Thanks for your clarification in the original thread, which has been locked.
I understand and appreciate your stated reasons for locking that discussion. My only comment is to say that for some of us, getting involved in the politics and lobbying efforts against unscrupulous gaming enterprises is highly theraputic and an important part of our recovery. We all approach recovery in our own, unique ways. Saying that certain types of anti-gambling involvement is a deflection from self-blame is a bit of an unfair generalization. I think I can understand my own gambling addiction and, at the same time, get involved in community efforts to stop expanded gaming, be it in my real community or online. In any case, I won’t be posting any further news on such topics.
