    True one could easily imply that, but the actual words were never said, leaving it up for interpretation. Over the years TDV has been know to envoke passionate replies, sometimes heated replies, due to his opinionated responses.

    X makes a statement, Y replies suggesting, inferring, implying X’s statement is totally false. X believes Y is calling him a liar. Y replies, stating he never called X a liar, never used the word. Y is actually correct, he never used the word, liar, but what does Y’s words suggest. Is X a liar, or was X lying in this instance, or did Y just misinterprete X’s comments, or does Y hold a bias against X?

    No one should or expect you to read every post that end up on this board. After all you do have a life.

    Seriousness? Just built-up, over heated testosterone, that quickly and calmly dissipated, apologizes were made all around and accepted.

    For ease of reference I have taken the liberty of reformatting your post. I am in no way suggesting that
    • you should have done so yourself
    • you need training in effective communications
    • your example is totally false
    • your mother was a hampster
    • your father smelt of elderberries
    • you should go away before I taunt you a second time.
    The key question IMHO is, Is Y trolling?

    At Stage 2 Y could have avoided the troll label by including evidence and/or an argument supporting his/her contention that X's Stage 1 statement is false.

    At Stage 3 X could have supported his/her Stage 1 statement with evidence and/or logic, or rephrased the statement to remove any ambiguity that may have led to Y calling him/her a liar. (IOW attempt to defuse the confrontation.)

    Given Stages 2 and 3 unfolded without my suggested modifications, there is IMHO a litmus test in Stage 4:
    1. Does Y apologize for the implication that X was intentionally (rather than mistakenly) making a false statement in Stage 1, or
    2. Does Y simply deny calling X a liar thereby encouraging a debate over that issue while deflecting attention from the original dispute over the truth/falsehood of X's Stage 1 statement?
    If #2, Y is a troll and further debate of this and probably future issues is a fool's errand. Depending on the nature of Y's Stage 4 post I would end the discussion with something like, "I do not feed trolls."

    Implicit differenciation can be used to solve for y in terms of x. However, I am not going to attempt to show you how, remembering how the Baron ragged on me when I fucked up the infinite series calculation showing the probability of rolling four successive nines. [3][6], [4][5], [5][4], [6][3]

    Really, now -

    EXACTLY - WHAT - was the " THREAT " ?

    YOU - As OTHERS - Have NO clue as to what you speak -

    YOU are ONLY speculating - ASS-U-MEing - what was the message -

    THE message which was conveyed - WAS and IS - THE MESSAGE to TDVegas from me -

    NOTHING MORE - NOTHING LESS !


    Again, it just reinforces the lack of intelligence which prevails among certain members of this forum -

    THEY will interpret actual words to their own benefit and design in order to twist the truth to their own clandestine benefit -


    HarleyHorn and DeMango / House of Orange are prime examples of which I speak !


    NOT ONE false allegation that DeMango / House of Orange and also TDVegas, for that matter, has held water -

    They are ALL false allegations which serve NO other purpose than to cause ME to respond in kind to their constant lies and slanderous remarks -


    I have absolutely NO use for the likes of the above -


    I know what I am and what I am capable of accomplishing and do NOT need - nor desire - to prove anything to anyone !


    It is MOST unfortunate - FOR YOU - that YOU have driven away a multitude of talent that was and is at your disposal on this forum !


    Play your game(s) from behind your keyboards and be safe in mind that Jacob will intervene when reality tries to conflict with your fantasy world !

    I always liked Snakeyes posts. Well the ones pertaining to DI topics. Plus like me he speaks his mind. He did have a great group in NJ. Yes a lot of naysayers here and the discussion of Serious dice topics is almost non existent.
    I share your dismay

    Dave,

    I really think that THIS forum needs a " Jump Start " and to " Re-Invent " itself -

    There is just TOO much " DRAMA " / " BullShit " being spewed back and forth among people who SUPPOSEDLY share the SAME RESULTS -

    And THAT is simply - Beating the Casinos at Their Own Game !

    Granted, there are different persuasions on this board -

    Those who DO believe in the DI concept -

    And those who do NOT -

    Unfortunately, intelligent conversations are few and far between due to the animosity of Both Groups !

    Is there a viable solution to get back on the track that was THIS forum's intent ?

    One can only hope and pray !

    Each and every day, the content / quality of posts here seem to sink lower and lower into that bottomless pit !

    $...eE..$

    Many ingredients make the soup tasty.

    You can only talk about one subject for so long before it gets stale and people lose interest.

    80 degree days, day after day after day get to be boring and blah...there is nothing to look forward to. A good fight every now and then clears the air.....you need to go to the mattresses every now and then and get rid of the bad blood.

    Everything cycles out...hang in there snake.
