You spoke your piece in the other thread regarding this contest...about how it was a bummer that 'regulars' didn't win the first 2 contests and how it was starting to look like a seedy bar with me acting as a bookie...it's not for you, you're not in...we all heard you.
Why do you feel it necessary to post in this thread? Was there any point, other than to drag the rest of us down and make yourself feel smarter than all the schmucks who are gambling their $100?
I/we respect your decision to sit this one out. It's a lot of money for some people to put up and it's understandable. There are no hard feelings about that. However, those that are in and/or considering it and reading this thread, aren't asking for your opinion. Are they? There's no need at all for you to come piss on the fire by saying 'it's all circumstantial' and ' people are afraid of losing because they didn't win the first time'.
People like games of chance and some people are willing and able to afford to play them. They enjoy the thrill of it. Las Vegas was built on this very concept.
You've already stated that it's not for you. Fine. Feel free to post in other threads about PGMs or about how the forum isn't working properly or which pickup sounds better for death metal/jazz thru a mesa in a mahogany body with a floyd rose and a rosewood neck with .010 gauge strings in July.
I'm sure that the people there on those threads are excited to hear your opinion on those matters because they came and asked for your opinion
. nobody on this thread asked for it.
Somebody on the Parker Forum has a tag that says 'don't speak unless it improves upon the silence'. Good advice.
