I see these types of comments a lot, and I'm not sure I agree. You and me, and the small percentage of online poker players that make up poker forums
, might have known this. But I'm not so sure the average donator did -- and that's the everyman of online poker sites
. The average player is not involved in these discussions and does not know an online poker community even exists (to a large extent, anyway). And online poker has never sustained headlines -- so he isn't necessarily going to assume it's illegal to run the rooms or process payments.
