That is a BS argument. Every piece of information about a sensitive advantage play opportunity that leaks out into the public costs the practitioners of that advantage play method some money, whether it is because a casino boss gets hip to it or because another player learns how to take advantage of it and turns into a competitor. The rest of this thread past the first post seems to be a lot of BS as well. Who is to say who deserves to know how to exploit a given casino weakness? Nobody, really. The people with the knowledge can try to preserve its secrecy by being quiet, or they can discuss it openly. It's really entirely up to them, and questioning their motives is pointless. All that said, the site belongs to Ken Smith, and if he wants to prohibit certain types of discussion, that's his prerogative. What transpires at other sites is irrelevant, and he doesn't really have to justify his reasons to anyone. As it happens, I do not share Ken Smith's ideals when it comes to the spread of information about advantage play, but I can respect his decision to keep some subjects under lock and key. I do not ascribe any particular virtue to being an established advantage player that entitles such a person to continued earnings or the right to expect that certain information about advantage play remain undisclosed. I think it is naive, if not foolish, to try to fight the flow of information in the information age. In short, if you have a question, I might just have an answer, provided I don't suspect you're a casino insider or regard you as a dbag. This is the kind of stuff PMs (or even email) are for, if it can't be discussed openly. Anyhow, good luck at the tables.
