LOTTOMIKE is the new Cash_Only.

Makes brief, no value added, comments on every thread.

LOTTOMIKE - are you trying to catch up to Cash_Only in number of posts?

Try a new tactic - quality instead of quantity

Good luck,
Jake

    I have mixed feelings on this one.  On one hand I like the enthusiasm of anyone who wants to participate in lots of discussions, but on the other hand I agree with Jake as far as only adding a reply if it contains a genuine thought.  I do not recommend going through messages and adding replies everywhere you go in rapid succession.  It may have been done with good intentions, but to other people it looks spammish or trollish.

      LOL!

      I was wondering if that was something he did because he couldn't sleep or something.

      It must have been in the middle of the night in USA when he was active.

        I can't say anything.  I do it too.  However, Lottomike loves this forum and I have to stand up for him.  A lot of things he posts has quality.  Nonetheless, It's an open forum and everyone can state what they think on here.  Unless Todd doesn't like the way you think lol.   JK Todd!

          Hey, I even leave the posts on here where people beat me up, so you were really joking, right?

          By the way, I like lottomike also (and I've told him that) and I like his posts, so don't misconstrue what I said.  I'm only talking about posts that have no benefit other than boosting quantity of posts and bumping.  It's OK even just to say "I agree" in a message, so again, that's not what I mean.

                He'll never catch CashOnly and several other posters who do this unless they stop posting for a year. Some people have to have the first and last word. Even if it means saying nothing important. What bothers me about people that do this is a thread might have some important contex. And you have clicked track this topic. then when you log on and open your mail box and see 20 posts that have comments and you open it to see one line responses that have little or nothing to do with the post. Where some people might not be affected by this other people who are on a limited time schedule might find it objectonable. Because of the time involved in opening and going to the topic to find nothing has been posted except yea me to or that looks good or take the cash only or some other banter.

                If i were on a tight schedule i would spend most of my time unclicking topics i wish to follow and go to the search feature to see if any responce were posted i might be interested in finding out about. People who for whatever reason feel they need to compete to be the top poster should think about how they might feel if somone was to do the same thing to his or her posts every day several times a day. Sorry for being so straight forward about this but i shoot straight from the hip.  My time is just a valuable to me as to most people and i'd like to open a topic and see somthing credible posted about the threads topic. However i realize that ain't going to happen on most days.

                  four4me makes a good point.  There is a time issue for all of us and we should respect that of each other, especially with 14,000 (?) members.

                    Interesting that neither Cash Only nor LOTTOMIKE have commented on this particular thread...

                      I'm very passive-aggressive most of the time, which is why I never brought this up.  I'm sure that CO is sincere, but c'mon, I'm going to play NY Lotto when I want to play NY Lotto and I don't need a mother figure on LP to tell me otherwise.  As for Lottomike, I just find the large font tough to read, lol.  Nothin personal.

                        Personally, I don't blame them. I wouldn't respond to such a petty attack, either.

                        LOTTOMIKE has made some significant posts to this forum, and CashOnly, well, what can I say about CashOnly that hasn't already been said? Many of his posts, while succinct, do provide a chuckle now and then, and just because he doesn't have a lot to say doesn't make his opinion any less significant than another. CashOnly is certainly passionate about the issues he cares about; I think it's obvious that he doesn't like annuity payments, and he's not about to let any of us forget it. We can't fault him for that.

                        I've said before that I don't like one or two word posts, and that I'd like to know why or how members reach their conclusions on any given topic. Yet, Todd has refrained from imposing a minimum word count for posting a response, and anyone who is familiar with my work on this forum can see why this policy is a blessing to most members. 

                        For those of you who have not read my posts in other threads, I'll state here that most of my comments are very lengthy and long-winded. The sad part is that they usually take longer to write than read, as I take great pains to ensure correct spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure in the finished document. Before I hit the "Post Reply" button, I proof-read my comments, rewrite anything I'm not happy with and, finally, I run the Spell-Check feature, which Todd was nice enough to include for our benefit. Once I'm satisfied with the content, I copy & paste the text to a blank email in case I lose my internet connection. However, in spite of all this careful preparation, mistakes do sometimes slip through. 

                        Todd requires none of this; it's my choice to follow these procedures because, if I'm going to take the trouble to write out my thoughts on a current topic, I want other interested members to be able to read them as easily as any newspaper article.

                        I could care less who has more posts than I do. Last time I checked, there was no prize offered in this category, so why does it even matter? If a topic interests you, write down your comments, no matter how brief, and push the button. The rest of us will either read them, or we won't, but my own experience has taught me that you're more likely to get a response to your own posts if you put a little thought into them first.

                        It's the discussion, the exchange of ideas and opinions that makes this forum what it is. Admittedly, Todd has also played a small role in the development and success of LotteryPost.com, but even he will tell you it's all about the members.

                        As many of you know, I have a fondness for controversial issues, and will jump into the fray with guns blazing. These are my favorite threads, as emotions run high on both sides of whatever topic is being discussed. When people become emotional, they tend to vent, and their true thoughts and feelings come pouring out, so their posts are full of thought -provoking commentary.

                        This is my element. I want to read comments that make me think about the issue. I want to hear your arguments so I can counter them with my own. I want to know why you disagree with me, so I can explain why your position is the wrong one. If you agree with something I've said (it could happen), then tell me why you agree; bring up a point supporting our perspective that I had neglected to mention, or perhaps another which had not occurred to me. Give me, and all the other members, something to THINK about. Give us a reason to contribute to the discussion.

                        If you're not feeling very verbal, though, or if your just not a wordy person, by all means, put your two cents in anyway. The forum is for everyone, not just for those of us who don't know when to shut up, because I believe that when someone has something to say, no matter how brief, he should be able to say it even though some others may think he should have put more into it than he has, as opposed to yet others like jim695 who just keep writing and writing and writing but don't really add anything to the subject being discussed other than lots and lots of text, which we have to wade through to see if we might reveal some nugget  that's actually relevant to the topic, and that could have been summed up in a sentence or two but instead is deeply hidden in volumes of useless commentary which goes on and on but never seems to come to a point, assuming there is a point, in which case it should be made in as brief a manner as possible but, for some reason, is never expressed briefly.

                        Now, be honest; don't you wish this had been written by LOTTOMIKE or CashOnly?

                        Keep 'em coming, fellas.

                        Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...
