Your post  reminded me of a news report I watched last night.  It seems that the local horse racing track is proposing to put in slot machines.  The problem is, gambling is illegal in PA (unfortunately).  The news reporter interviewed an individual who was against the idea, admitting, that he thought "the kind of people who would be attracted to the slots, were the kind of people who couldn't afford to lose the money".

My point  is, who does this person think he is (and I'm including you in this too Jeff) to tell other people how they should spend their own time and money?!?!

And BTW, how well do YOU understand this ecosystem?
