Default Members who harm the AP community

The way I see it, APs are a small community of people with a common interest. They advocate only legal means of obtaining cash by engaging in games of chance with their adversaries who own and operate casinos around the world. These casinos facilitate tragedies and misfortunes too numerous to mention among their customers. Few who visit these establishments depart unharmed; fewer still, depart enriched. More often than not, those who only intended to spend a modest amount for entertainment wind up spending more than they intended or can afford, urged on by the false impression given by the casino that they have a reasonable chance of winning.

APs meet here, like a community center, to discuss issues, learn from each other, and just chill among like-minded members, but all are aware that their enemies have this place bugged. Therefore, all those who care about the community, take special care not to say anything that might "out" a good game and thereby deprive another AP from making some cash, or "out" an individual, and thereby harm his chances for success in pursuing his AP career.

It seems to me that the Forum moderators should also serve as a kind of security staff, instructed to watch that this principle is not violated. They can do so by warning members to be more careful in what they say, and if ignored repeatedly, they can bar these members from use of the Forum. I mean, what is the sense of even having an AP board, if it tolerates posts that are detrimental to the AP community?

Default enter at your own risk

Why have a mod decide what is secure or not?

However, I do like that they police spam and personal attacks, because I do worry about my little feelings.

Having thought it out some. Perhaps the mods can strike any names.

Always wise Aslan

The moderators do a fantastic job, and it has NOTHING whatever to do with "feelings."

Aslan, I am not sure I know about whom or what are you talking about. In delicate matters like this, it is best if you raise any concerns, make comments/suggestions via PMing the moderators and not through the board.
Also I encourage you and all the members to use the invaluable option of "reporting a post", because you can expect much swifter action since we get the email notification directly to our phone
