In the main, you would be right, When, but this is not a democratic country ... it's a card site ... a privately owned card site ... and the owners can lay down the rules and enforce them as they see fit. When you bought the software, you bought the right to play with the software, not the right to...

OMG! The Guides are Borg?????

Saw this on another thead:
often times the groupmind will help solve these issues that are on the fence.


Now I know it's true ... all guides are Borg ... they are the collective ... Jonas said it himself! :lol:

Resistance is futile. You WILL be assimilated. :twisted:

No, no, Goosey, you were absolutely on the button. Unfortunately, many people get taken advantage of by clever manipulators online. People can portray themselves in any way they wish online without fear of discovery and along comes someone who is gullible and trusting, and they are the ones to get ...

Never assume, ne, it makes an ass (as in mule ... the correct UK version of ass) of u and me. I'm actually female ... at least I think I must be because I'm 5 months' pregnant! :lol: I also think that a lot of people have taken notice of your threads in all forums so I don't see your reasoning of b...

I already owned/played HW Hearts and saw a conversation in Smoot's about Spades. So I downloaded the demo, was soon hooked and bought it.

Actually, I don't care at all about my rating and I hover around the mid-1400s in Euchre/Hearts, and early-1500s in Spades but you will still never get me to agree with penalisation for not playing.

I so agree with When. I get sick and tired of those platitudes after every hand particularly when the hands are so short. I will comment if someone has a successful loner or march but unless anything fairly remarkable happens, I don't comment. I do, however, always say "tyfg :)" afterwards.

I Have been on hardwood long before Euchre and Hearts was a game, in fact Spades was a beta I don't mean to be picky here but Hearts was first followed by Spades then Euchre (I haven't included Solitaire as it can't be played interactively with other players online) and Hearts was first made public...

"Maradona smokes good stuff" No1 ?!?!?!? you like that?!? In the words of Rhett Butler, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!" Why should my rating be penalised for someone else's nefarious practices? I agree that something should be done about inactive players in the Top 25 in the same way that ...
