Card Players supports the PPA position

Mean Gene has some nice comments on a suggested letter to your Congressman proposed by Card Player Magazine. The letter is terribly written and the position it takes is even worse.

Update. On a related not, Ed Miller shows really bad judgement by recomending PPA. The funny part about his post is that he's attracted by being able to join for free and that's one of the things that screams "scam" to me.

They just want numbers to be able to tout themselves as being influential. Numbers will help promote them but probably won't promote the cause. Lawmakers do care about voters, but few lawmakers are so stupid as to think that passing out free memberships represents influencing votes.

It's not just free, Full Tilt are effectively giving people money to join :

Yes, I might even join just for the $30. I'm conflicted about that.

But I think they're conning us, even if I do sell out cheap.

That offer also makes me suspect the legitimacy of Full Tilt.

I don't see where the con is. Sounds like they are a special interest group like any other one.
