Some people have asked me why I strongly oppose Internet gambling and I can sum it up in one sentence: Gambling on the Internet is for chumps. “Chumps” is an old-school reference to naïve and foolish people, the ones who think if they make just one more bet they will strike it rich but instead find themselves in a deep, deep financial hole. Long before the Internet became part of our daily lives, the chump sought out the corner street game where you tried to pick out the “money” card out of three cards laying face down on a cardboard box.
