I think that we should bless this family for their good fortune and that they will make the best of the winnings.
Predicting them to see trouble, and to be spiteful towards them for their winnings is not right. If you had won the jackpot, would you want to see a website filled with negative comments about you?
I reccommend reading the book "Millionaire Mind" and in the mean time, Bless all lottery winners! Best of luck to all of them!
people always give congratulations around here to winners. look around.
maybe this couple started off on the wrong foot with the whole coy 'we're not looking for publicity' massive attention seeking b.s. comparisons to the patron saint of bad decision making, jack whittaker, will always be made (until someone making worse decisions publically comes along). besides, only they are responsible for what happens to their lives at this point. if they really are affected by what anonymous people say about them, they really are in for a world of hurt. those are the type of people who get taken in by raging, leeching relatives and scam artists claiming to be charities and investment opportunities... because they put their faith, not in the rock within themselves, but in the shifting illusions outside.
but i dont think anyone really wishes ill towards them. again, jackpot winners are usually greeted with congratulations here, not ill will. and yet, how many people keep their mouth shut about the drug addict winning the jackpot? this family made some publically poor decisions from the beginning. people commented on them, and what to expect from people who do make such poor decisions. and from that, other people learn what not to do when their day comes.
