    Yeah, sure, why not? 

    Lawsuits?  I believe you will be sued by someone, somewhere, who claims that you said this or you said that.  Don't most people who have won big find themselves being sued?

        I'll say "yes" for myself -- I'll tell you guys if I win big.

        By all means, please let me interview you if YOU win!  (Even if we keep your name anonymous!)

          With anonymity maybe, without anonmity posting such a thing on the internet would be crazy unless you did it to the level of three dozen sock puppets, alias ISP's, etc...

            If I had to talk to the press, I would definitely add "I want to say hello to all my friends at Lottery Post.com" but otherwise I would try to remain anonymous.  Sometime in the future after I got settled and my financial affairs were in order, I would write to Todd and give him an exclusive interview.  I'd like to move to a place where nobody knows me and I can live a "normal" life in a modest home driving a Civic, so I really don't want my picture to be all over the internet. It would depend on the jackpot size. If I win PB or MM, I'll be in the paper and on tv anyway, so why not contact Todd?

            There is one thing that would bother me. Anyone can read my previous posts and I mentioned some personal stuff regarding my job and my family. I wouldn't want to mention LP unless Todd is able to delete my past posts.  I'm sure some nosey reporter would figure out that I'm justxploring and I can't remember everything I've shared with you guys in confidence and anonymity.

              I wouldn't have a problem sharing the news of winning a jackpot with other LP members.  Since I removed my e-mail address from my profile I no longer get offers related to lotteries from strangers, even if I did I don't have a problem saying no.  I assume LP members understand people come to LP to share their ideas not their money.

                For those already here, sure...but if someone here did pop a jackpot, and announced it, no one will convince me that there wouldn't be some not-so-well-intentioned people joining the site just to try and make contact with that person- and hit them with the sob story of the century.

                Even just a mere rumor that someone here hit a huge jackpot would trigger that.

                  justxploring,
                  That sounds like my life now except I drive a red Chevy pickup, if I win the lottery I plan to live in a bigger house at the edge of town, hire some domestic help for the house work and drive a Cadillac.

                    So I guess my goal is to live your life? Smile

                    Funny, I get free domestic help as a benefit where I work and I declined.  I'd have to pickup all my junk and clean my place before they show up, so it would be too much work! Treat yourself now RJOh.  At least hire someone to come in and scrub the kitchen and bathroom every few weeks.  I've got clients who aren't wealthy at all who pay maids for several hours of house cleaning every month.  Regarding the vehicle, maybe I'd get a Civic for driving around town and a larger car for longer trips. If I buy a cabin in Western NC, then I'd definitely want a 4 wheel drive vehicle.  However, I still would never be flashy and drive an Aston Martin. What I mean by "normal" is that I simply want to blend into a neighborhood. Of course it'll be a very nice neighborhood, but I'd hate to be labeled as "That lady who won the Lottery."  It would probably be difficult to let go of my old ways.  I grew up in an upscale suburb of Boston and I'm currently surrounded by wealth in FL, and I still don't like hanging around rich people, so I doubt if I'd change my attitude.

                      My first action upon winning a large jackpot would involve filing a pre-emptive class action lawsuit against everyone I've ever known.

                      Todd, and each of you can expect personal interviews under subpoena with my attorneys unless I have you blocked, or unless you can prove beyond a reasonable doubt you have me blocked.

                      Once the dust settles on that I doubt anyone will wish for any interviews with me, personally, except in some dark alley.

                        Jack, I know men would give up the entire jackpot to meet me in a dark alley, but don't worry, I'll keep my distance!  Embarassed

                          That's the kind of thinking keeps me going, constantly threatens to drag me back to Boogie Street.

                            The money would not change me much except that I could help more people, which is what I would do with a large jackpot win. I would definitely tell Todd and ask some advice as well. When the dust cleared I would probably tell the folks here as well. As far as people knowing and giving sob stories. God gave all of us a brain so when you win a big pot be prepared to use it wisely. Most people are smart enough to know how to handle the situation. I think most people here would do fine handling the situation

                             

                            And if I were meeting any stranger in a Dark Alley, they would be staring down the barrel of a 45 guaranteed! Then we could talk LOL!
