Software detection has been possible for years, technically it's a trivial thing to do. What the poker sites found out, however, is that privacy laws around the world -- especially in Europe -- got them in legal hot water and virtually all the sites stopped any scanning or monitoring of player systems years ago.

Thanks for fighting the good fight out there. I wanted to give you a quick response on what I know right now.
We don't allow any kind of remote access software. I don't know exactly what kinds of detection process we have, but I do know that people email us in with problems playing, and once we take the remote access software off their computer, they are able to play. I've even got a little macro button that spits out programmed information to people with these programs.

If this doesn't ring any bells and you're still having trouble, let us know so we can assist you further in troubleshooting exactly what is causing this problem.
This should resolve the issue; however, if you continue to encounter any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us further. )
I hope this answers some questions for you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
