Re: fulltiltpoker.com & pokerstars.com domain names confiscated by FBI
they confiscated the domain names, not the servers or the databases. the games are still going on as usual. all they did was force the registrar to hand over the domain names. when uncle sam and the fbi knock on your door, you better bend over.

PokerStars statement on the blocking of players from the United States
20 April 2010 - On 15 April 2010, PokerStars ceased providing real-money poker to residents of the United States and related territories. Real money play and deposits by US residents are strictly prohibited.
An agreement has been reached with the US Department of Justice to allow United States PokerStars customers to cashout their funds. PokerStars will work diligently to expedite those withdrawals. All PokerStars player deposits are completely safe. More information here.
Players from the United States can continue to play on our site for play money only. New players who wish to create an account will need to do so using our play-money-only software, available at http://www.pokerstars.net.
The cause is cloudy — but maybe the variations by geographical location is not caching, but a distributed network of servers.Red Dwarf wrote:Yawn. Internet DNS and site caching is grand, eh?
