Subject:Poker has come under a lot of fire lately as the result of an article claiming the US Department of Justice was going to bring charges against the Merge Gaming Network. One of their harshest critics has been Gerry Poltorak. He published an article basically trashing the article's content and even went so far as to call the writer of the article a coward. A follow-up article was published that exposed a Skype conversation between Poltorak and a man claiming to be Subject:Poker's source.
