Via extempore, news that Richard Brodie, the guy responsible for the red squiggly line that appears under misspellings in MS Word, has been barred from all Harrah's casino properties. Since this includes the Rio, the site of the 2007 World Series of Poker, he won't be playing this year.

Brodie's story of the barring appears on his blog. Note for Trek fans, the "Wil Wheaton" in the comments is indeed li'l Wesley Crusher from ST:tnG, all growed up now.

Well, that's pretty appalling. I agree with him, they need to take a serious look at their business model. Granted, there will always be more people looking to play at your casino (at least in theory, unless there's a wave of bad publicity from something like this, which is certainly possible in the innarwebs age), so kicking the few luckiest to the curb might seem like a good idea. But the message it sends is a really nasty one for a business supposedly in the field not only of hospitality, but of encouraging dreams of winning:

We only like you when you're failing to do what you came here hoping to do.
