Hi,

   The LP accommodates members for discussions about and how create systems on how to beat lotteries. What happens to the LP when the lottery code is broken? One could say its existence and goal to win is self destructive. Given that, one could subsequently say, promoting none winning concepts is in the best interests hof the site (motive).

   Don't worry, I don't believe it, I just thought it might be worth dicussing.

    LP not only accommodate members discussing how to beat lotteries but also discussing subjects that have nothing to do with the games.  I think lotteries results are truly random for the most part and even the computer RNG results are close enough to true random such that discussions about the best ways to beat them have a long life ahead.

    It's those other discussions that could be self destructing.  Having to read someone rants their personal views on non lottery subjects in every lottery that has an interesting subject gets old after a while.  Todd has provided a blog section for members to discuss such none lottery subjects but some members have an agenda to restate their personal views over and over in any thread that attracts lots of interest.

        Interesting angle, JKING, but I'm pretty suree if the lottery code was ever broken the game or games that the broken code applied to would no longer be available to play.

        Something else would, but not those games.

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

        Lep

        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.

          I couldn't agree with you more. Heated political argument creates a hostile environment in this forum. Argue  Like the recent discussion about the debt ceiling and another discussion about God and what not. If one wants to discuss politics or religions, there are plenty of other forums dedicated for them, such as Yahoo Answers Politics & Government Category, Religion & Spirituality Category.

                    We have plenty of redundant threads that are annoying too, but that should be expected considering the size of community and the number of members that come and go. If the heated arguments don't escalate into other discussions, they are easy enough to ignore. The biggest problem is starting threads in the wrong forums and posting off topic predictions when the threads are in the right forum.

                      Nobody probably should worry about anybody breaking the lotteries, if they had too they could always make other harder to win games and they do every so often.

                          1) Why would anyone feel restrained from discussing politics or religion here when the webmaster himself initiates threads such as the one with the headline about the atheist who converted after his mother won a lottery?

                          2) Was anyone surprised that a thread like that would result in controversial postings?

                          3) Did anyone wonder why so much crude and abusive language was permitted to continue as long as it did?

                              If someone were to take you up on that, your space could then be filled by someone who might have the guts to address the 3 simple questions, or when they have nothing to answer with, keep quiet.
