Great job on the Twitter messages to Sen. Reid all! We represented well over half the submitted town hall questions, which was duly noted by the Washington Post, AP, and Politico, and poker sites like PokerFuse. So, we got the attention of the senator as well as some media. Additionally, he answered our question affirmatively: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhfVr6BnUFs#t=9m58s
Great job all! This really shows that we can be heard if we speak as one voice.
Seriously, this is a great "thing". Hopefully this "thing" will become a "movement" and then eventually we'll have online poker again as we once knew it.
won't be as we once knew it, but better than playing on Merge or any other site not knowing what's going to happen. I really did love playing with a HUD and rakeback.
