Sigh! I am currently wage-serfing too far from home (leave for work at 7 and return home at 7); sometimes, I get a little snarky -- thanks for not taking it too personal. And only getting only 40 hrs per week (not like the beginning of the year when I was getting 60 hours).

Actually, playing online poker is not illegal in the US as far as I can see. The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act is concerned with blocking financial transactions related to gambling, but aimed at banks rather than individuals. There is no federal law banning the act of online gambling. There is plenty online about this issue, much of it rather confusing :)

Assuming this is directed at me, I wasn't referring to federal law, just Washington state. :)

There's nothing wrong with gambling.

Not if you are a millionaire or better and can afford to constantly lose. The problem is that most gamblers are not wealthy and can't afford to lose. So, yes, there is a lot of things wrong with gambling for those who don't know when to stop.

I luv pokerstars!! It is a great time waster for those insomniatic (if that is even a real word) type of nights! I stick with the play money version though ;)
