      Why the "Teeee Heeee Heeee"? Just curious. Seems rather ..... I dunno..... uninformed.

        3 billion is a nice pop. I'd venture to say we'll start seeing a lot more seizures of every kind as agencies struggle with funding.

          But don't forget, this comes only 4 days after Wash DC legalized online gambling WITHIN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA! Any other state or commonwealth it is illegal to participate in or sponsor such activity...

              I feel they're only targetting them for money because they're not getting any. Not because they actually care.
              Been chatting to a girl online. She's funny, sexy and flirty. Now she tells me she is an undercover cop! How cool is that at her age!?

                Congress couldn't figure out a way to tax it so they outlawed it. The companies set up shop oversees and the .gov got mad. Now they're trying this stunt.. it won't fly.

                      I know a few people that play these sites, they're freaking out that they're gonna loose the money that have in their accounts.

                        Its a good thing I wont lose my play chips then! I think Ive spent maybe a total of $100 over the past several years on these sites. I liked to play the small stakes tables but I still managed to lose my shirt. (One thread at a time)

                        As long as they still offer the donkrolls (freerolls) and otherwise free poker Im cool. I dont like losing my real $$$. I have a wife for that.

                          Curiously sites other than Full Tilt; Pokerstars; & Absolute are still up and running.

                          Such as "Doyle's Room".

                            I kind of wonder what the 2011 WSOP will look like if these companies go away.

                              They're only doing it because they aren't getting their slice of the pie in the form of taxes. 5-10 years down the line we will see government run online gambling sites. Kind of like state lottery. It's too much of a potential revenue source.
