Old Legislation Forum Master Sticky

Note from Berge: The Links are screwy and I'm trying to find time to go back and correct them. Need to update this badly, so don't take all of it at full face value.

Welcome to the 2+2 Legislation Forum. Please take some time to review the information below to see if it helps answer some of your more general questions.

What is the Legislation Forum?

The Legislation forum is designed as a place to discuss and find information pertaining to legislative and regulatory activity that has a direct or indirect impact on poker. Most of the discussion focuses on recent federal changes in the United States law in this arena, but discussion at the state or local level is encouraged, as is anything relating to the topic across the world.

This is not a place to extensively disucss current political events or theory. The Politics Forum is the appropriate place for those matters and such posts will be moved there.

Some political discourse and discussion relating to poker legislation and advocacy tactics is necessary and allowed, just don't turn it into something that goes beyond that.

Tax questions are also directed here to some extent and we allow discussion on such matters. In general, if you have a confusing situation, please consult a professional tax advisor. 2+2 does not give any tax advice and anything you receive here is not to be considered professional advice.

TE edit: Below is some information that is useful but out-of-date:

Everyone,

One note on posts on tax questions. When posting tax advice, DO NOT advocate tax evasion. This includes speculation on the likelihood of the IRS catching tax evaders. If your post sounds like, "but how will the IRS catch me?", don't make it. If you do, you'll receive an infraction and your post will be edited or deleted.

Included in this are tax protester advocacy posts. Posts on the legitimacy of the IRS, the 16th Amendment, and other such posts do not belong in Poker Legislation.

Here are the rules from Politics. While for this forum these guidelines are for reference only, they are largely applicable here:

1. Attack the argument, not the arguer. This includes calling a user a troll, or announcing that you have or are putting someone on ignore. Having your opinion, claim or argument challenged, doubted or dismissed is not attacking the arguer.

2. Don't be a troll.

3. Don't post conspiracy theories or other unsupported hyperbole. Any non-obvious claim about the world should be supported by empirical evidence and an appropriate, reputable citation. The less obvious and/or more radical the claim, the higher the standard will be for supporting evidence and citations. Claims of facts that are refuted by available evidence or that cannot be verified at all have no place in this forum.

4. No broad-brush attacks on opposing political parties or ideologies

5. No calling for a thread to be locked or for other moderation, and do not criticize moderation decisions in this forum. Use the mod notification button to get a mod's attention, PM a moderator to discuss his modding, or, only AFTER trying the above, PM an admin or go to ATF.

6. Keep posts substantive, particularly new threads. Low-content or off-topic banter belongs in the LC thread or in a designated chatter thread on the subject. Standards here are subjective. If a poor thread was closed that you would like to make a substantive contribution to, PM a moderator with your contribution, and the thread may be reopened.

7. Site-wide rules apply here, as everywhere
-- No spam
-- No begging
-- No linked NSFW* stuff without the link being tagged NSFW
-- No linked porn
-- No wishing death on other posters.
-- No Trainwrecking
-- No filesharing discussion
-- No discussion of methods to break laws, encouragement to break laws, etc.
-- No plagiarism
-- No racism/anti-semitism/etc.
-- etc.

The 2+2 terms and conditions are here.

The old description of the Leg. forum was out of date, so we updated it to:

Poker Legislation:
