Have you looked at the code for the casino game? It's as vile as his screeds against women. I would have rejected it based on that alone, quite apart from the embedded poison easter eggs (look at the code -- you'll see what I mean).

I didn't see any easter eggs, but I didn't look too much anyway. This is priceless though:

} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '4') {
$lvrb4p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '5') {
$lvrb5p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '6') {
$lvrb6p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '7') {
$lvrb7p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '8') {
$lvrb8p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '9') {
$lvrb9p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '10') {
$lvrb10p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '11') {
$lvrb11p = 1;
} elsif ($lvrstart2 eq '12') {
$lvrb12p = 1;

Real clever. Local Variable 12 p??

Notice it's an "eq" not an ==
That stands for the symbol that has been chosen. Perhaps A, B, C, D should have been used instead
to allow sufferance for you OECD disorder?

Also, isn't it obvious by the variable name lvrstart2 that this is a saved value from a previous spin
IE: "the symbol on screen, on reel 2, is symbol 10, thusly, display symbol 10 when we get to the
ascii-art output routine"
Play the game, it works fine. What is your problem?

Your problem is the author, what he believes, what he's said.
You would have never complained about a block of if-thens (common in programming)
in anything a co-patriot of yours has created. You never would have looked.
There's more than one way to do things. But in your mind, YOUR way is the ONLY way
And ANY man that opposes you you get kicked out (ex: Ted Walther in Debian), or
if they aren't part of your organization you get their work deleted
( or you make sure it is not included (now).

That is an interesting link, actually...
Mikhail Kvaratskhelia (aka ‘mikeeeUSA’, aka serveral other aliases) is what constitutional lawyers sometimes call a werewolf – the most unappealing possible victim. He is a creepy, repellent, misogynistic crank, given to uttering threats of violent death against female Linux hackers, and quite possibly clinically insane. [...] To judge by the letter and the reports of his past behavior, he is a vile piece of scum; if he were to threaten harm to Ms. Eicher in my presence, I would cheerfully shoot him. -esr
