PokerStage: A Not Very Modest Proposal

Falstaff has a great idea.
From Midnight on February 8th (EST) through Midnight on Sunday February 11 (PST), do not play any internet poker.

The companies that stand to benefit the most aren't really doing much to help in our plight. If they see the revenue drop, it should open their eyes. Join the boycott!

PokerStage: A Not Very Modest Proposal

To make it even more pronounced, we should encourage as many people as we can find to play right up until midnight on February 8th; then at midnight, everybody drop out off the websites at the same time. Then reverse the situation at Midnight on Sunday February 11 (PST)....right at midnight, everybody start playing again.

By doing this, we will accentuate how many people they are actually missing.

How many people can actually stay away from poker for an entire weekend? I think it's a great idea, but it may be difficult to implement. You need 10,000 players at least for anybody to really notice.

Except for the fact that it ignores the relevant laws and regulations, the political realities, the historical lack of effectiveness in boycotting third parties, and the actual FACTS, yeah, it's a great idea.
