Yeah cause banning online gambling is much more important than fixing real issues that are happening.
How about we just make gambling legal everywhere? Who the fuck cares if they want to gamble away their money? Who are you to tell me that I can't spend my entire paycheck at an online casino? Fuck you. I won't do what you tell me.
It's not like VPN's aren't a thing.
......Who gives a shit?
It's not like you couldn't go on TOR or i2p and gamble your money away to a korean money bot
Maybe ? Just play any MMO out there. They usually throw in a form of gambling in them. :)
And I really don't think that they can prevent in game gambling whatsoever
its about not being able to even play poker online and cash out later if you win, but sports books are legal.... total BS if this law passes people will lose some internet freedom.
"blind bag" products should be classed as gambling, Pokemon cards, Simpsons Lego minifigs, Ban them NOW! ;)
This article doesn't mention the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) of 2006. Here's some fun facts. It was passed just before Congress adjourned, in the middle of the night, attached to a completely unrelated piece of legislation dealing with terrorism at sea ports, called the SAFE Ports Act. The UIGEA made it illegal for banks to process transactions to online gambling and online poker sites. As a result, as time went on, fewer and fewer recreational (bad) poker players deposited online, because of all the hoops you had to go through to deposit. No longer could you use a credit or debit card to deposit money, you had to do things like get prepaid gift cards and shit like that, and go through e-wallets, which turned out to be completely untrustworthy.
As a result of fewer fish depositing, the games became more and more full of sharks (good players), making the online poker games less and less profitable. Finally in April of 2011 if I remember correctly, the sad day known as Black Friday happened to the online poker world. The US DOJ shut down the top three poker sites still serving the US market, including the one I relied on for income. The site I played on bought out a bank in Utah and encoded their transactions as things like golf ball sales. They were shut down for bank fraud, and thus my only source of income went kapoot.
Now with RAWA, the fascists in the government want to make it outright illegal to gamble online. UIGEA didn't do that, it just made it illegal for banks to process the transactions. This would go the further step.
Yay freedom! 'Murrica!
I give a shit.
Well, to you sir, fuck you. :D
OMG HOW FUCKING DARE YOU. FUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU BULLERINOERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
