Thread: A Request For Axel

    Axel, I'll back off from the ring of truth statement.
    You can't say either way. That's sums it up for you.

    I asked Dan a month ago to remove me from this forum since I have no practical value here. I don't know why he hasn't.

    Why must people ask to be banned? Cant they just refrain from reading and or posting on a forum? Doesn't Rob's system hinge on self control? I would think anyone using that system would have to have enough self control to not post or read a forum, if that's what they wanted.

    I never understood it until today.

    You make a valid point. Adieu.

    This is a different kind of discipline Axel. It's not the same. I am extremely disciplined with my blackjack play. I have exit triggers and if I hit a trigger, I am up and out. Sometimes that trigger can occur after 2-3 hands. I don't care. Not playing anything but very mild negative counts.

    But Message boards? Admittedly I am a mess. I am addicted to message boards. (no embarrassed emoji, so I will use the sad) I like talking gambling AP with like minded people, even if I disagree on some topics. Most AP's don't have someone at home to talk to. I had a partner/spouse who was my AP partner as well, but he came from the machine play....and not even AP machine play, part of gambling, and only had limited knowledge of any of it. I currently live with my brother, who is a blackjack AP, but he doesn't want to talk 'shop' very often. Once he is home, he is only interested in playing video games and finding some chick to get laid, probably in that order. Anyway.

    Axel, here's another example of the difference in types of discipline. Billryan from Wizards site (he will always be shadroch to me). Isn't he a rather large "person of size", (as my late partner was). While a bit of a douchbag, billryan is pretty disciplined at the blackjack tables and whatever other AP he does, at the limits he plays, yet he appears to have no discipline at the buffet. (sorry shadroch).

    I have meet bill, he was even at my wedding other events, he has been to my house more than once, I have done many things with him. It's funny you mention him, because I was actually just about to call him and see what day for lunch or whatever would be good. He is a great guy, I really like him, hes been good to me and hes done some AP stuff for me. I don't give a shit about his politics like some others do, we don't even really talk about that stuff, and if we do, I don't get all upset based what people believe or think.

    Anyways, Have you ever meet up with and played BJ or anything like that with Bill? If not, how do you know how discipline he is or anything about him? I'm not saying he is or isn't, that's not the point. I'm just wondering.... Do you just assume things that you read on the internet forums are true? Should I assume all your information, ideas, experiences, and thoughts on this stuff is all just mined from the internet?

    No I haven't met him. I do communicate with others that have, although we don't talk about shadrock (billryan) much. I don't think we have mentioned him since the original BJinfo days. That is where I knew shadroch from. He was one of my favorite posters and personalities. I loved all his trip reports and stuff about the small out of the way towns and casinos that he visited. I enjoyed most of his participation. And while just like today, he had some political views and stuff that had him feuding and bickering with certain people. Like you, I don't get into politics much, occasionally but not much, and I never hold someone's politics against them. I would prefer not to even know the politics of members of these forums. That is not why we are here. Those that want to battle each other on the topic of politics all the time, should find a politics type forum. (IMO)

    Sadly I have a little issue with Shadrock. When he moved to Vegas, he showed up at GF, that you and I were on at the time. He was nice as could be to me. I shared some little minor local information that he might not have known about that he could benefit from. We had good conversation and everything was friendly. But he didn't stay at GF long. I guess it wasn't his cup of tea, as it really wasn't most of us, right?

    So a week later he shows up at WoV, and guess what his very first post he is attacking me, who wasn't even a member there for quite a while by that time. Go look up his early posts. And then some time later when Bojack started or was a big part of a conversation about me, Shadroch again jumped in with all sorts of negative comments. So I don't know what his bug with me was. I thought we were on good terms. I don't care though, I still like him, if for no other reason, than he was one of those early members that I learned a lot from, even though he was a small stakes, part-time player at the time.

    Anyway, it was just a joke. What are you getting so defensive about? It almost seems like you are trying to pick a fight. I guess our relationship has deteriorated to the point that we can't even joke around anymore. That is a shame.
