We can forget about the spammers and fraudsters. They should be banned no matter what. As for the others, if one cares to look up their posting history, you will normally find that other than having what we call dissenting views, they often hurl verbal abuse at other forum members and this is the reason why they were banned. There are forums where you can write f##### all the way from start to finish in a post and you wont get banned or anything like that. I, for one, would like to be more civilised and act rationally especially in hearing both sides of a story instead of acting as a player's advocate whatever the real issue is. I observe that whenever a member tries to speak his mind in favour of a casino, he/she is verbally abused by player advocates and this should not be tolerated.

I am sure that even if there were members whose views were consistent with Bryan or the moderators but continually abused other members eg namecalling for their dissenting views, they would be banned too.

Imagine you are a 50 year old nurse in Florida, somebody with a paid off car, a nice home with a low-interest
mortgage, and most importantly disposable, discretionary income. Reached by some marketing message,
youve decided to try Internet poker. What do we as an industry say to you?

Your government has said that online poker is illegal.

Three of the biggest, most trusted names on the Internet, Paypal, Yahoo! and Google, wont do business with me. Your bank and Credit Card Company wont let you give me your money.

Let me download some cookies onto your computer, with access to your whole system. Then, provide me with lots of your personal data. Next, because nobody in your daily life will do business with me, I want you to send your money to some guy I know, but you need to first give him your banking info. Hell hold the money for us, and then transfer it into your poker account as needed and you can play at my wonderful poker site.

Dont worry that youve never heard of this guy youre going to send the money to, or that he has no federal deposit insurance.

If you have a problem, youll be fine, really. You can take it up with the folks at the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. Or maybe the government of the Isle of Man, Netherlands Antilles or Gibraltar. Yes, theyre really countries, sort of. You can trust them!

Dont worry about the game being honest, even though people who work for us and have access to our systems might play against you. They wont look at your cards. Well protect you from two or three people talking on the phone while they play against you. You can trust us on that.

--Roy Cooke

Mr. Cooke's talking about poker, but the same thing applies, I think, to casinos (even more so).

The industry's dying for a legitimate, 3rd-party regulator.

But the "Trust us," message isn't going to cut it. Players will trust eCogra (or whoever) when it shows it's trustworthy.

You need to look at this objectively and not emotionally. There is a difference between having a propper constructive debate about issues and just openly flaming and bending facts to suit your own agenda. That is one of the most important issues when it comes to managing a forum such as CM and keeping it the industry leader. Being able to think objectively and maturely and getting rid of flammers that simply start fires that were not burning.

:lolup: How much crack did you smoke before posting this? Caruso was banned because he lacks dicipline in his posting style and language - and he knows this. He had been warned many times and is the only member that had endured two related suspensions. If you can't control yourself - bye. I'm not going to put up with disrespecting this board and its members. "thissucks" board is more his style. I'm sure he has a happy home there :D

Caruso is a true player's advocate, no doubt about that. He has good connections and has helped many players before. It's a pity that once he sees red, he is unstoppable and will clamp down on the casinos and those involved mercilessly which IMO deters him from viewing the issues objectively. Nevertheless, he is a colourful personality and his participation in this Board did give it some spice.

I agree, as someone new here (few months as appose to years) I used to enjoy reading some of his comments and just laughed off his more outrageous ones.

Couldn't help thinking that a lot of the time his posts were jumped on and picked off bit by bit not by their contents but because it was he who had posted JMHO

I've seen far worse and offensing posts by others by the constant use of 'ffs' and 'wtf' to the point that is was becoming boring.
