I was just wondering since many here post numbers that they don't always play how would you feel if someone played those numbers and then won.

Would you expect half, thanks or what.

That would assume that you told or posted the numbers and either didn't or couldn't play the game and that you didn't have a contract with the person to buy the tickets.

    All I would expect would be a PM saying something like: Nice hit in XYZ, played it and won, thanks.  And no I wouldn't expect anything, but you could buy me a beer.

        Na I wouldn't expect nuthing more power to em. I'm happy for someone who might win from my predictions and that's one of the reasons I post the numbers. If someone gets a good hit from them it makes me feel good that I was able to help. People have PM-Ed me and said they shoulda played my number in their state and didn't and all I can say is you can't play em all. Other have PM-Ed me and said good hit in such and such state and I PM back a thanks. I have PM-Ed posters who hit my state and congratulated them. But I don't PM em and congrat. them every day. I rarely play another persons prediction myself. I have enough numbers to play and contend with. But if I did play somone elses numbers and won I would definitely congrat them.

          I post a few numbers from time to time, IF anyone were to win, I say make your dreams come true, but dont be stupid with your winnings! Like that Powerball winner guy.

          I would be VERY HAPPY

          because I was able to help a fellow person out. Hopefully, he or she needs the money. I would be rather P.O.'d if some NeuroSurgeon won. I have never known a Surgeon or someone of that social class who needed money. however, the person would be sharing the jackpot, as I do play my numbers.

            If someone played my predictions and won I would be shocked to death.

                  I think some (at least myself) are happy to hear when someone wins from a number they (or myself) has posted. A coworker uses the sheet I have created almost religiously and wins regularly (on average of once to twice a week). As for myself, been so long since I have won, I settle for just creating a better system for chosing numbers. If I can't win, at least I can help others win. Seems the only way I can truly win is to keep those $$ in my pocket.

                  But then that is just my 2 cents worth...and like that...take it for no more value then that.

                  Sir Metro :-)

                  Madness...just another reason to excuse responsibility of one's action.

                    a "thank you" would be nice.

                    love to nibble those micey feet.

                      A thank you would be just fine.
