Numerical sociology and Aristotle's theory of correspondence.
It all depends on how many humans each of us deals with. The more people we have interacted with, the larger the number of unusually intense haters … and the number of intensely libidinous adulators as well. Neither category is desirable for a Homo sapiens individual. The haters appear to be more undesirable as they make us spent extra energy with our defense system. But the adulators, as far as I am concerned, make me feel uncomfortable — therefore make me spend also extra energy to preserve my freedom of comfort.
Of all individuals a human subject interacts with, 99.7% fall within three standard deviations of agreement-disagreement with said human. One half of the 0.3% of the two extremities is represented by vicious haters; the other half is represented by libidinous adulators. One thousand individuals of interaction provide a small team of three haters/adulators. One million individuals of interaction lead to a small town of 3000. One billion individuals of interaction build a small nation of 3,000,000 — half of them vicious haters, the other half unbearable adulators.
I reckon with a high degree of certainty that my social interaction amounts (in 2010) to over 10 million humans since the inception of my Web site in the year
of grace #1997. Possibly, one can establish a sizable town of 30,000. It's larger than the town I live in: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, United States. Say,
divide my Out-of-Bell-Curve town in two regions: North and South. (The North and the South fought at Gettysburg the bloodiest battle in American history during the Civil War 1863). The North does adulate me, both men and women. They would eat me down to the bone, as the saying goes. The South, all fifteen thousand of them, hates me to the marrow of my bones. The South would not settle for anything less than my physical disappearance. Granted, the expression of hatred toward yours truly has been far, far below that (scary) number! In reality, however, that quantum of hatred is out there: They talk about it publicly and loudly.
Back to our sheep. There will be moments when you'll see threads or posts who express strong negativity regarding Ion Saliu, his theories, his systems, and his software. I am not talking about honestly expressed opinions. You can read them at the old message board. I responded to a majority of them negative opinions or questions. Actually, I benefitted from a majority of them. For starters, there were error reports regarding my software. I fixed the bugs and errors and I made my software better. You can read all that big thread regarding the errors in the famed MDIEditor and Lotto WE (end of the year of grace 2006).
Here and now, I am referring to viciously malicious intent. There are people who think ofanything they can think of to harm me. Perhaps they are competing software developers or vendors. They might as well be casino executives in disguise. Or, they might just be disgruntled users of my software. By disgruntled I mean some honesty. Users who pay for downloading software might have had out-of-this-world expectations. They might have expected my software make them millionaires the very next lotto draws (or very soon). They might as well have mystical expectations: They believe in absolute certainty. I have emphatically stressed that there is no absolute certainty in the Universe (Cosmos). Absolute certainty is absolute absurdity (study the Fundamental Formula of Gambling).
For whatever reason, there are people who think of anything they can think of to harm me. I can tell you from experience, that some haters pay more than twice for membership to download my software. Immediately after their membership was enabled, they would start complaining at PayPal immediately. They ask for a refund without giving any acceptable reason! That way, they even risk their customer reputation — but the possibility of harming me if irresistibly sweet! Of course, they can't do anything to sweeten their venomous glands!
There are rules and laws of conducting business. The legal agreement the customers sign at my Web site is clear even for the hatefully blind! Yes, I know from the IP addresses of people who signed at least twice for membership only for the purpose to try to harm me! I'm sure they lost credit cards and/or PayPal accounts. To no avail! I'm alive and kicking … and accepting paid memberships to download my software…
The venomous glands also try to post as negatively as they possibly can at my Web sites and domains and forums. They try the hardest they can to seed doubt in potential customers. That is, they try to make-believe that my software is the hardest thing to handle in history! My software is impossible… my ideas are insanity… that's what they try to seed in others who deal with me…
Alas! They never do that in other places anymore! They know by now that I'm not afraid of bad publicity. In truth, I can tell you that there is no bad publicity; there is only publicity. One may curse me as badly as one can. I'm not ashamed or afraid. Let people come in contact with my ideas. The Bell-Curve interaction is on my side! So, they don't curse me anymore in other places. They come to my places and curse me. They reckon, the visitors already come to my sites without publicity from my foes.
As soon as they register for paid membership, they send me messages like this: “I need a programming degree to use this software! Very confusing. Oh well, its only $29! No data files and tons of pages to read. Not happy with this choice."
Then, some spill their venom over to my forums! Well, I know how to deal with that. I've had a long experience and I learned from it. So, honest people (99.7% percent of you), please don't be surprised if you notice some threads or posts disappear. It's been the best way to extirpate venomous glands. Although, I swear, I never — ever — sold snake oil!

I said this in my previous post:
“Alas! They never do that in other places anymore! They know by now that I'm not afraid of bad publicity. In truth, I can tell you that there is no bad publicity; there is only publicity. One may curse me as badly as one can. I'm not ashamed or afraid. Let people come in contact with my ideas. The Bell-Curve interaction is on my side! So, they don't curse me anymore in other places.

I posted in several gambling forums, including blackjack. For the most part, I responded to things posted by others. Surprise, surprise! Virtually all my posts would be deleted, sooner rather than later! In the blackjack forums, the problem was card counting. I exposed the lack of mathematics, therefore foundation, of counting cards at blackjack. A few still make money with card counting — but only by selling card counting materials! The authors/vendors don't even play blackjack
for real — counting cards or not!
Blackjack gambling authors — and forum owners — were hotly rattled by my mathematical revelations! So, they deleted my words and banned me. But they tried to keep appearance of honesty: They were willing to have a dialogue with me only on my websites! The following is such an open and direct statement (by the owner of a blackjack forum):
“If any current
members wish to discuss Ion Saliu's systems they are welcome to start a
new thread in this forum. For a glimpse into the mind of the man himself (and
his incredible claims), check out his personal website. It would be more
appropriate to discuss his systems directly with him on his website.
I am more than happy to discuss his theories on this website, but only in an
appropriate and constructive way.
Any posts that do not follow those additional guidelines will be removed. -Sonny-
There was an
incredible response from a very skilled Australian writer. I corresponded with
the witty Aussie for a while in 2008. He even wanted to play high-roller
blackjack in Atlantic City. He wanted me to be his special guest. He was also
supposed to publish a book and tour it in the United States! Neither event came
to fruition! I don't know why.
First, I suspected the Aussie to be a casino agent of some sort! I am the
master of healthy suspicion! Anyway, Katweezel assured me that,
one day, I'll see him for real in an Atlantic City casino. Problem is, as we
all know now (2010), the casinos go through a terrible recession. Most casinos
are bankrupt or under bankruptcy protection.
Katweezel, the skilled Aussie, was suspected to be… Ion Saliu (or Parpaluck) in
several blackjack forums! That was the reason he gave this awesome response. It
is one of the best writing pieces in the 21st century English language… in my
book. The would-be writers in English should study thoroughly the piece
Katweezel, the medieval sorcerer of English words, wrote. It's not because he
speaks positively about… this… Parpaluck… mind you… I swear by the dog in
· “Hi Y'all
I am Katweezel.* I am definitely He, and no-one else!* I am not Ion Saliu,
Parpaluck, Newtron Bomb, ETFan, Don Schlesinger, North Wind, South Wind or
Indigestion, Arnold Schwartsenegger, Baddog or any other silly names someone
made up with fervid imaginations.
The moderators here (.blackjackinfo.com) need not fret about what I say next,
because even they must know there is usually at least two sides to most
I call Ion Saliu a friend and I am proud to know him, at least cyberally. I
know there are many who share my view. Granted, there are many who don't,
including some Head Honchos on other sites. I even incurred the wrath of ET
Khan when I defended Ion over on Arnold Snyder's site. Yep, even Zengrifter has
some history over there, if I am right... Hi, Z!
Few site denizens understand, or want to understand Ion. Overlarge, fragile
egos are easily bruised, especially when under perceived attack. Even if they
fired the first ignorant, ill-informed salvo. As Baddog said, 'Butts are tight,
Here is a different view here, now. Ion Saliu has heart and soul - something
rare in these areas - especially in those high on totems. He has only motives
for good. His expression is always honest and forthright. He is truthful,
dependable, kind and helpful. He has a keen sense of humor. He is motivated by
an altruistic viewpoint.
Ion Saliu maintains all, despite the scars of battles long and hard fought
against all manner of enemies determined to silence him. Why would they silence
him? Because he has great knowledge. But don't take my word for it. Find out
His manner of expression can appear to be sometimes rude, impolite, even
insulting, especially to those who may have become too self-important, with
bloated egos about reputations and who are usually those who shot at him first.
But Ion cares nothing for reputations, titles, positions and so on; and that
gets up dresses...
So, there is my view. I think you could reconsider your view here, because
Parpaluck can certainly liven up sites. If he is handled sensibly by someone
with class and emotional maturity, there will be few headaches, believe me.
Take him out of Voodoo. He deserves the best.
(in deference to a Medieval sorcerer)
Z, your Ion post on streaks had this deleted: "The 20 extra hands are most
mathematically likely allocated as 11 (52%) to the dealer and 9 (48%) to the
player." It goes beneath 'Player...475 winning hands.'
This is a piece of rare gold on a hitherto taboo subject: Blackjack streaks.
Soak it up, guys. K"
Katweezel has survived the post
above. Unfortunately, in other situations, he was banned. I feel sorry because
Head Honchos confused Katweezel for Ion Saliu!

Ion Saliu: Book
of Records in History, Discoveries, Achievements, Truth
In truth, that disgruntled bunch of paid members
represent just a low percentage of the group who badly wants me down. I've
talked about them many times. They are competing authors and developers in the
gambling and lottery fields. The casinos also attack me because my theories and
systems threaten the interests of the gambling business.
This is one of the most common things on the Internet: Piracy. I really am one
of the most favorite sources of piracy. Just about everything I create is
pirated sooner rather than later. I presented only one case of my lottery and
gambling systems being pirated on eBay. There are more of them, as
I have been informed.
First, however, everything I discover or create is virulently attacked. No
rocket science here: Those who viciously attack me are mainly those who belong
in the first paragraph.
There is also a special category of attackers: The future pirates of my
systems, theories, software. The wormy brains do believe that, by attacking me,
I would fold-up shop and run away. That way, they falsely believe, they would
have green light to pirate my creations — and thusly make a buck or two off my
efforts without challenge.
Here is one of the most blatant cases. In May of 2009, I discovered that an
Australian group under the umbrella of genuinewinner.com started
to offer one of my roulette systems … as theirs! And what a price the charged:
2500 dollars! The ring leader appears to be one Stefano Hourmouzis (a.k.a.
Steve or Steven in gambling forums) who first courted me, then attacked me. The
roulette system was heavily advertised on the Internet, plus on YouTube, plus a
television documentary. "Roulette System That Won Millions!"
"We consider which HALF of the wheel the ball landed in!"
The roulette system was based on my discovery of a gambling system based on the
hemispheres or the halves of the roulette wheel. You can read about the piracy
in detail and see also the original YouTube video here:
Curiously, Stefano Hourmouzis started with attempts to …
befriend me! He did post positively about me in public forums. I avoid now
befriending in gambling matters. I tried up until a few years ago. The would-be
“friends” belong in one of two categories.
One, the guys make nice with me, by email only, until they get as much info
from me as possible. I had a case of two self-proclaimed skilled computer
programmers. The guys even sent me links to their websites (who knows if they
really owned those sites?!). Briefly, they got quite a bit gambling info from
me — and then they disappeared!
Two, there are casino moles and agents who also want to get as much as possible
from me. It's a preemptive form of action for them.
It is natural for me now not to be friends or even get too close to the Stefano
Hourmouzis(s) of the world.
Naturally also, I filed complaints with pertinent agencies regarding the
genuinewinner.com piracy. There were two dramatic events following my legal
One, The pirates themselves decided to stop the distribution
of my roulette system (as their piracy). It happened in August of
In October of 2010, I found out that YouTube dropped the Stefano
Hourmouzis - genuinewinner.com video on the grounds of piracy and
copyright infringement. The video only displays this message: ”This video
is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video
has been terminated.”
More details on the following Web pages:
Honestly, I accept some
legitimacy in complaints leveled at yours truly. Most of them complaints are
genuine. Such complaints are related to my lottery software and come from
people with low computer skills. Yes, my lottery software is complex as it is
founded on complex mathematics (theory of probability, especially). The users
in this category are preponderantly late in age, or have low levels of English
skills. Also, there are users who want to win the lottery big, but with the
least effort and in the shortest time. I wish I had their time in playing the
lottery by using my software! How easy is it to write software like mine?!
Granted, I've done it for glory, especially at the subconscious level…
But all these legitimate complaints are rare and far in between compared to the
hatred-fueled complaints against me. The latter bunch is so intensely hateful!
The most pirated man alive (and kicking!)
(Stefano) Hourmouzis has a criminal record!
He served time in jail, in 2000, in Australia. His case
was reported on Australian Broadcasting Corporation, October 25, 2000:
"Steven Hourmouzis, with no prior convictions, had his home raided by
Last week, the 24-year-old pleaded guilty to misleading and deceptive conduct
and to interference with a computer.
For every cyber-crime on the Internet, there are electronic clues and a
cyber-trail. And it takes highly specialised investigators to track them.
Tomorrow a young Melbourne man is due to be sentenced after becoming one of the
first people in the world to plead guilty to attempting to manipulate the stock
market using bogus emails.
24-year-old Steven Hourmouzis was lured by the chance of what he thought would
be quick anonymous profits on the Internet, and according to the Australian
Securities and Investment Commission there is an alarming trend involving young
men in their early 20s engaging in criminal activity on the net.
Despite the exotic vehicle for his crime, in the end, he committed
Now, Stefano Hourmouzis decided to go roulette … kind of Russian roulette for
him! And he had to choose a Ion Saliu gambling system! That's why he had such
high regards for yours truly at one point in time …
The source link:
Australian Broadcasting Corporation, LATELINE - Late night news & current affairs.
You won't believe what means Steven Hourmouzis employed
in courting me! I have obtained a whole lot more information on the Internet.
Also, I came across emails from Stefano Hourmouzis — under the umbrella of a
research company in Australia. I connected the dots today. Like all “good”
criminals, Stefano self-destructs. He leaves trails. Good sleuths today sniff
the trails and catch them bad guys sooner rather than later.
It's incredible that Steven Hourmouzis created a Web site dedicated to a bogus
research company. That company is a self-proclaimed pioneer in some high-brow
research fields. Among the fields, energy development! That's how Stefano
became a criminal in the first place. He sent millions of emails boosting the
prospects of an American energy company. Bogus alright, but those emails netted
Steven Hourmouzis $17,000 in one weekend!
In his own words:
"I established several successful businesses that
funded my energy research (they still continue to do so). However, I still
continued to develop and research gambling systems as it was somewhere between
an obsession and personal interest. By the time I had successfully developed
genuine long-term winning systems, my businesses were doing well enough for me
to not need gambling systems.
I am established with and respected by many energy research groups world-wide
and actively assist in the funding and development of alternative technologies
research. Some projects I fund myself, while others require external sources as
possible projects can cost well over $100m (such as the Searl Disk).
NOTE: If you would like to contribute to any funding or have skills/knowledge
that may assist, please contact me. Any contributions are appreciated."
That NOTE above. I had no knowledge of that note or the Hourmouzis Web site. He
sent me an email. He praised my ideas and works. Then he asked me to cooperate
with that bogus research company. Actually, “they” requested I shared with them
my gambling systems that the public had not found out about. Hourmouzis also
wanted my software and source code!
I take a step back, I take a deep breath and I congratulate myself! A number of
bastards tried hard to manipulate my feelings of a good human. They badly
wanted the source code of my software. I even heard the sentimental threat that
they could die if I didn't send them my software!!! I still made a few
mistakes. I also believe I made a contribution to humanity by making available
the source code of a few of my programs. Included is source code for roulette
Good thing I did NOT reveal the source code of my roulette program that Stefano
Hourmouzis pirated in his "genuinewinner" roulette system.
Boy, oh, boy! He would claim now that it's me who pirated his roulette system!
As is, he has not figured out the source code of my RouletteHemis.exe software. He secretly uses my program. The customers send him
real roulette spins, table by table. Stefano Hourmouzis then runs my software
to find biases at certain roulette tables. That's the reason why his users can
never analyze roulette data on their own and thus discover wheel biases or not.
This guy is absolutely insane. It might be that he suffers from multiple
personality disorder. He could be also another guy in the lottery field. The
same insane behavior. Stefano and his multiple incarnations turned virulently
hateful toward me. They didn't get what they wanted — so, what else could
I believe this is what is a criminal nature. Criminals just can't control
themselves. Stefano Hourmouzis was paroled after three months of prison. He was
supposed to continue his good behavior. Yet, he founded a bogus company. He
sent deceptive emails on behalf of a false company asking for cooperation, even
donations. His “company” promised great yields, as they were partners of Australian
universities and government agencies!
Stefano Hourmouzis took also the immense risk to pirate a roulette system and
charge $2500 for it upfront, plus some $2500 afterwards (after a month of
winnings or so!) Forget about me. Yes, he pirated one modest roulette system of
mine. But everybody can get that roulette strategy for free, by reading and
studying a free webpage at my site! How outrageous is it to charge at least
$2500 for a system that people can get for free, from the legitimate
author of the system?
YouTube notice when trying to access Stefano Hourmouzis – genuinewinner video
touting his piracy of my roulette system (http://youtube.com/watch?v=OC7SazzDF9A):

I guess that must be the irrecoverable nature of criminals. Poor boy! He wants

Roulette System Based on the Wheel Halves (Obliteration of Piracy)
Here is what happened while in this piracy battle. I came
up with great improvements to my roulette system based on the two halves of the
I created special forms that can be printed in color and brought to the roulette
table in any casino.
The most important piece is the roulette wheel layout. I created
first two Excel spreadsheets, one for the single-zero roulette wheels, one for
double-zero tables. I included the 1997-type Excel spreadsheet in the upgraded BrightR.exe integrated roulette software bundle. Also, I exported the
two spreadsheets to two PDF files (included in the package). The users can
print as many copies as they want to. Read comprehensive details here:
Best of luck in the casino!
There are always lessons we learn. I created a simple
text file where I write a few lines after each material I publish at my Web
site (or in other places, such as these new forums). I do not publish much in
other places (forums, for example) anymore. Copyright is the main issue.
I publish an article, like this recent one on the roulette system based on the
halves of the wheel. I write a few lines in that file I namedPiracyDefense.txt:
roulette system based on the halves of the wheel
roulette system half, hemisphere, section, wheel, layout, bias
I google or use other search engines on lines in my PiracyDefense.txtfile. I know, there are no relevant results soon after I publish my material.
But Google will index my materials adequately soon. The search relevancy rises
after Google indexes my pages or publications. Then, after one year or so, the
acts of piracy will pop-up — if piracy of my ideas is committed.
They, especially pirates or would-be pirates, claim that ideas cannot be
copyright-protected. Say that to the law enforcement! As in this Hourmouzis
– genuinewinner case. Goes like, I simply presented an idea (a roulette
system). I used the term hemispheres, whereas “genuine winner”applied the more accurate term of half of the roulette wheel! I also am
the author of a sole roulette software program that tracks in which of the
wheel half the roulette ball landed in. The results of that unique piece of
software may be used freely by any system developer.
Tell that to YouTube. They already categorized the Hourmouzis – genuinewinnervideo as scam and deception. The video was removed. It was the
result of my legal actions. For example, I filed a report with a watchdog that
fights software piracy and other forms of piracy.
Meanwhile, other persons filed all kinds of legal complaints against Hourmouzis
– genuinewinner. The first result was the removal of the Hourmouzis –
genuinewinner videos from YouTube. The final result will be the action of the
law enforcement in the Melbourne, Australia, jurisdiction (where Hourmouzis
resides and where he had already been sentenced in 2000 for email fraud and
I'll be more on top of it by using this PiracyDefense.txt file. I'll
find out myself about acts of piracies against my creations more promptly. Up
until now, I had become aware of such acts of piracies mostly by way of emails
from legally-injured customers.
If something is yours, be merciless in defending what's yours. Don't you ever
bother yourself with those stupid issues of (false) modesty and narcissism! Up
until I published a dedicated Web page (in 2005... yes that recently!) the only
idea was that Zeno's paradoxes had had no solutions. They had
been considered unsolved mysteries. No human could solve a Zenon paradoxor aporia or riddle! I published that Web page — and all of a sudden
people started to tell me that others had solved the Zenon paradoxes before me!
Do the Web log files or archives show such solutions prior to my writing? NOT!
That's why WWW created archives soon after its inception!
You must fight for what belongs to you. It is a virtue. The real sin is to
allow others to rob you. The undeserving lowlifes might shout in public that
you are not modest, or that you are bragging, or that you are narcissistic! One
must make sure that what is his/hers always belongs to him/her. Muhammad Ali,
the greatest champion of them all, was absolutely right. “It ain't bragging,
if you back it up!” Bravo!
The humorous side of it: People tell me that I should be thankful to my
pirates, the likes of Stefano Hourmouzis – genuinewinner! They give the seal of
approval to my ideas! They pirate or plagiarize me because they strongly
believe I am right. Forget about it! What's mine is mine, seal of approval or
not! Only Truth matters and the truth is above anything and anybody. I have
always given credit when credit is due. I've never shied away from giving
recognition, in mathematics at least, to Pascal or de Moivre, who pioneered
formulas that I started with and helped me discover my own formulas,
algorithms, and theories.
Foes see you narcissistic when you hold high the truths they were
incapable to discover. Pirates see you truthful for the narcissism they have
never experienced and they so badly want to taste.
