I never gamble, but I don't have any perlbom with gambling, really. I can see how it could become a perlbom for some, but everything can become a perlbom for some people. Food, sex, drugs, alcohol. Shopping. Anything you can do that's enjoyable, someone's gonna do to excess and suffer ramifications from it.As much as you might think they're stupid, and as much as they might be degenerate gamblers, they're also adults. And it's their choice, in my opinion.

When editing this page, please note a few things:
  +
  +
* The inexperienced may want to check out the "How to help" section on the "community portal" article linked on the sidebar.
  +
* Remember this page is the most public face of the wiki - test edits are best done on a separate page.
  +
* Sections within "<! --" and "-- >" markers (without the spaces) - like this entire section - are hidden comments, and can be separated by several lines. Be sure not to break them.
  +
* We strongly recommend you do not change the <mainpage-leftcolumn-start /> style tags - these keep your page format safe from unexpected breaks - the left column is first, followed by the right column. See http://help.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Main_page_column_tags for more info.
  +
  +
Please note that Wikia protection policy advises against the protection of this page unless it is the active target of vandalism.

* Protecting the main page can do more harm than good, for example by preventing links being added.
