    First of all I am not a sheep, secondly I have never had a discussion with you. Last time I checked I am entitle to my opinion and I think a jackpot winner should have that right to remain anonymous if he/she or they choose.

    Now the reason I want to remain anonymous is because I have two teenage boys that I want to protect. There have been to many stories of nutjobs threatening to kidnap children of jackpot winners.

    I Agree!

            then this website will suffer a quick and sudden death. no more stories no more website traffic. no more lottery books sold etc. life is a crapshoot anyway. a wrong way driver on the thruway could doom you quicker than getting your name released because you won a lottery. i would say don't play if you live in such fear.

            I don't think so.  It's not like the states are passing bills that REQUIRE winners to stay anonymous.  They just have the choice.  Idaho doesn't require a press conference, yet most winners do it.  Some people love to be in the spotlight.  Let them.  And let the people who want to be anonymous win their own way.  There will still be plenty of winners stories, some with names attached, some without but interesting just the same.

                    i think you're leading the league in hitting the i agree button. that makes you a sheep. you don't have your own opinion you just agree with the flock. there have not been manystories as you say of nutjobs threatening to kidnap jackpot winners children. why do you play if you live in fear of nonsense like that? i don't think you better let your teenage sons go away to college because some nut job with a gun might go on a shooting spree. just keep them at home forever and shield them from society's harm. if they go into the service maybe you could follow them to afghanistan and walk in front of them so they won't be harmed. trust me if by someone astronomical chance you hit the lottery people will find out. this anonymous nonsense will not work whether you have the right to it or not. the general public has a right to know who the winners are. beyond that it is really none of their business what you do with the money.winners identity must be disclosed to protect the integrity of the lottery.

                    If my fellow intelligent LP members post something that I agree with I will use the agree emicon. I never said I lived in "Fear". As a parent my job is to protect my children from crazies like YOU. Why do you care if the winners goes public or not something is wrong with YOU and do not give me the integrity of the game cr**. FYI My hubby and I are proud license conceal to carry weapons in Oklahoma so let a nutjob walk up on us.

                    As far as serving my hubby has served this great Country and my Father and Father-in-law and if my boys want to serve they will serve this Country proudly. Here's a few stories about children being threatened read the follow links below to read. Also catch the next episodes of LCML there were a lady in Florida and I believe the Couple in Canada and the lady in Oregon.

                      There is an app for that maringoman.
                      Simple state the following:
                      A short balding Latino man was the winner of the $120 mil PB in Anytown last night..
                      A shapely Caucasian blonde woman in her late 20's from Anytown was the winner last night in the $210 mil MM jackpot.
                      A Tall African American with 2 diamonds in his left ear & a gold " grill" was the winner of the $120 mil PB jackpot from Anytown last Saturday. .
                      See...problem solved.

                          Apparently you have not checked out all the forums on LP. And if all 50 states allowed for anonymous claims (or, as an option, to claim via an entity such as a trust which DC uses), I fail to see effect on any lottery site. I also think you take the word "fear" and exaggerate it beyond what was meant.  There are a lot of serious precautionary steps lottery winners would have to take with children, other family members and their own lives.

                          You must live in a very small town and/or be very young. Perhaps you have not been to the big city where people will shoot you for your iPhone. Try working or volunteering in the inner city sometime.

                          I think what will happen down the road is that most states will have either a grace period of a year to remain anonymous or, if it is permanent, release some info to satisfy the curiosity of people. When the 3 Maryland educators won that huge MM drawing, a fair amount of info was released which served policy needs.

                          By the way, take debate 101 sometime as your next elective in high school. Calling your opponent a "sheep" is childish and more than a little unsophisticated.

                          Visit the big city sometime.

                            if they all pass it 99.9% would choose it. even me. which would doom the site. the press conference we could all do without, however, you'd have to be extremely deceptive and clever to avoid having people find out. someone would blab, a relative, your bank, your real estate agent, your car dealer, your dry cleaner someone with a minimal amount of determination would find out, which could actually make it worse than having it revealed when validated.

                              you actually pack heat. i guess there's another reason to avoid oklahoma other than the constant tornado threat. so if you're in a convenience store and a robber comes in with a gun you're going to pull yours out and say hands up and drop your weapon. you better shoot first and ask questions later lady.
