Can we have some IMMEDIATE input from PSO Staff on this and no "Pontius Pilate - you'll have to contact PS Support" for once

I am in Georgia and I see the FBI screen.

I have shown this to PSO-Staff and hope to have some feedback soon.

Maybe worth US players considering shipping their banks to non-US players they can trust unless some word comes back as to what is actually happening here.

Just checked out a bunch of sites, the only one that came up with the warning for me was UB.

Stars, FT, and AP all worked.

I've had all 3 clients up and running today too with no problems.

I was wondering about other sites and everything showed up fine for me but I am not from the US.
Decided to check a sportsbook since I figure they would be under more attack than poker.
Here is what they had posted.

I live in D.C. and I'm able to access the site... For now.

Funny that this happens 3 days after Congress let Washington D.C. legalize online gambling. Not just poker, but all sorts of games. All run by some Greek company called Intralot. http://www.washingtonpost.com/entert...HSD_story.html

Dammit. This looks like the start of a bad day.

UB.com is the only client I see that has this warning. They are dirty over there anyways. No worries here.

Now pokerstars.com is giving me the message.

Still business as usual on FT and AP.

I'm also able to log-in and sit at tables at all 3.

Are people having the poker clients shutting down now?

I'm semi-tempted to start playing well outside of proper BRM for the next few hours just for gits and shiggles.
