In my initial post, I stated that I am new to this forum. I respect you for attempting to monitor a wild and lawless environment and I particularly applaud your sense of fairness--yes, there are unethical players as well as dishonest casinos. I do feel, however (the inevitable 'however'), that you permit a degree of debate in an area that is black-and-white. When a player's deposit is returned, his winnings and bonus confiscated (read 'stolen'), he doesn't merely feel cheated: he has, in fact, been cheated. As I wrote in my pitch-a-bitch, if I can lose but cannot win, I am being cheated. Why the halfway measures?--places who employ such practices are more than rogues: they are outright, arrant, flagrant CHEATS. Why shy away from the precisely accurate label?
