I agree, nothing new to us - the people that play poker everyday but to the average Joe that doesn't even know the first thing about online poker, it is.
The way I found out about it was that my father came over to me and started saying (everything I already knew) that the regulations are set to to be effective this June, about Congressman Barney Frank, it being a game of skill vs. luck....etc. He read the article. Before reading the article, he had no idea on the legality of it, the laws, etc....and neither does the average person in the U.S.
Now I wonder how an article like this, published in a extremely popular and respected publication like Forbes, will affect the public opinion of online poker? And could it affect the eventual outcome?
