Default The state of online poker

I've been wanting to write an essay for a while since this whole AP thing re. the state of online poker and the people (players and operators) in it. In particular certain section of the community's attitude that this whole AP thing should be kept off the mainstream press so not to scare off fishy players, the willingness to have AP only get a slap on the wrist and then carry on merryingly along.

However, seeing I'm not exactly great with the whole essay writing thing, I'll just refer you to a P5 poster's comment. Though not on exactly the area I would have covered, it reflect 100% perfectly my feeling.

(Short version: Given a choice between the "only online poker world I can live in is one where guys like Scott Tom can violate our trust and not be personally accountable, then I don't want to be part of it.")

He's being way too dramatic. This situation isn't going to kill online poker. It won't even come close. There are tons of fish out there who are convinced online poker is rigged, yet they still play.

"saving the future of online poker is squarely on the shoulders of the KGC"... please.
