“Pit boss switch” thread closed! WHY???

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29750-i78-k558209…

There is/was a very interesting thread about a casino customer being misled about a comp given at a game table. That thread now seems to have been closed by TA’s automated system as it would be if reported by enough “members.” It will soon totally disappear. I saw nothing that could be deemed inappropriate unless you have some casino marketing interest. We know casino staff do monitor here, but where else could such an action come from? And this is not the first time there have been suspicions of casino interests meddling.

We know Big Brother is watching what we do online, but a more disturbing question is who is “Big Brother” these days?

Any other thoughts?

I agree. Nothing in the thread seemed wrong. Just discussing the issue at hand.

Not that we'll ever find out while it was closed though.

Since you know casino staff monitor this board then it follows that someone from CET probably reported the thread to TA in order for it to dissapear. So many posts bash CET casinos that it would serve them well to try and eliminate as many as possible to reduce the bad light that is often shed on them.

Personally I think casinos have people from their staff pose as forum members like you and me to post positive things from time to time. This may not be ethical but I believe its reality.

Casinos in AC are having a tough enough time with getting visitors to come they dont want potential tourists being scared off or turned off because of negative comments posted here. That is why I believe so many threads have been censored and removed from this forum. TA may say its because they violate their rules but thier rules cater to casinos like CET who advertise here and make TA money.

Sadly, It would be bad business if much of that were not true. And unfortunately, there are also few “real” members around here who seem to enjoy causing trouble, and even some outside members who hate the AC forum for actually discussing such horrors as gambling!

Anyway, We can ask for that thread to be reinstated by pm to TA. I’ve seen many threads restored by reasonable requests. It would be best if the OP asks for his post to be reinstated and requests by anyone else that supports that.

if there were, it surely would have been caught by TA filters.

are you saying there was a disguised expletive in there, one for which people put down one or two leading letters and then use symbols (@&*%#) to express the complete thought? if so, i must've missed that. i'm sure most people did.

whether or not it was cause for shutting down the thread is a judgment call, of course. i see that sort of thing on TA a dozen times a day... or more.
