"tactless weak-end warriors fly in and get bounced."
I've seen some hard-ass cases go through the same routine also.
"certain sites in the last year or so are casting impedimenta for posters. some might prohibit anonymous posts. that should purify the posts...keep them coming from only the same old suspects. that guarantees that arguably the most valuable posts from casino employees, surveillance agents, are eliminated. other sites might delete, 86, prohibit posts of controversial content or those from controversial posters. these web meisters might resort to vague rationales from excising groups of posts/posters. that size 2 hat agenda further guarantees the "purity", "uniformity" of the messages."
There was (and still is, up to a point) a marketing positioning niche for Blackjack Network up for grabs - and that's the No-Man's-Land free-interaction zone for all the scum of the earth! i.e.
Blackjack pros, gambles heavily in debt, counter catchers, secutiry personnel, gaming theoreticians, casino workers, weekend warriors, frequent flyers, conventioneers, working girls, et al.
It would make for fascinating interaction! And it would definitely provide anyone concerned with a considerable, if not great, amount of information, not to mention never-seen-before angles and perspectives. All it would take was some very hard work, agility of mind and a lot of a Cuisine Chef's qualities (as far as mixing the ingredients) on the part of the Moderator. Not unlike the explanation behind the success of various successful (read: uniquely able to create, foment and sustain lively debates) Television panel meisters. BJRNET.com would strive for the cable-TV-like position in BJ websites; all the "network" slots are long gone (ie: popular=bj21.com, theoretical=bjmath.com, the pro's=rge21.com)...
My personal & unsubstanciated take is that Michael Dalton may be very passionate about Blackjack but this here website is definitely low in his life priorities. Unfortunately, pathologically passionate dedication is the prerequisite characteristic for a successful webmaster.
