    Anyone surprised there? I'm not, now that I've thought about it.

    It's been going on for so many years I guess it just seemed it would just continue indefinitely. But no it shouldn't be surprising that it's time finally ran out.

    At least I can still get large amounts of money from my friends in Nigeria.

    Log in to the domains. Alive and well. If there is one industry that has the resources to fight the Fed thugs, this is it.

    Why would you be critical of this intervention? People are being scammed and government is taking action on their behalf -- and it offends you? That seems to suggest you've been indoctrinated by neo-conservative influences and are responding reflexively.

    Bullshit...People are gambling, no matter how much the nanny statists tell them not to.

    It's their money and time...If the want to spend them on games of chance, smoking weed or in the company of hookers, it's no skin off my ass.

    I'm not saying people shouldn't gamble -- or smoke weed or patronize hookers. All of that is fine with me and I oppose government prohibiting any of those activities as strongly as you do. But that is not the issue. The issue is government cracking down on "fixed" Internet gambling. Cheating. Fraud.

    I approve of government doing that.
