Sometimes I wonder if they did that on purpose just to preserve the status quo - sites get to continue operating because the government knew full well when the law got passed that they were outside their jurisdiction anyway but the land based casinos get to think they're keeping their government-guaranteed monopolies and anti-gambling groups get pacified because the government has done something, no matter how meaningless it is in reality.
Anywho, here's hoping the whole thing collapses under the weight of its own hypocrisy and they listen to the Productivity Commission and regulate instead of chasing idiotic prosecutions.
They do this sneaky thing here as well as there, they tag the word illegal to some subject, like aliens or drugs or poker and tarnish clear thinking completely.
Here in the US, we actually benefit from aliens, the drug companies are huge and online poker has not been deemed illegal.
It is sneakiness at it's sleaziest.
Money laundering eh? Easiest way in the whole world to launder money would be to advertise on E-Bay, some legal product and have your cronies use pay pal to move the money. Can't even imagine a way to stop that because you could show enough transactions that are legal to cover
the 1 or 2 that are laundered. Easy peasy.
Makes me want to do something stupid...
