Petition to have all FTP shareholders and debtors banned from WSOP

I would like to start a formal petition to have all FTP shareholders and any player who currently owes money to Full Tilt that has not signed a letter of intent to repay to be banned from playing in all WSOP events this year.

If the WSOP do not agree to this I propose that as a community we boycott the WSOP in favour of the Venetian deep stack events. I firmly believe that if we come together as a collective they will have no choice but to listen to us. I find it intolerable that these people are able to continue in our community with no recourse for the theft of hundreds of millions of dollars. To the best of my knowledge only one single player has come forward and vowed to return all funds that they have received from this fraudulent company, this in itself is a disgrace. Whether they knew at the time that the dividends they received were stolen from players pockets or not is irrelevant, the moment it became clear that the money they were given was stolen each and every one of them should have come forward and offered to repay every cent they still have in their possession.

Please feel free to contact Jack Effel the WSOP tournament director on his twitter account @WSOPTD and make him aware of this thread as it gains momentum.

This thread is not a place for discussion about this topic, if you agree simply reply quoting the phrase below;

" I hereby state that unless all FTP shareholders and those who currently owe money to FTP and have not signed a letter of intent to repay are banned from all WSOP events this year then I will not participate in any WSOP event"

If I could kindly ask a MOD to help this thread not become derailed it would be greatly appreciated, this is not a place for discussion it is a place to stand up and be counted, a place for us as a community to unite and hurt these players in the way they hurt us by removing their ability to profit from the game whose reputation they have tarnished.

Isn't it reasonable enough for us to get the WSOP to exclude them? Do we have to exclude ourselves too? I don't think this is a good idea.

How about not giving Tapie an additional reason on top of the other millions of reasons not to buy FTP?
