So ever since I joined Pregame whenever I give the pros props on a winning day, people accuse me of being some sort of shill. Now some geniuses figured out that since my initials are the same as Vegas Runners that I must be his ghost, and since I went on vacation when Vegas Runner left, thats their proof. 

So in this long thread about DubV being my ghost, I said I don't even know him.  So one of the mods, Brandon Watson, then posted that I redirect my internet traffic via a foreign country and asked me why I do this.  I believe this grossly violates my right to privacy.

Let's not forget that a lot of what we do here is illegal unless your living in Vegas and making your own bets.  We don't need the feds watching us.  When you bet with a local, your breaking the law.  By doing my betting in other countries and keeping my info private, I dont gotta worry about getting busted.  Plus a lot of the big boys like Pinnacle wont even take US people.  So why can a Pregame mod tell the whole forum that I am routing my internet traffic to a foreign country?  Shouldn't that be my business and no one elses?

I explained why I do it and he said whatever, so I had to post via my phone to prove that I am really based out of NYC.  But why should I have to do this?  Shouldn't Pregame be keeping private info private?

Look through my posting history and see that I never once have caused trouble here.  Never once bashed a pro.  The only arguments I get are when I defend pros from silly bashing like complaining a guy up 30 units on the year lost 4 units yesterday or crap like that.  I say you gotta look at the long run and they call me a shill.

It seems like here if you are positive and respect the pros your gonna get called a shill.

Never called you a shill, a ghost or anything man. And your post about me accusing you of those is way off based.

Dude you were replying to a post where I was accused of being a Vegas Runner ghost.  I said I'm a real person in NYC.  Then you asked why I use a Germany proxy.  Saying well I didnt make the accusation, I was just replying to someone else's accusation is pretty weak.

Now how can I say I was in vacation on Germany when he already said it was a proxy?  Then he'll say, well I know its a proxy and not someone on vacation so I'll ban him as a Vegas Runner ghost!  It's a LOSE LOSE situation.

I will let everyone decide for themselves.

I was denying I'm a Vegas Runner ghost and that I live in NYC.  You replied, a full week later, to ask why I use a proxy IP from Germany.  Didn't ask me privately, didn't private message me, didn't email me, you replied in public.  The immediate followup was MADMAN saying "BUSTED RED HANDED"  

So you werent accusing me of anything, but the one guy who keeps sticking up for you and saying your a good mod replied right way to say BUSTED?  Come on man, it doesn't add up.

Honestly dude I think it's even worse that you wont even admit what you did, playing the who me?  what?  excuse.  Obviously your accusing me of something if your big fan replies right away to say "BUSTED RED HANDED"

Not the best use of MOD POWER  IMO

but a bigger question for me is   why nothing from pregame about a mod doing this Do they stand behind the move or not ??

And I proved Im really in NYC and he wont even apologize, acts like it was perfectly ok to tell the whole forum and whoever might find it in a search that I'm routing my internet traffic from Europe, and also acts like he wasnt accusing me of anything when he was replying to an accusation from others to stir up crap.

Any serious bettor knows all serious bettors have to route their traffic elsewhere to bet at the big shops.  No serious bettor should ever ask another serious bettor why they would use a proxy.
