Full Tilt (Seemingly) Following PokerStars Lead With Affiliates

I had long ago changed over my player account on Full Tilt to my overseas address but had forgotten that there was even a physical address associated with affiliate accounts. I received the following:

Dear Affiliate,

We regret to inform you that due to recent actions by the U.S. government, Full Tilt Poker is still unable to facilitate real money play, deposits, or withdrawals by players based in the United States. Unfortunately, this includes the processing of any affiliate commission payments generated by your United States based players.

Rest assured that our technical and legal teams are working towards a solution that would allow us to return this commission to you as soon as possible. As always, all affiliate and player accounts remain safe and secure, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by these actions.

Please note that affiliate commission payments for your Non-United States players will take place as normal this month.

We will keep you updated with any information as it becomes available. Thank you for your continued support.
