My answer is still no, plus "Poker is a game of alert, continuous observation"

In my view irrespective of players ability, molly cuddling them is more detrimental than what is suggested.

Absolutely, Positively NO!!.  Stuart has it exactly right.  I think that sometimes Nick just wants to stir the pot   ;) ;) ;)

Chet,

 I'm trying to start a discussion...on the Discussion Forum. We get very little feed-back on the important issues, so I thought I'd "stir up the pot" with some insignificant
bull crap! 8)

 Always good to get a response from you ;D

Poker is a game of skill.  Reading the board is a skill.  We, as TDs, should have no interest in helping players to hone those skills. 

Nick, you have a point about chip dumping, but I don't feel that is a true problem here.  Either players bet it all and have to flip up their hands, or one player folds to a bet.  And technically any time a player bets and another player folds to that bet it could be chip dumping.
