        No, Doyle's not. I read that he stopped representing the site a few days ago, although he was still playing on it.

        The part that I didn't like was the bottom bit where it said that one guy cut a deal and plead guilty for dirt on some of the people involved in the Black Friday indictments.

          A few thoughts on this...

          First I couldn't help but LOL when I saw that one of the sites was named Funtimebingo (I get that this may be on-line Bingo) as I thought to myself that if 2/3's of the PSO saw the name of this site their reaction would be "That's the place for me!!!".

          Secondly...Department of Homeland Security Special Agent???!!! DOHS is involved in this now. Really,US Government??? REALLY???!!!

          So you azzhats are stipulating that on-line poker is a matter of National Security? Methinks a certain government agency is pathetically over-funded and is trying to justify it's budget.

          Can someone from the US Government please explain to all of us how it's okay for a douche like Harold Camping to bilk thousands of gullible people out of $72 million all told,many giving their life savings,and NOTHING is done to this obvious fraud,but we need to be saved from engaging in a game of skill?

          Free idea for PStars... Re-brand yourselves "Ministry of the Rock at Pokerstars--A Place for the Devout and Value Whores Alike..." and enjoy the kevlaresque protections that our government will then afford you as no one can ever dare deny anyone the right to espouse any type of nonsense so long as they get some scripture into their BS.

          (Don't believe me ?...Google the 700 Club,Jerry Falwell,Jim and Tammy Faye Baker,Jimmy Swaggart,etc.,etc.,...).

          We could even have confession here in the Forum... "Dear Lord and fellow sicko's I have sinned before your eyes. I open bet 83o from UTG+1 and then called a 4x bet raise".

          Lastly this just reinforces my decision for myself to ride this out and see what the end game is going to be before I invest any money,time or effort in another site just to have the rug yanked out from under me. Because I'm willing to predict that not all the sites will be as forthright as Stars was in honoring their "responsibilities/debts/contracts" with their players should they be next on the chopping block.

            I was thinking the same thing. If Tilt doesn't have spare cash to pay out, then I wonder what'll happen to people at Carbon and Doyle's Room and the rest of them if they get banned.

              I think I named Moxie "post of the year" champion a couple months ago.

              Turns out I was right on the person, but wrong on the post. THIS one wins.

              But, hey! Didn't you hear? The new Camping end of the world date is Oct. 21st.

              While I did decide to start playing somewhere else today, just because I'm confident I can build up some free money in my spare time, hearing this puts the final nail in the coffin of any idea I started to entertain about making a small deposit...

              Here's to hoping I can freeroll a couple hundred and cash out fast.

                I made that exact confession the other day, and do you know what my penance was? Five Our Father's, 5 Hail Mary's, and 5 Days Abstaining from poker. I said to the priest WHAT? I can handle the 5 Our Father's and the 5 Hail Mary's. But 5 days without poker? I just made a donk call, I was on tilt, or I knew the other player was an ATC player.... It's not like I killed anybody! Really, 5 days? Can't I just make a donation to the church or something so I can get quicker absolution?


                LOL toughest 5 days of my life!

                  Haha,thanks MC.

                  It's really not hard when you have such fertile material to work with though. My righteous indignation meter has been red-lined for some time now (April 15th to be exact...) as the hypocrisy of the DOJ dropping the bomb on us without prosecuting anyone not named Madoff over the criminal tanking of our economy in 2008 already had me way,way pissed.

                  But when I see Homeland Security involved in this BS and someone perpetrating a Ponzi Scheme rapped in scripture being allowed to operate with impunity I'm ready to go Aticca on some mofo's,LOL.

                  It could be worse I guess. If this were an election year we'd prolly all be doing perp walks.

                  Any chance we can bring the Free Soil Party back?

                    Yeah make the donation to Harold Camping's "church" that way you're guaranteed a seat in the spaceship or whatever that Carpetbagger with a collar is selling.

                          DAMN.

                          I saw a few interviews with some of the dopes that gave this huckster money (some of them ALL their money) and the one thing I kept thinking was that PT "there's a sucker born every minute..." Barnum must be spinning at 5000 RPM's in his grave at missing the age of mass media.

                          How many of these idiots that he fleeced once already (Hell maybe twice,he did run this scam in '94 after all) do you think will give him money again with the October prediction? A few, half,more?

                          And more importantly do these nitwits play poker?

                          Also doesn't the Bible say something about stoning false prophets to death?

                          Like I said the fact that when some charlatan like this clown or the Bakker's or whomever scams people by using religion and people's fears to score a buck and that's okay,but we poker players are told that we are essentially children that must be protected from ourselves...well that just cooks my grits big time.

                          Let me put it this way...would you rather put your money on spiking a one-outer on the river or on this asshat?

                              The Bible specifically says that no man may know the day or hour when Christ returns. Therefore anyone making any predictions stating the date of such return is automatically wrong. Even if they somehow get the date right by pure luck, God will then change the date in his calendar.
