way to become relevant is to actually post and help others - but when the best you can
pull from your purse is....."
and then those types go on to post something about gambling which
would be along the lines of confusion and obscurity at best.

"You cared enough to post it originally - and you cared enough to reply to it.
And it was you who started it with your nonsense insult towards me.
Strange how that works right? I'm minding my own business, you attack me, I reply -
and now I'm a jerk. It's almost.... typical."

I still say and I have written it many many times.  Which is: You would not go into a Barnes & Noble, pick up a book, browse through it, find conflict, personal notes and passages by the author which you find conflicting to your own beliefs, theories or experiences and then proceed to the counter and chastise, belittle and humiliate the store personnel.  And certainly you would not get the authors contact information or the publishing house info, and go onto a rampage of writing emails and letters to them for the content and the authors beliefs as published.  You would not and do not.  But gambling boards, Oh heck, let us engage and go into drama, arguing and humiliation.  For those that do, your real side is exposed and whatever you claim is usually just the opposite in reality.  Reality is harsh to those and reality is never going away. 
My Blog within BetSelection Board:'s-blog/

Played well over 33,770 shoes of baccarat since I started playing at B&M USA casinos.

"Don't say it's a winning hand until you are getting paid for it".

Played numerous properties in Las Vegas, Reno, Southern California, Atlantic City, Connecticut, South Florida, The South/Southeast as well as most areas of The Midwest.

Baccarat, actually a mixture of Watergate, attacking the Gotti Family and the famous ear biting Tyson fight leading to disqualification and a near riot.  Bac has all that more.

Here is an article some of you my find was written by Dr. Harlow who was my Professor in Finance when I was in is sort of long and deals mostly with stock trading but the
concepts also apply to other forms of gambling and speculation.
