WOW!! Can anyone ream me anymore than what has been quoted above?
Taking the "high road" on this one, I am very sorry to everyone on LP to have posted my tests since they are obvious upsetting people on this site. This will be my last post on LP! Todd, I am very sorry to have upset your clients! I was just trying to have some fun and to try a few things that trend analysis models are guiding to some success.
I wish you all the best of luck and hope that someone can post an "iron clad" pick 3 system that will suit the needs of the folks plays 1 to 5 numbers per day. Like I said, I was just trying to have some fun and did not want to upset anyone!
My sincere apologies.
I understand your frustration with people who post stuff like that without any attempt to comprehend what you're doing, but for gosh sake, saying this is your last post after one such misguided reply is a bit of an over-reaction, no?
I have posted dozens of times in support of anyone who posts lists of numbers, because unlike the reply you got, I have actually taken the time to understand the various reasons for these things, and I think that the addition of tests like this are a valuable resource that many people overlook.
Why do some people overlook these things? Why do some people post "why so many numbers" questions?
Because they are unwilling to open their minds and expand their options to include new ideas.
They look at someone else's post and see how it fits into their own methods, never taking the opportunity to step outside their little box and see that there are limitless different ways to look at lottery numbers.
You can write "No, I don't play all those numbers" 10,000 times, and they will still continue to reply, "How do you play all those numbers?"
Despite my ardent support and numerous explanations I have posted over the years (in addition to all the other people who have done the same), people continue to post dopey "how come you post so many numbers" messages.
There is nothing I can do to force people to open their minds. And there is nothing I can do to force you to ignore their posts, or to find other ways of dealing with them.
One thing I don't do is go around deleting posts by people who don't "get it".
You want to get those people to stop? Censorship is not the answer. We need another solution.
I really wish that a large number of people would be on the constant lookout for replies like that, and would jump right in every time it happens. People who want support on their own threads should lend a hand with other members' threads — even if they don't necessarily agree with or understand their posts.
It is so much better for the author of the original thread when other people come to their aid, because without anyone else supporting them, the original author starts feeling like they are defending their ideas against the whole world. Each time a new person chimes in with support, it feels like twelve people have come to their aid.
I think that may be what you're feeling, so please consider me your first group of twelve supporters.
Edit: After re-reading this, I'm going to add one more reason why people post "how come so many numbers" messages.
I am posting this to get the idea on the table, not because I think it has merit.
It's because they feel like they are working so much harder than you in posting only a few numbers — so when they hit a number they feel like it was a real accomplishment. When they see you post that you got a hit out of 200 numbers, they feel frustration that it was much easier for you to hit.
They obviously feel very competitive about their method of play, and a hit validates that their methods are working. When you hit out of 200 numbers, it is unfair.
You know what I mean?
Now, I'll go on to say I think that whole concept is balderdash. If a group of 50 people high-five each other after posting 95% of the combinations, then so what? The lottery is entertainment, so if you can't enjoy it, then what's the frigging point?
Anyone who feels frustration at "Way to GO!" posts should take a trip to the gym to work out their frustrations, instead of crapping on the person's thread.
