Worry not, the Internet Police are itt.
Cos will save us all from doooooooooooooooommmmmm
I spoke to a friend very earlier on msn as I saw a few mentions of this in other threads.
Please correct me if these are inaccurate cliffs or anything needs to be added.
(I also don't really read the sports boards on here as I don't sports bet).
What I understand of the situation...- Solaris asks for staking (admits on his blonde profile he's a bit of a degen)
- No one knows Solaris
- Turns out he's a lot of a degen when people come on and mention bad things he's done in the past
- Several Blondes want to see the good side and still stake him.
If my understanding of that is correct, I think it's a terrible idea to stake the guy.
Someone (Dubai?) said that they'd rather stake a degen than a nit. I respectfully disagree.
There's 2 types of degen. Type 1 is like me and Dubai. Profitable (with varying skill levels obv). Nice guys irl and sometimes borrow money. Always pay it back and have a good reputation within the community.
Then there's your type 2. I don't want to name names because that'll cause the mods unnecessary problems but we've had a few here on blonde. Likeable? Usually very. Skills? Usually very good too. In times of desperation or things going tits up, won't think twice about bending you over. 100%.
No-one knows Solaris. He's jobless atm and people he knows have come on here for the good of others not getting potentially grimmed. What they said in their first post made me think everyone is batshit crazy to still wanna stake the guy. Now I love the blonde spirit in wanting to defend 'our own' and the attitude to say 'Let's give him a shot' is equally admirable too.
However, what these people who are close to Solaris said, puts no doubt in my mind that this person should not be staked. For the good of blonde and the good of himself.To give you the history, we have been ‘mates’ with Ryan (Solaris) for the best part of 7 years now. In the last few years he’s developed a pretty serious gambling addiction. He seems to take a lot of pleasure from thieving and losing money from anyone who is stupid enough to lend it to him. If you don’t lend it to him then he will happily rob you blind. He’s borrowed 600 off us two on holiday and didn’t pay it back because he gambled it. He has stolen from his family quite significantly, has endless debts with the likes of Wonga.com and not last week after losing his job stole a 100 from our housemate. We kicked him out our house and that brings us up to now. You have literally deposited money to someone who has lost everything on more than one occasion and is a gold member at GA
His parents are in charge of his account and have seen the money go in. I suggest you make arrangements to recoup your cash asap and under no circumstances deposit money into this degenerates account. If he's so good at gambling he wouldn’t need your money.
Solaris needs to work on paying back his debts and rebuilding relationships with the people he's hurt, rather than be encouraged by blondes to continue gambling.
I personally think it's inappropriate on several levels but that's just my 2 cents and I know it won't make any difference.
I also realise that Solaris must feel really embarrassed by this. I hope it doesn't embarrass him into shying away from the forum. I do hope it makes him tell us about his story etc and to help him through what is possibly a bad problem.
