Does buying a membership allow one to ignore the rules of the site?

Ignore the rules?

You mean like when Todd busted you for posting under a half dozen different names?

Is that what you mean by "ignore the rules", little guy?

You did that without ever chipping in a nickel to help out, didn't you?

 

You're a penny-pinching cheapskate lib just like K-Y Jelly Floyd.

You two oughta get married. You could save on the K-Y Jelly that way.

Cheap and Cheaper.

        I never held more than one account at the same time and no evidence was provided to support the accusation. On the other hand, there is plenty of evidence you constantly insult people and thereby break the rules.

        Back to my original question. Is it because you pay money, the rules do not apply to you?

          "I never held more than one account at the same time..."

          Yes you did.

          "...no evidence was provided to support the accusation..."

          Spoken like the true vacillating, hand-wringing, squirming, sniveling, slimy little weasel you are.

          Nobody has to provide evidence or anything else to you, little guy; you're just the board schmuck.

          Now go eat some yellow snow and report back to me.

            Probably just a paid troll.  Trolls equal page hits and posts, equals rise in rankings and ability to earn money.  Win win for the right people.

                    Well, rocket scientist, from the Powerball website, there were twelve 2011 Jackpot Winners. The only group is the Flatbush Avenue Dodgers. The Carvajal Family Group is more likely a family than a pool. Hardly 2/3 of the 2011 winners, KY Floyd.

                    You also didn't mention that those in a pool might win and not collect for a good while because a former member of the pool thinks they have a share coming, and depending on the size of the pool an individual's share might not really be like hitting a jackpot.

                    I think I'm not the only one here wondering just whose 2011 Powerball statisitics you are paying attention to.

                    You do know that the discussion is about jackpots being won by individuals versus jackpots won by "groups", right? The jackpot was only won 12 times, but there were more than 12 winners. Besides the Flatbush Avenue Dodgers there were at least two other jackpots that were won by groups. One of them is clear for anyone able to understand the table you posted. The other received just a tiny bit of notice recently, both here and in other news sources.

                    That there may be a dispute that delays payment or reduces the amount  each individsual receives is irrelevant to the chances of winning. You do know that the discussion is about the chances of winning, right?

                    I said it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. I never said everybody would be able to understand it.

                      KY Floyd,

                      You said:

                      "Your chances of getting the powerball right are currently 1 in 39, but despite your delusions about PB being two lotteries, everybody who plays a powerball also has to play 5 other numbers on their ticket..."

                      Powerball website FAQ page:

                      Powerball is actually two games in one – a big jackpot game and a big Cash 5 game.

                      Tells me you are the one who is delusional Floyd since you think you know more about it than Powerball does.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      Lep

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        The only one that doesn't understand it Floyd is you.

                        Now you are overlooking your wild a** guess of two thirds of winners in 2011 and 90% in most years. Just go to the Powerball website, look up past winners, and see what you find. There is nothing there that is close to your claims. A grouop tghat wins isn't going to have one of the group members use their own name and only their name at a press conference and no group win would be listed as Charley Jones or KY Floyd. "Floyd ole buddy, you accept the check, pay the taxes, and then give us our shares, that's right neighborly of ya."

                        You're just proving yourself to be highly opinionated and completely ignorant that anyone can disputea your claims juist by taking the extra step and looking up the real data instead of taking your opinions, which are nothing but your opinions, as fact.

                        Perhaps you should go to work for Pravda or North Korean radio.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Don't make more of a fool out of yourself - you'll be right about something someday, Jellyman.

                          Kinda doubt it though.   LOL

                           

                          Wooooooo hooooooooo, Coin Toss!   Thumbs Up
