I just signed up for a membership. I did flinch just a bit giving my personal information though since I remembered that a major source of KT's income is reported to be the selling of mailing lists.

You gave them your real information? I have a spam-collecting email address for just such purposes.

Their other videos aren't working for me, so I fear this isn't going to work either.

i have made a ton of $$$ over the years in that biz as well, its free $$$. yeah i'm the bad guy and the reason people got millions of pieces of junk mail(credit card offers) sorry bout that, not email from 97 to 2004. I got out of the selling side of data then as the market dried up. I buy data from banks etc every week. The reason its so profitable is you pay once and sell it many times as possible, unlike a car lot where they have to buy a car everytime they sell one, in data just copy the file send an email and get a check over and over again.


yes this a good way to harvest data, everyone who will watch is a potential customer for 10 different billard supply stores, cue makers, manufactors. Its gonna be good data to sell again and again, thus it turns into smap, but since its opt-in the Govt cant do a thing about it. If you dont want spam and want to watch set up a onetime email account. there i'm not so bad afterall

Selling data/mailing lists has been around long before the computer ever was thought of. I made and sold silver, 14kt gold, and plated jewelry mail order in the early 1960's. A lot of it was sold from mailing lists that I bought and resold when they got cold. Johnnyt

Must be to many hits at the moment (isn't it what the match was intended for?) I can't imagine how many of them will be at 7 pm.

So there I was sitting at a screen that says something like "This Page will auto-refresh, but if it doesn't, then hit the refresh button" and a short time later I get an error message saying it can not refresh, so I hit the refresh button, and when it came back, I was logged out! So now I'm trying to log back in, but it is now taking twice as long as forever...

Ah the joys of computers! How did we ever get along without them?

Strickland may just not show up for the match (where is the match being played?) because of his antics at the Mosconi cup!

done ethically there is nothing wrong with it, all it is, is providing businesses with information for potential customers, the business has been around before I was born, the credit beauros dont make $$$ when they run your score they make $$$ selling your name to their customers, i spend about $100,000/month with them buying data that fits a criteria that matches my marketing efforts.

if you would have seen the Feed I was getting earlier, it looked like someone was sitting there with a Handheld Webcam, lol, it was out of focus and really up close.

Anytime I've played that it's not open after the break it's alsways been whatever you make the most of. So since they're not playing that it's open after the break then it just makes sense that it's whatever you make the most of. .

Strange rules. We can thank Mike for this one. I like Grady and Mike's commentary though. When they play it straight, they do a good job. Good analysis by both guys. I like the stories too.

Way too many commercials! And they keep repeating the same ones. I thought Dumbo looked real cute, all spiffy and cleaned up for TV. They'd love him in the joint. He'd make lots of friends.

The five grand changes things. Now they've got something to play for. By the way, this is not a friendly match. There was some animosity between these two guys earlier today. A little birdie told me about it.

All in all, not a bad show. So far!

Race to 15.
