I think as long as you stick with Full Tilt and Poker Stars there's nothing to worry about. The games there are legit. You play at some of the smaller sites (like Ultimate Bet) then who knows.
And the ban on online gambling is ridiculous. Tax it and regulate it, and everyone would be better off.
That's really all the laws boil down to. Uncle Sam and the states don;t get a cut. Find a way to account for the monies and tax it and the government will endorse it.
