I'm a new comer. What most drew me to this site is the ability to verify how accurate my "predictions" or guesses with Lotter Post. I do have a "system" that I am testing and I utilize this feature to correctly analyze my efforts. I think everyone who posts numbers to play, should be REQUIRED to go to the "post predictions" menu and officially enter your numbers to be rated and your predictions displayed on the Stats Board. There's are my reasons why.
It has been said to me that most post for "fun". I guess for <snip>s and giggles. But we must remember that even though most of us are just having fun; most people who play Lotto are poor and minority. We should be held accountable for what we put out there as predictions because people have addictions and most are economically vulnerable to the idea of buying that million-dollar ticket.
When I go and buy tickets at the corner store, I see mostly elderly men and women of color. Also, I see a lot of working class and poor people who spend $20 or $30 at a time on scratch-offs; only to be greatly disappointed minutes later. It is for this reason that I feel that we who are posters and prognosticators should be responsible and realize that people bet, literally, their whole lives on what you say. Without everyone being verified through the Stat Board, it leaves out the opportunity for those who bet to make the best choice on who to listen to.
It's like selling crack to a crack-head to be simplistic in terms. If you ain't got the real crack and you just selling dummies (fake crackrock) then you, in my eyes, are robbing them blind. Yes, most here post for "fun" but you have to be socially responsible and aware that what you do affects people's lives; especially those who have a problem with gambling.
To be sure, if everyone had to be verified and send in their "post predictions" before posting numbers; on their State Thread, no one would listen to most of the people on the Threads because people would already know that you don't know what you talking about; and that's most of us. If you post 20 or 25 numbers for a draw then obviously one of them may hit just by of the "probability of random numbers" theory.
Predicting numbers IS a science in mathematics. We are all scientists. Some are good scientists and guess correctly; some are bad. Most are worse and don't have a clue, even though they want to portray to the world they have some sixth sense. Well, stop it. Most people are not aware nor do they know how to use their "sixth sense". But to hear them tell it; everyone knows the next number. Just hush and get verified.
To be honest, if all of the patrons on this site had to be verified and ranked by the stats, then 99% o the people here wouldn't even break the top 200. Stop believing that you have a gift of perception beyond this world because you don't. Stop misleading poor people and facilitating an addiction.
The point I'm trying to make is please don't trust anyone's predictions unless they have the balls to submit their predictions to Lottery Post to be ranked and certified. Take some responsibility in knowing that there are gonna be some who put their whole wallet and purse, and bills, and rent...on what you say.
