And I thought I was being funny - but don't get me started with vaseline - don't wanna go there.

Man what a ride this has been over the last three months or so on the Pirate issue. But I wonder how many of us have ever stopped to think about what Pirate is really like.

Well over the past thirty days or so since associating myself with Pirate and his case, Ive learned a lot about that individual named Pirate as well as his family, a portion of which I feel needs to be imparted to you, my fellow posters.

First off, Pirate does not have a hole in his head as was suggested by the ridiculous emoticon that he showed up with here at the Casinomeister Forums some time ago. Nor is he the swashbuckling comic emoticon character that has replaced the emoticon with a hole in its head. No, Brian is a whole lot more than that.

Brian is a 37 year old husband and father of two young children, who for the most part is very close to being a "lock-in" because of the numerous physical challenges that he faces and readily accepts on a daily basis.

Now, Im not telling you anything that Hampton and Delano casinos havent already gotten back from their Private Investigators who have been exceedingly busy in trying to find anything, anything at all on Pirate and guess what, theyve come up with nothing, zip, zero, nada.

So then in an effort to move without the ball, or so to speak, Hampton Casino contrived the following story:

Quote: Hampton Casino player alleged to have used robot to win over a million dollars could be facing criminal charges in another investigation Sports 911 has learned.

Now theres a very good reason why this information has been floated out there by none other than STING (the owner of SPORTS 911) that Im not at liberty to tell you about now. But youll see it for yourself soon, and when you see it youll know what its all about.

This is the same STING that came on this Casinomeister Forum not very long ago for the explicit purposes of trying to paint a big bright yellow happy face on Ron Lewin of Hampton Casino.

Just a couple other things that I learned about Brian: 1) Hes got one hell of a lot more guts than I have ever dreamed of having by dealing with his life and his numerous physical maladies a day at a time, and 2) there is no larceny in Brians heart and theres never been a robot and Hampton and Delano Casinos as well as Realtime Gaming all know it.

Now you can only imagine the rage that Brian experienced when all of a sudden he had to come face to face with the stark realization that someone had just cleverly managed to steal 1.3 million dollars from him and his wife and his two kids. But to make matters even worse he had no where and I mean no where to turn to. None of us can even imagine the feelings of absolute torment that must have caused him

Cipher, can you say what country and perhaps region/state he lives in? I'm kinda curious. I was trying to think of what basis they could have for prosecuting him, and couldn't think of any until I read Kniepm's post above. That is the only basis I could see for prosecuting him.

Speaking in terms of hypotheticals, there are many reasons why a (for example) US citizen might not want to draw too much attention to a big win; especially a citizen living on some form of income for a disability that can prevent a regular salaried employment.

It's not trying to avoid taxes. It's not trying to avoid prison. It's not dodging the press.

It's avoiding going without income for months and months, and losing all one's computing equipment, all bank account frozen so you can't use your savings, and negative publicity cutting off employment, as all the interested state, federal, international, and interplanetary authorities investigate and take their time coming to the conclusion that you're not guilty of anything.

Many states have no laws explicitly outlawing gambling online for players. They may have laws about having gambling devices in one's home. Is a pc with online casino software a gambling device? It has to be run through court...state by state...to set precedents.

No cirminal history. No intention to commit any crimes. Just the desire to eat month after month is a disincentive.

And then there is this from U.S. District Court Judge STANFORD DUVAL in New Orleans, Louisiana: "Internet Gambling's main nemesis (THE FEDERAL WIRE ACT) applies only to Sports Wagering."

Cipher, what's your take on Evileye? Seems to me there's an agenda there and there is more to that poster than he or she would have us believe.

I think Pirate needs to be careful in his renewed postings here, bearing in mind how misinterpreted his earlier effort at being smart on the harbours was....

I absolutely agree Jet on all counts.
