This really saddens me. I remember Kobra well. My prayers go out to both families.

    Tragic story, but the most tragic thing is the life he attempted to murder.  I hope the man is able to recover, it does not sound good.

        Dang, its hard to imagine kobra pullin that stuff.

        He and i actually got along very well here on lotterypost...he was also very attentive and was wanting to learn and who also seen the pitfalls of excessive gambling..it is also sad that he wasnt able to keep his own actions in order ...

        very sad news very sad...

        rest in peace Kobra.

          I just saw on WXII that Mr Little was shot four times but is expected to make a full recoveryMr. Little's wife stated that even though they had fired Kobra, they still considered him a close friend.

                I'm pretty sure that it is not..... did a search and I think the person that you are referring to is named KOLA. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

                  There's not one thing more tragic than the next with this situation!  The whole thing is tragic.

                    Yes there is. Oh, yes there is.

                    An innocent, unarmed man was shot four times for no legitimate reason.

                    That is waaaay more tragic than somebody taking their own life.

                            You’re pretty good at estimating the worth of items. When it comes to people, you often fall short. How many people have you dismissed for no reason at all. You tossed their merit aside for an assumed reason, perhaps for the looks of the coat they wore. In your estimation, you somehow devalued people that, if you had seen through whatever blocked you, you might have found inestimable.

                            Don’t dismiss anyone so that you are not dismissed, for when you dismiss someone, you dismiss yourself.

                            There is no one who is irrelevant. Everyone is relevant. If someone comes before you or is even seen out of the corner of your eye, he or she came before you. Everyone comes for a reason. You don’t have to know the reason. You just have to acknowledge their presence. They may be tarnished like good silver. You are meant to see beneath outer appearances. Your inner blindness is often someone else’s outer appearance. You are the determinant of someone’s presumed value or lack of.

                            Sometimes whole peoples are undervalued because of superficialities. Until you know a person, or a nation, your under-evaluation is based on a supposition. Of course, you may attribute value to someone or a nation by the same premise. What do you value? Fame, fortune? Good looks, age, condition of skin? How many superficialities can you think of that decide the course of your life and what people you take into your heart and which people you do not.

                              I'm not sure why you're accusing me of erasing pictures.  They were obviously hosted on some other Web server, and whoever operates that Web server erased them.  Am I supposed to control the content of the entire Internet? 

                              Maybe you're not familiar with how images work.  I wrote an extensive Help topic about it; you may want to check it out.

                              If I DID erase an image from LP (this is a big IF, because I did no such thing), then I would have had to have a good reason to do it.  So rather than make an accusation on the public forums, a better approach would have been to contact me through private messaging to ASK about it.  It's much more friendly that way, and less prone to making false accusations.
