Even though dwoods response describes the situation perfectly, I just wanted to add my 2 cents as well.
Firstly I can empathise with your feelings, if you perceive that your intellectual property has been stolen. I can relate to your feelings as a victim of theft myself. It wasn't too long ago that a silly person stole members from this very bulletin board. It is my understanding that you - yourself are one of those members.
This theft of a proprietory membership database is one of the reasons that email addresses are no longer allowed.
But understanding your feeling of being ripped off and agreeing that is the real situation are two different matters.
I don't doubt that you are doing good things with your methodologies based upon your own individual initiatives but that does not preclude others from legitimately exploring similar paths. The concepts that both you and Dennis are referring to are not new. They have been utilized by a lot of lottery analysts and software designers. The forecasting method being referred to here as "announcers" has been around for a very long time. Just as a few examples ... since years back Gail Howard (the lottery expert of Advantage Plus lotto Systems) refers to these types of investigations as "trend reversal", "reverse cascade" and "cascade". Joseph Maching's famous Versa Bet software calls this phenomena "shadowing". Scott Piel's "LottoMan" was into this many years ago analysis "announcers" right down to the six individual placement positions. Another software that uses "announcers" is Lotto-Analyzer. Dennis clearly says in this thread where he got the "announcer" info from "...by the way I never used the program picker forecast of Lotto-Analyzer I'm only using the datas of announcer/announced,Numbers compilation,pairs. The best way to work with the program is to compile the announcing stats and take the stats of the last 5 to 8 draws...with the last 5 draws "
One final minor or stupid point .. but it caught my eye. You mention "you even chose the same colours for the hottest hits.."
Isn't just about anyone going to identify "hot" numbers with the colour red? As "cold" numbers would surely be identified with the colour blue?
End of my 2 cents or one penny or whatever
Snides ... all the best to you in your good endeavours and all the best to everyone else in theirs.
I'm sure that these collective efforts at cracking the astronomical odds of the 6/49 is going to pay off in the near future with several major winners
