I mean, is it that much of a stretch to imagine the not-to-distant-future where the police are coming to your door to make sure you are not playing online poker?
Agree. This would be a really good, informative article for people who aren't into online poker, or maybe have only heard rumours about it. It would show them on a more personal, relateable level how the current situation is affecting everyone.
Unfortunately, I see the current situation actually getting worse before it (hopefully eventually) gets better. On the downside, this is the US. I'm sure if online poker ever becomes fully legal and regulated that it'll be taxed so heavily that virtually no one will be able to turn much of a profit. Sad to say, but I think we have a long, tough road ahead before widespread online poker comes back to the US in any meaningful form.
