Thumbs up The right decision

If you don't want to be an unpaid babysitter, you shouldn't. The hassles involved in moderating and de-spamming a discussion board are ongoing and thankless.

I appreciate the help you have given me by allowing access to so many good posts here.

You done good for a lot of people. Thank you!

Just curious, but who among us would be interested in such a new forum? I don't think any of the existing forums are good options, to be honest. If enough people from here were interested in participating in a new one, it could probably take off.

Though I don't post often, I do check it out 2-3 times a week.

So thank you Ken, and all contributors.

Good luck in your future endeavors.

Ken, thank you for the work that you have put in over the years to maintain this site. I echo the sentiments of other posters that being an admin on any board (much less one with contentious topics) is not exactly easy.

I had also been concerned at the level of information that had been cropping up on a forum that is completely open; one does not even have to login to search. Bjinfo helped me get on my feet in the start, and I have met some pretty fantastic people that I greatly enjoy playing with.

However, in the long run I must sadly agree that the closure is likely +ev (or at least not a further -ev) for many of us. This is not something that I particularly like, but it is reality.

So, go out there, play some cards, win some money, and hopefully the casino ecosystem shall continue to support the fauna that it does.

I would absolutely be interested, and I agree that none of the existing ones seem to fit the bill.

Ken,

I also have been the moderator of a LARGE forum and yes, it's a drain when there other things you'd rather be doing than policing spam-bots.

I hope to one day meet you in person.

Thank you, Ken, for maintaining this extremely useful site. I have learned something new pretty much every time I came here.

Ken, I totally understand your rationality here, but you have created something genuine and real in this website, if you shut it down it will be lost forever. I am sure most if not all of the members here would maybe pay for membership, or perhaps there is another way to generate revenue to pay somebody to run the website for you?

Maybe. You could just recruit more long time members like myself and others to deal with the trolling spamming etc so it won't be a headache to you.

Surely you have pride in what you have created in this website, not everybody gets to do something that really does help the world in a way that you have even if the world your helping is a smaller portion of people, all of those people enjoy your website and what you have created.
