Here's a hypothetical question for the FBI (who state on their webpage that gambling online is illegal):

Let's say I go over to my neighbor's house for a visit and he's at his computer spinning those Thunderstruck reels like mad. I watch as he makes a deposit, and he plays some VP and maybe more slots. I go home and call the FBI and report this horrible crime I witnessed.

What is the FBI going to do? If they pursue it and actually arrest the poor gambling dude and confiscate his computer, what are they arresting him for?? gambling on the internet?

Show me the freakin' law! Someone, the FBI, the DoJ, should have some sort of vague idea where that pesky little law is written. They keep saying that gambling online is illegal -- ok... fine... what law has my hypothetical neighbor broken?

(Sorry... I've gone so long without one of my rants, it just sort of popped out. :oops: )

That is a good question and we will be contacting the DOJ again this week. We will ask "show me the freakin' law!"
