With the volatile situation surrounding the state of poker and US law, we can certainly expect some questions about these subjects. How should they be treated? Are they welcome at all? Does any special consideration need to be made for the fact that things will change frequently?
I believe any question about the laws and legalities regarding poker, gambling, online tournaments, etc. should be closed as too localized.
Laws vary widely from country to country, and even state to state, and they also change over time. Any question regarding the legal status of gambling would reflect a limited geographic region, and, more importantly, a single point in time. While the limited geographic region isn't a deal breaker (information about the laws in the U.S. or even in the state of New Jersey, for example, is certainly of interest to a sufficient number of people), the changing nature of laws is. This content would not be of lasting use to the internet community simply because there is no guarantee that any information provided would be up to date by the time someone comes across the answer when searching for information.
Furthermore, we are (for the most part) not lawyers, so any advice regarding "yes, this is legal" or "no, this is not legal" must be taken with such a large grain of salt that I question its usefulness to our community.
Answers that consist of fairly general discussion, with links to specific, relevant, official government sites that describe the current relevant laws would avoid the issue of our site containing potentially out-dated information, but answers that consist of nothing but links to other resources probably aren't indicative of high quality questions.
