its not just the mod that doesn't want these bets to happen, a significant number of posters that post in it dont want it to happen either.
Too bad. If someone makes a bet that they won't post for a specified amount of time and loses, they should be expected to honor the bet, regardless of what everyone else thinks. If everyone was scared of the consequences should a certain poster lose, they should have tried to talk that poster out of the bet in the first place. Once the bet is made, that's that, regardless of what everyone else thinks.

Grown adults can do wtf they want.

Now, Seth shouldn't be responsible for enforcing it (just as he's not responsible for making a poster pay for a $50 bet). It's ok to update the FAQ to discourage those kinds of bets. But that's the extent of it imo.

WHAT A BADASS

Then offers 20k bet to save face, fails with all non stillborns. Ceire takes bet to bailout other guy, which sucks because I didn't really wanna take him out. But some people need others to fight their battles for them.
he did not like wagering for posting rights as he gains nothing from that, but maybe he was turned on by winning $20k.

why did you refuse the cash bet?


btw f60, nice way to kill the football threads tonight.

See this is funny. I didn't kill the threads. I made two posts about a bet, and that was that. Sethy made his posts, we argued a bit, and then I brought it here.

If you have a problem bring it up with the people who are making the issues.

Can we get Victor's opinion on this?

So much anger for meaningless forum bets.

Basically nothing. I look at it maybe once a month. Other than one LC thread, the rest is meh.
