Do an online gambling site's problem gambling practices influence your marketing?
Share your thoughts about problem gambling practices, and how much attention you pay to them. Included are tools like self-exclusion for specific time periods, and limits on the amount of money that can be gambled. I'm asking this question partly because I think some webmasters might decide this is an area where more focus could be appropriate. So, if you have that view, be sure to share your thoughts on that front. View poll
