The Kibs Are Not Alright
And JLall proves once again why some believe he is the only reasonable person on this site.
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Ah yes, after that great song by The Who, "The Self-Kids Are Alright."
Master as a racist term
John, thanks for the response, although it's more responsive to Yu than me, and I'm not going to wade into the discussion on the merits. I just popped in to say I thought it was peculiar that in one breath you lauded the hard-hitting, anything-goes debate style while ...

The Kibs Are Not Alright
OK, there is clearly a lot of misunderstanding here. I'll try to be explicit. What I am describing, a time-delay on BBO, is [b]exactly the same as kibitzing is now[/b], except on a small delay. That means that when the table appears on BBO, you join it ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Why the scare quotes around "professionals"? To the substance, though, you are right that there are different interests in BBO, but I think what you say follows from that is not correct. In particular, I think you are correct here: "Debbie's proposed action against live kibitzing of significant BBO ...
