The intention of this post is merely to show how fickle we really are. Obviously I didnt do the above, itd have to be impossible wouldnt it? lol I just wanted to watch everyone jump onto this topic and prove my point that we are all way too preoccupied with one anothers earnings rather than discussing quality and meaningful topics...

I agree with you. There does seem to be more topics about people discussing money they earned versus quality discussions on this site.

Its just so frustrating, and I hate the way they will beleive just about anything. I can think of one member who has like 40 of the things going and they are a week old. It drives me insane...

Well I sure happen to think your right. I see a certain someone milking it now. bringing it up in posts. etc I hope sooner or later people get the jist of it. It is being used to get posts. Now some people are happy with their earnings great. But come on we don't need to hear it all day. Even if we do see it stop responding to it. Your picture is nice. :)

Wow! $74 in 4 days?! How did you do this? Please tell me your secret? Ahhh, had you going there for a few seconds, didn't I? I'm only kidding, I understand what you are trying to say. I hate liars.

You really did have me going lol... Its just so frustrating because half of us fall for it, and the other half are still interested even when we know its fake. Topics like it always have hundreds of responses whereas I have answered some great untouched topics today about drink driving, war and so on...

It is my pic, thanks for the compliment, but next time please try to address the topic raised in the discussion, its so frustrating when people go off on unrelated tangents when there is perfectly reasonable topic up for discussion...

Well, it might be possible if the person stayed on here for four days around the clock. I am in this for the fun. I tried meaningful topics, but they don't get any responses. Now, I have resorted to quick and easy topics, just to get some responses to them.

Yes, I am tired of the money, earnings, "no one responds to my posts", or the "say yes or no" discussions. It gets old pretty quickly. One of my favorite discussions dealt with the origins of Halloween. I actually got to practice research techniques a bit! :) I was a bit disappointed to learn that game discussions are not allowed.

Well its pretty much the same old threads where people are probably trying to get more responses in their threads = more money. and the same thing happens, people start coming up with their so called winning equations and 1 post = 3c and dont do this dont do that but do this and do that and u can earn 5 dollars a day just like them etc. 5 is quite possible if you stay here for like 20 hours cuz i stayed here for about 7 once and got over 3. but the point is also, people are in here for the money only. so now there are like at least 2 groups of people, the ones who just wanna earn, and the other who wants to see quality posts and gets annoyed with replies from people that go 'i have nothing to say to this' cut and pasted from other threads around. there is nothing wrong with looking at how to earn more, cause since we are at it we might as well learn. if tagging gives more its good cause it makes the thread easier to find (i dont bother tagging though hah!). but earning shouldnt be something right on top. its a good incentive, but this is no salary paid job!

Hahahaha! That is so so so so so true! I hate it when people do that,it is so annoying...Like the other day..I seen this one guy..Who put A website,and A picture of A car..Amd he only had 88 points..And said he had made enough to buy his dream car...And then someone said that it wasn't true,and so did I.and he said how he did it,and got that much money,Was he had alot of kids,or under educated people,and tell them they are talking to santa clause,and he said,They type all day,and that he had more than one account,Which I know the account part isn't true,because,If it was true,Then MyLot admin more than likely would of already got rid of him..So I knew it wasn't true..So,I understand where you are coming from.

I have seen the post you are talking about and the entire concept was ridiculous, he was only claiming it and trying to outrage people to generate responses from indignant people... And people fall for it...
• United States
26 Oct 06
Yeah...It was wack...And the sad part is..On most of the discussions that are like that,Almost 90 percent of the people fall for it...And beg to know what was there big sexret...I think I could tell them what the big secret was.. He/she should say.. "Oh,my big secret is I lied about the whole thing,and you all were so stupid to fall for it,and I just want attention,thanks for giving me it." That's what he/she should say right there.

You're right. You know the other funny thing I genuinely offered to share some knowledge with one of my discussions and people assumed it was me doing the same thing. I had to laugh... If I wanted to merely generate responses I'd say that, I'm pretty straight out...

LoL megs you really do prove a very valid point on this subject I was just browsing and straight away was curious, but what also gets me is when people post topics like asdfsdsadfs that seriously annoys me, and is a waste of database space

lol... I couldn't be happier somebody made a joke topic just to show people all this stuff is nosense. At first i was like no not megs don't tell me she got caught up in the scam to ...lol. Glad to see i was wrong. You got a + from me for this if people would stop buying into these post and post in quality topics things would be better. I applaude users like you who even respond to post in there topics with quality post. You don't get paid for posting in your own topic but instead of you just saying thanks for the response you respond with quality. It is refreshing to see and you deserve every penny you get on here keep it up.

Well i had $10,41 as my total earnings for Wednesday and Thursday, and then suddenly it went to zero and now it's showing just $2.04. Too new to really know whats happening. And I have had three or four postings erased, without any vulgur or bad content or bigoted or stuff like that, I was just telling people about this and censorship, many responses too and suddenly the posts were deleted.

Ok I am not doing this for just FUN, so of course I am curious to know who has made what. It is their decision to be TRUTHFUL about their earnings if they REALLY are volunteering the information. Many people joined mylot for many reasons. I've stated mine and that's the bottom line. I joined to earn extra cash.

Thanks for the compliment. You put it perfectly, everyone is so focused on money that they have forgotten what its all about. We are supposed to be here discussing issues of importance and relevance, not turning it into a circus show of earning acrobatics. Couldnt have said it better myself, great post!
