Title: Question about a comment I reported
Post by: Don Pedro Dinero on September 30, 2017, 06:29:56 PM
About 10 hours ago, I reported someone because he had just copied paragraphs 2,3 and 4 of a Wikipedia article on a certain subject as if they were his own words. No links, no quotes and no further comments putting his actual thoughts on it.

The comment is still there and I think the report reached the moderator because when I click to report again, I see that I have 100% accuracy reporting in 4 times. Before this morning it was 3 times.

What should I do? Do you think perhaps the moderator was busy and maybe received my report but forgot to delete that comment? Should I report again?

Who posted the comment?  

I have reported quite a few copy paste jobs in the past few days and
I think all of them got shitcanned.  You really ought to name and shame
here, because some of us would like to help out getting rid of these
thieves.  Sometimes mods acknowledge a correctly reported post but
do nothing about it.  I've seen that happen on some of my reports. I
don't think some mods care to take action, and that attitude trickles
down from theymos probably.   That report accuracy thing is a game,
and a silly one at that.  I could care less about my accuracy %.  I report
garbage when I see it.

Edited to add: thank you, reported as well.  These people think this isn't
noticeable, but it is.  Very much so.

In most modern poker games, the first round of betting begins with one or more of the players making some form of a forced bet (the blind or ante). In standard poker, each player bets according to the rank they believe their hand is worth as compared to the other players. The action then proceeds clockwise as each player in turn must either match (or "call") the maximum previous bet, or fold, losing the amount bet so far and all further involvement in the hand. A player who matches a bet may also "raise" (increase) the bet. The betting round ends when all players have either called the last bet or folded. If all but one player folds on any round, the remaining player collects the pot without being required to reveal their hand. If more than one player remains in contention after the final betting round, a showdown takes place where the hands are revealed, and the player with the winning hand takes the pot.

With the exception of initial forced bets, money is only placed into the pot voluntarily by a player who either believes the bet has positive expected value or who is trying to bluff other players for various strategic reasons. Thus, while the outcome of any particular hand significantly involves chance, the long-run expectations of the players are determined by their actions chosen on the basis of probability, psychology, and game theory.

Poker has gained in popularity since the beginning of the twentieth century and has gone from being primarily a recreational activity confined to small groups of enthusiasts to a widely popular activity, both for participants and spectators, including online, with many professional players and multimillion-dollar tournament prizes.

Look at his other posts.  Apparently he likes copy pasting stuff without
giving credit.  I reported another one, but that's all I'm doing.  These nogs
are scumbags.  He'll get a permaban, so just be patient.   

This is what happens when you let jr members into campaigns with no
controls.  They'll just steal shit off the internet and get paid to post it here.
