Just supposing an online casino patron turned a regular profit, is this information likely to be shared with other online casino's in order to prevent the patron winning by say, refusing membership or not paying out?
I know it is probably a very naive question but I really would like to know, please.
Yes this has been known to happen, sometimes between casinos that share the same operator and sometimes even between those that use the same software supplier, such as Rival Gaming.
The "official" line on this is that it is for the purposes of identifying fraudsters and those that perform credit card chargebacks after depositing and losing (or even after winning). And that part is certainly true. However I know from personal experience that you can be blocked from claiming bonuses and sometimes from playing at all, if you have been known to win regularly, especially as a result of claiming advantageous bonuses (which casinos that don't know how to do maths like to call "bonus abuse").
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

Cheers, Ed. I am currently a small but steady winner with no ambition to get any bigger. I am now rejecting all bonuses and "rewards" after a small issue which basically said, after taking a A$1.60 "bonus", you need to gamble more to withdraw your winnings .
It seems to me that a level of diversification might be called for. Many thanks for your advice.
I play pretty much the same way now. I decline all bonuses unless I am offered something unbelievably juicy, which is exceedingly rare these days.
The whole chargeback thing is understandable, as I would think the casinos would like to mitigate their risks. The sharing intelligence as to advantage players is dumb though, and frankly reminds me of the crap Vegas casinos pull to kick out players they don't manage to rake over the coals.
