I agree that deposit bonus are always good and possibly the best way to stimulate the poker economy. Either people will grind their bonuses or go busto if they go busto they will have a pretty good incentive to deposit again and if they go busto again that could be a good circle for the economy...

I agree, preventing withdrawals would definitely be a bad thing. But I’m suggesting incentivizing players to keep their bankrolls on the site. For example, maybe they qualify for a freeroll or they get extra bonus for keep $x on there.

For argument sake let's assume that this is the case and this is what's happening. I think poker rooms would do much better if they somehow pushed the US Government to make Online poker fully legal. Other than that I think most variables are out of control and is probably cheaper to push campaigns to make poker legal than to spend money doing advertisement, is one of those things that don't seem related but I think in this case they’re tightly related. For what is worth is likely that we're on some sort of scenario 3, as you describe it. That's why there are not incentives as you mention, for what is worth I am not sure what makes you think that incentives to limit withdrawals is a good thing for the overall economy of the poker world, imagine banks in the real world started to do that, lots of banks would lose credibility and a lot of people wouldn't put their money in the bank in the first place because who wants to have money stuck... @Scenario 2: Limiting withdrawals is probably going to hurt a lot more if any…
