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.

Oh please, I have heard many "rumors" and jokes about this person or that person being an alleged lottery winner and there will always be a lot of pathological liars and attention seekers who will infer they won it.  Rumors are not facts.  In most cases, people will assume an increase in financial wealth was inherited money or money from career success. In my case, they would assume it was from books (although no book makes $260 million without a movie deal, etc). It is fairly easy to redirect someone if they are "guessing" you won 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.

    I Agree!   He likes to use the sheep analogy since he is the black sheep of his family. They are growing tired of him living in the basement and being on the internet all day.

        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.

         I'm not living in "fear" of hitting the lottery and having my name revealed since i have hit it twice (state lottery 6 figure hits) so i guess no one wanted my money since it wasn't enough or whatever. my heat packin oklahoma ite is the one living in fear apparently of her own shadow and everything else. i've been to many an "inner city" and never encountered any problems. even detroit.

                            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.

                            Nah only if someone messes with me or my familyWink
