On the one hand we could say "All numbers and no play makes Johhny a very boring little boy".

I think we'd have to define lottery related but if we got too strict we'd lose a lot of humor and the "fun factor".

I thnk we'd also have to consider where obsession with one partucular thing would come into play.

For one thing the Gaming Forum would be gone completely, no? Or is the poll just about the Lottery Discussions forum?

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    Fine !  !  !

    I wanted to post about a 2 headed chicken skydiving in a tornado, during a thunderstorm in kansas, but I guess I can't.

    No problem. What goes around, comes around.....

      i voted "no". 

      no,  because everyone "meanders" a bit on the topic from time to time,  and if you get too restrictive,  you will kill the creativity of the board that freedom provides.

      for me,  it's a simple solution,  you don't like it,  or agree with it,  you don't have to read it

        fortunately for you,  compared to any other lottery related websites,  LP is akin to comparing a full-loaded package of DISH network, compared to having 4 local channels.

      not being rude,  but just stating a fact.....people act like someones forcing them to read something,  or be involved in a particular thread.

      what people don't like,  they attempt to shut it down,  or eliminate it.      not me.  not ever 

      if i don't want to read something, i disagree with it,  don't like it,  or it doesn't interest me..........i just............change the channel.

                  "i am .........."meant to"       

      P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

               until further notice,  it's  france everyday

        snip- what got snipped?

        There was a religious board where the admins and mods got a wee bit carried away and everyday there were more rules.

        Before the board did a complete revamp, someone had posted:

        If you guys were reviewing the bible it would look like this:

        In the beginning [snip], amen.

          This is wild.

          You can see the same dichotomy along political lines in this thread as in the thread about online gambling in New Hampshire in the News Forum the other day.

          Here in a nutshell is what is being perfectly illustrated in both threads:

          If people on the right of the political spectrum come across something they don't personally care for they will just bypass it.

          If people on the left of the political spectrum come across something they don't personally care for, they want it removed, regulated, done away with or outlawed.

          I really believe there is a genetic predisposition for this psychosis on the left.

          It's just too deeply ingrained to be an acquired or learned behavior.

            that is so true,  it is pathetically tragic

            i am a veteran in here of those exact same drive by's.

            personally,  i could care less, because i know how people operate,  and expect that as part of doing "business".

            there is a gazillion things in here i want no part of,  and vehemetly disagree with,  but "they" can rattle their can all they want.

            all i  (and anyone else with similar opinions/beliefs)  deserve,  is an  EQUAL  voice.       <-------- and "if" you notice,  i purposefully made the font "size appropriate".

            i go by facts as a barometer,   and my "facts barometer" today tells me 8,000 +  "views"  on the impetus for this poll,  says all that needs to be said.

            so unless the "yes" column on the poll can overtake that number,  then my vote is "no".   make that "NO" in bold lettering

                    ballparked it enough for a tie in. :)

                    it was profound enough,  that I would pay his fine, raise it to three 1/2lb angus burgers with everything on it,   two large curly fries,  and whatever large and in charge milkshake flavor happens to be ...........flavor of the month.

                    first,  before you can "fine" him a 15 yard penalty,  you have to define where the line of scrimmage was to begin with,  because the line judges can't seem to agree. 

                    once anyone does that,  i will call a timeout,  and while the "opposition" is in arrears as to how they will line up at the scrimmage line,  soon as the whistle blows,  i will punt.

                    from 45yds back

                    this move will create a "level playing field"  (which is all we desire)

                    doesn't matter if we start the line of scrimmage on our 5 yard line. 

                    i am willing to punt from the tunnel

                          Thanks visiondude but now I'm hungry at 11 PM.

                          I think I'm talkin heartburn tonight.

                          that comment was so right on the money,  i would fed-ex you all of the above from an in-n-out burger here in calif (sans "curly fries",   ONLY because they don't have "curly" in their fries),  because i know you are one of the few guys that realize what it would look like, and taste like,  even after it was sent "overnight".

                          maybe a mass printing of t-shirts are in order :)

                          you are going to have to do the front of the shirt in acronyms, or what i call....."acronemesis" in this case

                          the back of the shirt will be the "explanation" of the fine print it will take to cover your point

                          the fine print will act as a qualification process (for obvious reasons)

                          this has turned into a business opportunity for you

                          unfortunately,  the cayman islands are out,  but bumper stickers are still in

                            that comment was so right on the money,  i would fed-ex you all of the above from an in-n-out burger here in calif (sans "curly fries",   ONLY because they don't have "curly" in their fries),  because i know you are one of the few guys that realize what it would look like, and taste like,  even after it was sent "overnight".

                            maybe a mass printing of t-shirts are in order :)

                            you are going to have to do the front of the shirt in acronyms, or what i call....."acronemesis" in this case

                            the back of the shirt will be the "explanation" of the fine print it will take to cover your point

                            the fine print will act as a qualification process (for obvious reasons)

                            this has turned into a business opportunity for you

                            unfortunately,  the cayman islands are out,  but bumper stickers are still in

                             in-n-out burgers, whoa.

                            I used to travel from the White Mountains in AZ to Phoenix just for those things or a pizza at Salerno's in Gilbert (180 miles if I recall).

                            You'd get in trouble wearing a t-shirt like that in CA, wouldn't ya? lol

                              I voted "maybe not" because I don't like a zillion rules.

                              I don't remember ever reading the rules here. I guess I go by a certain "rule of thumb". Wish I could remember who the author of this little diddy was. I goes like this:

                              "A person can go anywhere and be accepted by any kind of people if they have one thing and that is love in their heart."

                              And here is the opposite-- a quote from Dr. Phil-- "Some people get out of bed everyday and start looking for how they can be offended."
