Ok, maybe I came across as a bit of a cunt and could have worded my op better but alas I cant change that now.

In general, if I know the person or have had dealings with them in the past, I would hold off on collecting from them if they gave me a valid and reasonable excuse. Usually its for small amounts so I can easily survive without it. The problem here is, that I was contacted by a few people stating they were also in the same boat as me.

I knew I would cause a shitstorm for both DD and myself by posting, but it seems a few people knew what was going on but nobody else wanted to start a mud slinging contest.

I have seen what a bad gambling addiction can do to 2 close workmates of mine, and by fuck, I wont stand back and see this happening here any longer.

In summary, I cant wave a magic wand and make everything better, but I hope it is all sorted out soon for all parties.

Just so people are aware, there is more than 1 person owed long term from predictions escrow.

Not at all, you were entitled to phrase it anyway you wanted imo. If anyone is giving you stick they should fuck right off.

This is disgusting. Should be instantly banned. Ive put up what I think about it all in the bbv just now.

Ckids post is by far the best. Such double standards.

Lets not kid ourselves, i'm pretty sure there are some posters members on here who have gambling problems,maybe a section with GA addresses/phone numbers/advice might help someone.
After all this is a community and help should available on here if needed.

Spot on.

I take a very dim view of this personally. In this case the reputation built up on here over time that means he is being afforded greater tolerance is exactly what was abused when he lost / spent / gambled a pool of money he was entrusted to escrow.

- If Danny wasn't well liked, respected and considered a decent bloke he wouldn't have been acceptable as an escrow;
- After he fails to carry out his escrow responsibilities he is afforded more time and patience to make good because he is well liked, respected and considered a decent bloke;

The thing I hate most about the poker community is that so, so many turn out to be unreliable or untrustworthy as the years roll on.

I'd imagine Danny had and has good intentions and didn't intend to get into this situation, but escrow funds should be released instantly or, at worst, within days of being due for payment.

I hope things improve for Danny and he opens a dialogue with those he owes money to. Might take a while to dig himself out of this hole. Hopefully he can.

Good idea...
