    I've got a couple of friends who are ambulance chasers, and can never get a word in edgewise with them, even when just saying hello or having a captain & coke.

    Who is the Texas AG investigating as fraudulent? Say it ain't so. Nothing fraudulent in accepting money from one's adoring fans, is there?

    Lessons, meet-up fees, privilege to shoot with fees, and of course afterglow.

    joe, anytime you feel inclined to pay me a fee to push the buttons at the bubble craps, I don't want to insult you, Id prefer cash, but money order is ok, make it out to cash though.
    ok, just trying to make some light humor here.

    One of the nice things about anything you read, is you don't have to read it, if it's something that you are not interested in. It's called self censorship!

    One of the worst forms of censorship is limiting opinions and posts that you will never get to hear or read. That forces you to see only part of the story with no other choices.

    There are craps boards that operate that way if they don't like what you posted, they ban you to shut you up, or they delete your post or send you CyberBullying PMs that effectively squash your opinions and threaten to put you in Cyber time-out !

    You can make up your mind as to what you want to read and believe it or not, it's a privilege to do so. There are too many countries that all you can read is the propaganda that they put out ... censorship runs wild in those countries!

    The way that bigots and liars get away with what they do is to try to shut out who they are writing about so they can not respond to their lies. If the shoe was on the other foot how would you feel? Would you run and hide and give up trying to help out other craps players?


    Do you enjoy all of the free information on the different boards that have to do with gambling? How would you feel about only reading fiction? Do you think that it would help you win more money at the craps tables or lose it?

    Here's how Mad Professor's fiction can damage real craps players chances in a Live casino - this post by Mad Professor in his thread At the Tables With the Mad Professor, posted on Sun, Aug 26, 2012 on his ghost-town of a board (Link below) ... Rolling my eyes and SMH :rolleyes: smilies inserted to emphasize fiction:

    Mad Professor implies that as long as you do not hit the back wall and instead aim for "the non-alligatored bottom-lip" that your toss is not randomized and your influence is greater ... the videos posted above proves how this is fiction in that the square dice RE-randomize almost completely when they hit the table EVEN if they DO NOT hit the Backwall-Alligator .... and that is "the simple truth"


    Furthermore, this fiction becomes widespread in Casino crews heads and they apply much more heat to finesse players or players trying to influence the dice than is really necessary .... in other words, Mad Professor's fiction has caused undue heat on the Dice Community

    ... and that is basically all SuperRick is trying to point out in his postings about Mad Professor -- that he writes too much fiction that is harmful in the long run

    I don't know, even when I played craps at silver city and no one there was betting more than 1.00 per number, the pit crew made it clear if the dice don't hit the back wall consistently they would call off the roll and pass the dice if the shooter insisted on weak throws.

    that post is 2.5 years old, I don't think much has changed, at least here on the east coast as I still see the pit crew "remind" the shooter that they must hit the back wall consistently or they call no roll.

    People believe what they read only because they want to believe it.

    Take a room full of religious fanatics and tell them God made the rain today, and they will thank him, since they believe in him.

    The ONLY time I am advised to hit the back wall is when I am rolling a lot of box numbers. Unfortunately for me, this is not very often.

    When in such a groove, let one roll come up short of the wall, and I hear about it immediately.

    The suits act as if player winnings are coming out of their own pockets.

    God made everything, only a fanatic would say otherwise. Creation has to have a Creator. Everything has a first cause.

    I respect your beliefs! But I don't necessarily have the same beliefs, and I don't consider myself a fanatic.

    youre right, never should have said fanatic.

    it was a poor choice of words just trying to make a point that people have strong beliefs.

    What's wrong with being a fanatic. Sometimes it is necessary and it gives you your best chance to win. Like hedging...it has it's place. The strong suit of a fanatic is not cool logic, or reason, or certitude...he relies instead on a blind passion to achieve something. It takes much to kill it. Fanaticism for a right cause is not only a good thing but somewhat necessary to carry you over the top. I wouldn't want to go up against a fanatic. Lasar focus and enthusiasim is a tough match.

    again, I only meant people don't have to be a religious fanatic to believe in god, I was only trying to make a point about people and belief.

    I totally agree, both with Jacob's thinking and your thought on thread life. FWIW there's a similar situation over on Roulette Forum: the "teams" that I have dubbed Mathematicks and Systemicks have adopted a shoot-on-sight rule of engagement which has negatively impacted the signal-to-noise ratio.

    @Jacob, a housekeeping question. Is there a way to ignore a thread (other than by manually skipping and marking it read)? I have read quite enough about The Daft Instructor and his detractors, but remain interested in what the combatants have to say on other topics.

    I kind of admire the combatants approach on this thread, they use a tactic I sometimes employ....When you are in a disagreement with someone, just keep stating your case over and over, LOUDER and LOUDER! It doesn't change the validity, or lack there of, regarding the contention, but it often drowns out the other party's responses! :)

    @The Midnight Skulker Ignoring specific threads isn't an option right now, but is something I'll look into adding. Great idea.

    Common sense says that everyone on this board should be over 21, and we should be at the stage of our life where we can make decisions for yourself. Did you ever hear of self censorship? If I see a post that I don't want to read, I pass over it, there are some posters that bring nothing to a board, so I will not click on any of their post!

    I don't know how this thread now is about religion, the only thing I can say about that is,...Isn't our great fiction writer like a god? No one has ever seen him in over thirty years. His claims to fame is like walking on water! He had an SRR of 28, He had so many large hand making nothing but 4's and 10's that it makes your head spin. He is always making money in the field and lets not for get those fire bets that he hits after a concert lets out.

    I find that very funny as no self-respecting DI would ever play under those conditions,..... DI's avoid full tables like the plague!

    This thread is actually about all of the fiction that is used to promote these on axis craps schools, and how gullible some craps players are when they believe anything that is written on these craps boards and how much harm all of the fiction does to all craps players!

    This thread has 5,402 view so there is plenty of interest it this subject. If I you can't stand to read it don't! Be a big boy or girl and use self censorship it's something that we all should be capable of.

    It's really bad when a DI school has to use fiction to sell what they are pushing and they know for a fact that's it fiction!

    Yes,... when these on-axis DI schools are selling their students on taking a class, I must admit that it's just like religion, where you are believing in something that cannot be proven, and just like what has been going on for thousands a year's with religion, if you don't believe in what they are selling you, now days the will even go so far as killing anybody that is of a different religion. All you have to do is look a what is happening in the Middle East. I can't see how the crimes these people are committing will ever change the way others look at them and their religions.

    With these on-axis DI boards if you don't go along with what they are teaching 100% they kick you off their boards, they can not have anybody that questions what they are teaching. They are nothing but bullies, that use their craps boards to push around their members, and beat them into total submission, where their members will not question anything they write!

    Since Heavy is promoting the fictional writings of Mad Professor on his website, the Attorney General's office should require Heavy to post this Consumer Warning on all of MP's posts:

    Indeed the Hermann Göring approach has proven to be effective, even in today's political arena. Unfortunately, on a forum such as this threads where it is employed have a nasty IMHO habit of developing a life of their own as the two sides both employ the technique. Personally, I am content to make my point and let it go rather than waste my time warning the lemmings about a cliff.
    I do use self censorship; when a thread becomes merely a virtual food fight I quit reading it. The reason I inquired about being able to ignore a thread officially is that if I do not open it or manually mark it as read from the section list it keeps showing up as having unread posts. I could of course ignore the original poster of the thread, but in almost all cases I do not wish to do that because I am interested in that user's posts to other threads. Being able to ignore a thread would be a function I can live without, but it would be a convenience.

    The Midnight Skulker - if you believe this thread is a "virtual food fight" then you sadly have missed the point of the thread

    Is the magazine Consumer Reports just having a food fight with a manufactory when they publish the faults of their washing machine ...

    In what year was this craps shooters bible published? How many copies has it sold?

    What is the gist of its pitch?, i.e., does it profess that on-axis tossing is the stairway to heaven? If so, is there a best way this should be done?

    Sorry, but with respect to the history of DI, some of us know less than nothing.
