    Default Gambling Bill gets last minute push

    This might be bad news for gambling webmasters:

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Most forms of Internet gambling would be banned under a tentative agreement reached on Friday by U.S. congressional negotiators.

    Pending a review by other lawmakers, the measure could be brought up within hours for passage by the House of Representatives and Senate and then forwarded to President George W. Bush to sign into law.

    Hi ya'll. I noticed there are a few threads about this topic today so I suggest consolidating them all under the thread above.

    In light of this entire fiasco (imo it's A typical polli BS) even though I'm not in the USA I've chosen to move my hosting to the UK. If this was to go down, you may find hosting companies being given directives to pull the pin on your hosting accounts in hours of this getting signed.

    If you are a USA based webmaster and are already hosting off shore I'd also look into implementing geo IP sniffing, at least have it on stand by just in case.

    Do the right thing, even when no one is looking. It's called integrity.
