Also worth noting is that meta absorbs such a high proportion of merit compared to the number of people actually posting here. I suspect  the alt board (where most new people post) and even the btc board that have 10x the number of posts actually has far more than 10x more people posting there. You can likely say 100x of times more people posting there. Then seeing the number of merits that meta absorbs is a lot.
10x the posts does not mean 10x the quality. I would rather try to find an exceptional topic in Meta bereft of spam than a decent topic in the Altcoin boards where there are not more than 3 spam posts on any given page.

From what I see, the more general a board is, the heavier spam it generates.

The problem with socialist policies is that they appear to be positive to the individual, who rarely considers the effects beyond that point. Good politics =/= good policies.
At times, it's also a matter of culture that dictates the willingness to benefit the country despite free subsidies.

Quote from: Bitcoin Forum
A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by the starter of a self-moderated topic. There are no rules of self-moderation, so this deletion cannot be appealed. Do not continue posting in this topic if the topic-starter has requested that you leave.

You can create a new topic if you are unsatisfied with this one. If the topic-starter is scamming, post about it in Scam Accusations.

I take that to imply we might be discussing, as an example, the upcoming investigation of Florida voting fraud.

Unlikely, unless Trump is involved in Florida voting fraud. The title says "Trump investigations".

He’s literally sending lawyers to investigate this. That’s the only “Trump investigation” patriots care about.
I guess posting about Trump’s investigation in the Trump Investigation topic isn’t appreciated.
We're talking moderating as in reports, right? Not deleting posts from their self-moderated threads?

I have no stake in either side but I do think that there is a critical difference between deleting posts in a topic that you have self-moderated vs. selectively deleting posts from reports of a board.

You will get served for defaming and causing damage to my company.
I have no idea what your company is and I sincerely doubt that anyone else does, either.

If anything, you are causing more damage to yourself by acting this asinine.

That doesnt sound great to be honest. Its sort of like saying, people will write less negative about their government if the government gives death penalty to the ones who do.
It's a false equivalency although both ideas will end up with the same success unless there are outside factors.

If your idea is to prevent gambling addiction, well then dont make a gambling website in the first place.
This was never the intention of the thread. It's a conceptual one.

All the evidence you have provided is anecdotal and isnt backed by any psychological study.
A number of the psychology research behind the rush of gambling is there but I thought better to simplify it. I can go ahead and add in the "near-miss" concept and all that but it would be unnecessary for the proposition.

In any case, people do get addicted to slots and other games that have higher house edge.
I never said they couldn't.

You find more people addicted to low house edge games because they have a better chance at winning there

if that option wasnt there..Im sure they would have done the same with higher house edge game.

The gambling mentality wont just "go away" saying, "Oh, higher house edge, I shouldnt play here".
Right. But that was never my argument. It's not a repulsion of the gamblers from before they play. It's a lack of hooking in gamblers after they play.

These two have plenty of ideas to be critical over, this is just your personal peev. Also you are a fucking Canadian, how about you stop injecting yourself into all of our internal policies. Oh that's right you live in Canada and it is a frozen wasteland so you have to focus on the US all the time.
1) If those two are entitled to their opinion, then Flying Hellfish too is entitled to his opinion and is authorized to vocalize comments thereof.
2) American politics are not restricted solely to those that reside in the United States (or are citizens outside of the country). There is no reason why Canadians should not discuss American politics as well as their own.

I for one, support the second amendment. (And to create some change in Canadian law to authorize tools for self-defence)

canadian laws are awesome and clear
Yep, and as you're looking at tort law, you would need to prove that there are damages.

If we're talking libel then you should show that Vod has made false statements that directly caused you damages.

But then Vod can always claim that there was qualified privilege or fair comment and dismiss your case, full stop. The latter being, "you strongly believe this person is a scammer" being applied to your asinine behavior.

This is such a trivial matter that at worst, it would cost Vod some gas money.

It seems you have a flawed understanding of the burden of proof.

The risked amount in your feedback to The Pharmacist is 100 BTC. Fact.
You have not shown that you have even traded with The Pharmacist, never mind risked 100 BTC. Fact.
Vod claims that your feedback shows a risked 100 BTC. Fact.
Vod claims that the 100 BTC risk is not substantiated. Fact.
Your lawsuit is based upon this claim:

"Vod is committing libel by claiming that I lied, scammed, and am a criminal."

You have the burden of proof.

You need to substantiate why Vod's claim that you lied is false. You have the burden of proof.

You're using a similar strategy to Christian apologetics in which they shift the burden of proof onto the one rejecting the claim. Roll Eyes

Can't agree OP because there are so many factors and house edge has almost nothing to do with it.
Well, imagine there is high house edge, for example -snip-
Here's the problem. You're creating and assuming individual cases. I am not.

I realize there are a number of factors associated with gambling addiction. However, we are evaluating it from a control group (i.e. irrelevant of outside variables). Suppose our sample size is the entire population of the earth. Then, by analyzing the whole, we absolve any other factors from influencing the results.

It's like stating that all organic experiments are flawed because there are random factors associated with each organism and thus the results are skewed.

Bear in mind, these are also hypothetical ideas based on generalized principles. The average result will reduce overall gambling losses but there will always be variance. This is similar to gambling itself
The thing is, your first example addresses a problem gambler. The behavior would have most likely happened regardless of the house edge (upon a loss) which means there is no significant change to our calculation of total losses.

No. Sob stories don't supplement collateral. Words can be said by anyone.
Am not disputing at all, that's why I asked in Good faith. Keeping in mind the least would care.
Sure, but the blunt truth is that save for a miraculous donation, no one would reasonably send over $1000 to an unknown user that literally just signed up to the forum to request a loan.

Here's the case in your point
Negative - You were scammed or you strongly believe that this person is a scammer.

Everyone with a working brain instantly see for what my negativ rating was.What you guys are doing is to interpret something into it which doesn't exist.
Exactly. Your negative rating is for buying an account. I don't trust that behavior, full stop. You can choose to conflate this with being a scammer, but if this is the case, then clearly the same applies to you, correct?

All your negative feedback implies that those such users are scammers. Pray tell, why are they scammers?

The only reason I didn't see this is because I was not looking for the keyword "criminal" and because I am not omniscient

You must be blind not having seen the massiv amount of being called a scammer and fraud by Lauda and his gang even you participated in these threads.

Never saw you say a single word about it to anyone

But i will tell you something.You are a high professional in creating excuses or discrediting
Again, if you want to show a post that involves someone calling you a scammer (which you should be doing for each person you claim to have done that) then I will acquiesce.
