Heck S.Dice made 13,000 profit today and counting. Share price will go up pretty soon.

How can you tell how much profit S.Dice made?  I mean I guess all transactions are public and you can data mine for transactions to the 1dice addresses and figure it all out, but is this info easily summarized publicly somewhere?

Smiley Bitcoin benefits from success stories

yeah as if gambling is a success for the public good
good for this eric verhoeer guy (if thats his real name) but bad for the rest of us

i play poker regurarily in a local casino and meet a lot of people, listen to their stories - and their stories are basically the same:
they start playing roulette or some other -EV game, win, get the roulette virus, bets increase, they lose

in the long run gambling destroys much more than it creates and sdice does not even create jobs or pay taxes!

You're in the wrong place, pinko.

Is that your only argument?
Maybe i'm in the wrong place but at least i'm not wrong!

You're flat out wrong to imagine any business is to be held at gunpoint by "the people" to justify itself through "paying taxes" or "creating jobs". What, you figure you're doing it a favor by its existence or something?

That's such an ivory tower argument to justify greedy and anti social behaviour.

Businesses are not abstract entities! They do affect people and if they do in a negative way then they are at least amoral.

The next time a gambling or drug addict robs someone, maybe the victim will be you. Is this the world "non-pinkos" like you want to live in?

People are greedy by nature - it's how a free market works. If one business is charging an insane price for a product or service, another will spring up and offer it for less. And of COURSE businesses are amoral. They exist to make money, nothing more or less. A business would build a children's day care center out of asbestos and cyanide if they thought they could get away with it and save two cents in production. People are willing to gamble, so businesses provide what the people want - at a price, of course. Finally, gambling addicts aren't known for robbing people. Defaulting on loans, perhaps, but not out and out theft.
