      I had one guy thank me for a prediction I made on here. They got over 2,000 dollars for a straight hit using my predictions.

              Mike, congrats.  Good for you!  Confused a bit, however. Did you also play those numbers and win?  If not, why not take a gift?  Thread on "what would you do if you found a winning ticket that was signed" had comments from people who said they'd gladly accept a gift if it was offered. So what's the difference since we're talking about integrity.  If someone won $5,000 and said "here's $500 for helping me" I'd probably take it.  (unless I thought it was a "sting operation" lol)  Depends on my financial situation at the time I suppose, but it's not as if you are running a business & charging for these services. 

              This brings up a whole other subject, since there are plenty of people who sell books and other gambling tools.  So are they cheating people who buy their books or take their advice because they make a profit?  The only reason I'm writing this is that I do the same thing. I've often turned down gifts or money when it's offered.  I can't tell you the amount times I found a pet and took care of it until I located the owner.  I used to always turn down the money, because I don't do good deeds for a reward. But some of these people were rich and just wanted to show their appreciation. This is their way of saying "Thank you for helping me."  Last year just the opposite happened and I was surprised she didn't at least offer to pay for the visit to the vet, so maybe that makes me a hypocrite. 

              This probably belongs on a blog, because I'm going a little off the topic, although I really believe it's related.  You've posted on other threads that you earn $350 a week at your job and support a girlfriend and 2 babies.  So, to me, 10% of $5,000 would be a nice bonus and buy a lot of groceries.  If someone wants to give you a few dollars, why is it wrong to turn it down?

                I think this is a combination of two very nice gestures!

                  That bogus $1000 bill. is that what they promised to send you? Now onder you "politely declined."

                  Just kidding. I respect yr decision to decline but I wouldn't ask, but if offered--and i have been--I would (and I have) gladly accepted.

                      I once had someone PM me about losing money playing my predictions and I assume there were others who lost money too but were kind enough to keep it to themselves. 

                      It's kind of people to tell a member when they won playing their predictions but predictors got to know it was more luck than their numbers because if their predictions were that good they would be playing them and winning too.

                      When my predictions do good and I didn't think they were worth playing, I get bragging rights and that's good enough for me.

                       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                        I Agree!  When I offer something, it makes me feel really good when they gracefully accept.

                        Some metaphysical folks claim that you should always accept a gift/offering even if you can't use it, because it's the universe offering it to you.  If you turn down gifts from the universe, they will stop being offered.  If it's something you don't want or can't use, accept it gracefully, make the giver feel good, then find someone who can use it to give it  to and make them feel good also.

                            Consider it this way.  Mike gave the original "gift" of the prediction.  He wasn't expecting nor does he want repayment for the gift.

                            It was an extremely nice gesture from the person to offer a gift in return and it was also a nice gesture for Mike to politely decline it.  I would have done what Mike did.  No harm, no foul.

                            Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

                              I've had people thank me many times. I also would never take money from someone who won with the picks i posted.
