Advice sought - Minnesota censoring gaming sites

So the great state of Minnesota has decided to go the route of censorship and force ISPs to block Internet gambling sites, including ewallets. (http://www.startribune.com/local/439...3aPc:_Yyc:aUUI)

Note this quote:

"State residents with online escrow accounts should be aware that access to their accounts may be jeopardized and their funds in peril."

So ... as a resident, do I pull it all out? Or if the worst comes to pass, do I just drive over to Wisconsin, find a coffee shop, and pull it out then? Thoughts?

That will probably end with you on a few registries you'd rather avoid.

I think we are still aways away from this actually working I think this is the preliminary strike and it might not stand up at all especially since the blocking software is crappy to begin with.

if it passes, i'd pull it. no reason to put any unnecessary scrutiny on yourself.

The PPA seems to think it won't stand up in court. But ... I think to be safe I'll pull out about half of what I have in there right now. I don't want to run into another Neteller situation, where money is frozen for almost a year.
