    I would assume that this affects online poker also. Seems like there has been a large push recently from the poker sites into the German market.

    So this means if someone is silent for awhile gives you the right to kick them down so they will be silent again.

    Can we keep this thread on track please?

    Lojo - if I need to put you on break again, I will - and then that's it - no more Lojo.

    As for Casinomeister, this is an English site that does not target Germans or German speaking people. I have always had a hands off policy for German marketing and plan to keep it this way; this site has always operated within the law. If I have to turn the banners off for our German guests, then I will.

    wow!!

    Lojo

    Whats your agenda? I posted an article, and included a reference to 2 people I seriously respect, Jetset & CM (Both comments intended to be funny, and no offense appears to have been taken by either of them). The article is very relevant to the industry, from a good source, and important to very large number of people who read this forum.

    As for me not responding to a post, well, hey, Its between Christmas & New Year and I have a new son, I don't spend every moment in front of my pc. If you have an issue with that, go see a shrink. Check the times on the posts, it took 12 hours for the first response, and over 30 hours for you to spew your tripe (and I quote "I want c_note to expose himself and his motive or keep his trap shut."), and you expect me to be sitting and waiting joyfully to respond?

    This is now the second time you have "called me out". Are you stalking me or something? I am 60lbs overweight, hairy, have loads of bad habits and don't care what the neighbors think. Not much to look at all. Maybe you should be looking elsewhere for love (and your pickup lines suck).

    And lastly, these 2 quotes of yours :
    She is not the mother of India, and has nothing to do with Afghanistan, she is Pakistani, read all about her here You must register/login in order to see the link.
    If you are going to spew tripe, at least make sure it is factual tripe.

    :notworthy to Jetset & CM 'cos they deserve it

    Lojo, you get one of these :baby:
    Oh, yeah, and you get put on my ignore list, you are not worth the effort anymore

    Touche!

    But back to Germany....

    The European Commission is unlikely to look kindly on this, assuming the German states press ahead with it on January 1. The principle is not too dissimilar to the US and its WTO problem i.e. only support those principles that you like and suit you.

    In this case the motivation seems to be blatant protectionism of state gambling monopolies, and the top European gambling companies have already served notice that they intend to contest any such moves in the courts.

    That, and the liklihood that the EC will haul Germany into the European Court of Justice, is something the Germans must know they are at risk of suffering here.

    Sigh! Actually, I sorta expected this to come from Lojo after his break. What else from one who is so starved for words. However, the respectable Ms Bhutto died for her country and this is something that should not be taken too lightly.

    I did notice that nearly everyday there are quite a large number of members who browse this forum but dont seem to have posted. Lojo, your posts will frighten them so if only you could try to give some suggestions as how to encourage these(newbies?) to post, it may be far more constructive. How about that for a challenge.
