Default jay\'s mentor thread

i figured i would make this thread because personally i don't tend to read long threads that got moved here and i figured some of you might be the same.

anyway, i believe my post in that thread sums up the situation well, and i'd like to get citanul/the red's approval so it can be moved back promptly.

thanks

yeti,

i think my response in that thread sums up my opinion well. summarizing even more:

i think caution is cheap and prudent in almost all things, and that this is something that mat should look at.

Well someone please post in that ATF thread with a srs bsns response, the silence seems to be as bad as anything. Any sort of explanation to subdue the clamoring masses should suffice.

I leave the final say on this matter in the hands of Citanul.

Being perfectly honest, he knows better than I if this thread will lead to unwanted hassles.

yeti/mat,

my biggest concern is honestly that other people, seeing a thread like jay's, will think it's OK to post profit oriented and commercial sites that may or may not be poker related, or great for 2p2ers (individual or the whole group). i'm totally willing to go with yeti's feelings that jay is in no way interested in money out of this whole operation, and i'm inclined to say "put the tread back." i just don't love the idea that we're opening up a whole line of things to case by case analysis that all exist in a grey area, when the simple rule would be to not allow any of them.

since i'm taking yeti's word on jay being a good guy who is totally doing this out of the kindness of his heart, let's either move the thread back or let jay have another one, or whatever he wants done. a note, some tiny part of my opinion here is caused by the fact that i'm about to leave for an airport and i think the worst eventuality is this being unresolved until sunday night or whenever i next see 2p2.

please feel free to post whatever you want in atf or anywhere else.

c

a quick addendum after skimming the thread in atf:

i think that the big staking threads probably have to be thought about, and definitely the linking of www.stakaments.com or whatever has to go.

From the bottom of the thread at the moment, in case anyone was not following anymore:

[ QUOTE ]
[ QUOTE ]

Ill challenge myself to do better in 6 month than any of the students in this!

Anyways to hijack this thread, anyone of the serious people in here interested In trying to set up a forum for private hand discussion, so that we can filter some of the "noise" out.

It is obviously not as good as this but if people are willing to put time into it it will have a way better content to noise ratio than the forums offers atm.

[/ QUOTE ]


I got a couple of PMs after this and a forum has been setup if anybody is interested...

yeti,

does the fact that you are likely correct make you think that it should be allowed to be advertised here for free? (edit: actually, that isn't the question, the question is: do you believe it to be consistent with the rules for it to be allowed to be advertised here for free?)

if so, please await my upcoming real estate investment pitch. it is unlikely that it will actually get off the ground, or last all that long, but i'd like to pitch it to some potential investors anyway, and this seems like a great place to do it.
