California man learns $10 million reason not to tell your roommate if you win the lottery, police say

This past Christmas, a man in Vacaville, Calif., learned a grim, but useful, holiday lesson: Sometimes, don’t spread glad tidings. Keep the good news to yourself.

It was Dec. 20, and the city of about 100,000, located midway between Sacramento and San Francisco, was festooned with white lights and toy reindeer. Hoping to get his hands on a bit of extra cash for the holidays, the Vacaville man went to a Lucky grocery store and paid $30 for a scratch-off lottery ticket that odds said would leave him at a loss.

But the ticket turned out to be a winner, and promised to flood his bank account with $10,000, or so he thought. The lucky lottery contestant couldn’t contain his excitement. He returned home to tell his two roommates of his financial success.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
