Moderators Statement - Please Read
  • Bughousemaster is permanently banned from this Forum as of this post, and will be denied electronic access as soon as Administrative personnel can be contacted later today…...In the interim, Midnite and I will continue to manually delete his posts, (although he is posting profanity almost as quick as we can delete it)

    We have been very patient with Bughousemaster, and have given him numerous warnings and second chances (and doing this after having to delete over fifty posts because of profanity and personal attacks)….all to no avail, and his profane response to Midnite’s post last night is proof that he is not going to change.

    We sincerely hope you are in agreement with this decision and your comments to this statement are welcome and encouraged. Please post or send a PM.

  • Everyone has been very patient with this young man. We have ignored him, tried to educate him, and, least effective of all, tried to reason with him. He has lied, insulted, made up multiple personalities, and, worse of all, not shown any respect for those that know a lot more than he does. You have done the correct thing.
  • Amen brother.
  • you made the right decision and i am glad he is gone.
  • Thank you.
  • Good riddance. Keep up the good work, Grif and midnite.
  • As everyone can see, Bughousemaster is trying to play games. E-mails and PM's have been sent to the Administrators.
  • Grifter, Midnight: What Bug is doing may be a criminal act and it may very
    well be possible to get the local Houston police and the FBI involved. We
    are dealing with a very sick human being who has a need for attention
    that exceeds anything that I have ever seen. If the situation continues, I'll
    do some additional investigation. Thank you both for your efforts.

    And since we already know his name, it should be easy to get them going on it. Nobody's anonymous on the internet.
  • And to think that when I first joined this board and Bug and I realized that we often play at the same casino, I almost took him up on his offer to meet and play one night. It was funny, though, how his tone changed when I started hedging and making up excuses. All of a sudden, it was "Hey, don't let the board stuff fool you, I'm really not a bad guy. I can act sane. please-please-please ...."
    I almost wish I'd taken him up on it just for the psycological study.
  • Although I rarely comment in your forums, I do read everyone's offerings/opinions quite often. I am also glad that Bug's rantings/ravings have been eliminated from here. A lot of BJ knowledge comes through here and does not need to be diluted by someone who only wants to pick a fight.
    GOOD MOVE!
  • I'll double down on that :wink:
  • I, for one, am glad that I do not have to look at his ridiculous Handle anymore. Could he get more accents and tilda's in that thing?
  • Grifter, Midnight

    You made the right decision. He has problems, but noone here can help him.

  • I would like to echo the sentiments of the many, many posts in support of the actions of our two moderators, Grifter and Midnite.
    They have been extremely patient and I believe were left with no other choice.
    Thank you Grif' and MG.
  • Thanks to everyone for their support. It sure made getting through the last two days easier.

    Midnite and I have deleted all of the kid's profane posts (I think) and I just "unlocked" all of the topics so I think we are back to normal.

    Now let's go back to talking blackjack!
  • Thanks guys. Life is better.

  • It is kind of peacefull. Not a ripple on the 'ol BJ pond right now.
    Thanks for the support and the PM's. As cousin paddy would say "Ah an to be sure, tis' a fine bunch of lads and lasses you are"
  • It's quiet here... almost too quiet. :wink:
