LP members, I receive a call today from a programmer, we discussed ideas, I wanted to know if  he would be able to put together this system that I have.  Shortly after, the intial talk, we had a skype call, I proceeded to show him what I was working with, keep in mind I thought we were about to get down to business, then all of a sudden he said, that he couldn't do it.  "His personal beliefs wouln't allow him to doing anything with respect to gambling"  I simply replied that I respect his decision , and told him thanks anyway.

 

His reply had me seriously thinking, so my question to you is do you feel gambling is wrong?

 

Help me out LP, because now I feel bad for doing something I enjoy.

    Sounds suspiciously as though he might be planning on stealing your idea and nothing to do with gambling...

      maybe he just wanted to steal your idea?..why didn't he say right from the gate he was against gambling? I'm assuming you alreay has a prior lottery-related talk before the skype event...

        tell your anti gambling freind, to don't do any of the following,

        cross the street,

         drive a car or get in one or any kind of tranportation,

        eat, breathe,

        oh  don't get outta bed, just lay there in fear,

        until you die, ohh wait then you are forced to take your chances in the afterlife.

        also, tell em i said good luck.

          I really dont think so, but what I do think is, when I asked him if he understood and would he be able to do it, then he dropped the bomb.

            lol...well he's not my friend but what do you think haymaker?  Should I feel guilty for what I'm doing.  It made me feel guilty, so I immediately called my grandmother because she always tells me like it is and I asked was it wrong and she said kind of, then her phone died.  If I am wrong I am wrong, but I just dont want to just justify it, if its wrong.

              I was thinking that from the start, you know why didnt you tell me this from the beginning, although I had to respect his position but all he did was waste, my time right at the height when I was selecting numbers......lol

                      Might have been a problem gambler at one time and thought he could do it without a problem.

                      And then decided he better not take the chance.

                            I don't know but it was really weird for me, I was shock to a degree, the way he went about it, but like I said I respect his position..
