    The comments following that article are very interesting and almost entirely condemnatory of the enforcement authorities, accusing them of stealing money earned in a harmless pastime practised largely within the homes of adult Americans.

    I hope the enforcement authorities take note before bragging about how much seized money they have received and what they're spending it on.

    i guess the porn sites don,t make enough money for it to be worth their time to bust.

    oh wait they are most likly getting a kickback from the people who run those sites just to look the other way.

    this is enough to piss anyone off.:mad::mad::mad::mad:

    and while they are busy busting the gambling sites for letting us spend our money the way we want.

    there are durg dealers and baby killers running all over the place.

    :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: i wish they would make better use of their time.

    Porn is 100% legal in the states - just so the performers are 18 or older.

    They may just have shot themselves in the foot with the new weapons they have bought. It seems the comments have blown away the myth that the money was seized from the companies, and make it clear that it was seized from PLAYERS. The DoJ have always maintained that these monies were being seized from the companies and "criminal gangs".
    This news is also appearing in mainstream media, rather than online gambling related news media. ALL Americans are seeing the vigour with which online gambing is being pursued, and comparing this with the lack of vigour with which other undesirable activities have been pursued.
    They may also wonder why organised crime has INCREASED in their perception if so much money has been seized from the criminal gangs responsible.
    The brighter sparks may also notice that these "criminal gangs" have London stock market listing:rolleyes:

    Now, all you need is to "out" a few senators and congressmen as keen online players, who have somehow managed not to get THEIR money seized;)

    As a fan of Roman history, it amazes me that nothing has really changed in politics since the days of the Roman Empire - and probably long before. Campaign "funding", dodgy ways of passing through new laws, Guantanamo and this sort of thing prove the point. Although, on the bright side, at least we have good sewerage systems and curly roads now.

    I really enjoy some good porn once in a while and like Bryan said, porn is legal in the US so I can`t see why they should be "busted".

    Welp, that was a sickening article. One big, self-congratulatory piece of crap.

    I agree with jetset, though, and I'm glad people are taking notice.

    I'm particularly fond of this gem:

    Porn, well you'll find a lot of sex crimes going on in this country and not always between legal aged consenting adults. I would venture to say that most sex offenders and pediphiles are also porn partakers.

    How many people have been arrested for pulling someones arm thinking they were a slot machine? None!

    Thanks for that very revealing link 4Ofakind, To bad those idiots don't realize the money stolen is from their very own honest, hard working voters!

    yes i know they are legal in the states.

    no accounting for taste:puke:

    just as many people become addicted to porn as to gambling and they 2 lose everything

    family home life saving.

    shows you how messed up
    the u.s is when they tell us we can,t spend our money playing on-line.

    but its o.k to watch people f--king each other and then as some people do go out and rape someone.

    and no one on here is going to tell me that that does not happen.

    what harm does on-line gambling do?

    on line porn on the other hand shows a warp since of how 2 people should act together

    and there are no blocks to keep young kids from stumbling on these sites.

    its all about the money the goverment is stealing from u.s players if they really wanted

    to stop us from gambling on-line they could they choose not to caz then they would lose all that money that they get from busting sites.

    if one is allowed and people are allowed to spend their money on crap like porn then we should also be allowed to spend our money on playing on-line.

    makes no since to me. jmho.

    p.s all i,m saying is that the same reasons they are using for stoping on-line gambling can be used for porn also.

    so if they are going to go after one then they should go after the other one as well.

    I really don`t understand why you are comparing porn with gambling. You obviously do not like porn, that is OK of course. But to say that online gambling should be legalized because porn is legal or that they need to "go after" porn sites since they are going after gambling sites is really not valid arguments in my opinion. These are two completely different industries.

    As an admirer of the online gambling industry and porn, I really hope that you Americans will have the opportunity to legally enjoy both of these great things in the future :thumbsup:

    This is a little off topic (although not so much as the porn stuff...), so...
    How does it work if the DoJ, or whoever, wants to start going after the players? Can they/ would they be able to subpeona ISPs from sites such as this to gain member information? If you search around the forum there is enough member contribution (winner screenshots, the ATB section, payment processor section, etc...)to "hang" the majority of US players. I'm just curious, and am NOT trying to start any suppositions/conspiracy theories or anything.

    yes it is valid at least the way i look at it.

    i agree they are two completely diffdent industries but what i,m trying to say is the reasons they give for going after on-line gaming.

    people get addicted to gambling and lose their homes familys and life saving underage kids can gamble on-line on and on right.

    well there are some people who get addicted to porn and lose everything 2 and if you don,t want to think porn then think anything that someone can get addicted to.

    why is it that the goverment has the right to pick and choose what we can and can not do?

    kind of makes them the goverment two faced when they say we can do one thing but slap our hand and tell us we don,t have the right to do the other thing.

    when in fact both things have the same end results with some people they end up losing everything.

    o.k enough if no one can understand what i,m saying.

    thanks 4 of a kind

    @kauphy...
    I understand where you are coming from I think. Why is it legal for an industry to operate which "encourages" the likes of rapists and pedophiles? Definitely more harmful in ALL aspects than online gambling. Did I get it right?
