    so anyway... my point was.... online casinos are not the only gambling establishments are not the only ones we have to worry about leaving players' personal/financial info lying about for any skank to filch.

    Nah, not ballsy...it just sounds like he was a few cards short of a full deck.

    First rule of blackmail: keep it between you and the person you're blackmailing...

    If he was REALLY smart, he would have kept MGM & Harrah's out of the loop altogether and hit the bricks with (a copy) of the list and went to various casinos to try and sell it, trying to leave out where he actually got this list from...I'm sure he could have found a casino or two that were interested.

    Or even better, he could have tried to find an unscrupulous casino host and sold the list to them directly....err, wait, they did that in the TV show "Vegas"...I guess he missed that episode.
