I am rethinking how i operate on mylot. i do not think about all my friends, only about doing silly discussions. let me explain. it is nearly xmas and mum & dad are getting stressed out. i got into a blazing row with mum for not helping out enough and only thinking of myself. this got me thinking about my mylot buddies. i do not give enough responses to all my friends. So for the next month i will only respond and leave discussions for a later time. Do you think you are a taker or a giver? Do you have the perfect balance of discussions and responses? do you get annoyed with people like myself who mainly start discussions? let me know your thoughts!

I am annoyed with people who add friends in large amounts, and never reply to their topics.I once messaged a guy and told him - I have replied to every of your topics, and you didnt reply to mine.Why did you add me then? He told me that hes got many friends (of course-he adds them with the dozens)and taht he cant reply to all.Then he told me my discussions arent of his interests.So now my questions is: IF HE DIDNT HAVE COMMON INTERESTS WITH ME, WHY THE HECK HE ADDED ME AS FRIEND???? Sorry for this whining, but it really gets on my nerves! Aboyt myself, i create topics rarely, i mostly reply to friends and other discussions.I dot have notifications active, so i might miss some topics of friends.But they are not that many, so i think im fair towards them.

I give more than I take in general, but I can also be a pompous a$$. I've never been annoyed at you for starting many discussions and you have been very good about replying to the few I start, but sometimes when you are scraping the bottom of the barrel so to speak, I cringe at some of the things you say about your mum, who seems to me to be a veritable SAINT for letting you live after some of the diminutives you have uttered against her. On the other hand, I was a kid once, too, at least I think so. No doubt so was she. It is just that they hadn't invented the internet yet, so we couldn't embarrass OUR mums in front of the whole world! If you want to give me a little Christmas present, though, the best possible thing you could offer would be that you help your mum and dad a lot, especially your mum, both by chipping in on some of the holiday work, but also by doubling up and the sweet and cutting back a little on the sassy (at home, that is!) for just a while. Do that for me and I'll even let you keep your cat, and the monkey, and the cute little dog, too.

ooops! Oh dear - you would think he would have learnt wouldn't you? I think I would be cruel and put it out of his reach altogether, then he would HAVE to get up to switch it on and not break this one! Mind you I am very cruel and sadistic AGB! Yep I am still calling you Amazing Grandpa Bob - that is because i really do think you are amazing! Hugs xxx

Good grief - i can't even answer a discussion properly! Sorry about that xboxboy I opened 2 discussions to answer and put the response for the other one into yours - please forgive me - I am just getting back into the hang of things! Ask your Uncle Alfie - I have always been a bit of a numpty!!!! As for discussions I guess it is whatever you prefer doing that matters, I think things balance out between posters, responders and those who do both so just go with the flow sweety! As fore helping your Mum and Dad I would definitely do that more - it will make life much happier and remember Santa is making his list! xxxx

Well i start a FEw discussions a day probably, and i answer my friends discussions everytime i come on, usually after i respond to my discussions responses. I think i like responding better. I am not that imaginative, and i can rarely think of a good topic that a large diversity of people may be interested in responding to! MY CHICKEN IS BURNING!
@xboxboy (5588)

my chicken is burning! sounds like a great discussion! you do what i do, respond to discussions and then start replying to friends. i usually answer any replies i have to my discussions, then start a new one, then seek out friends discussions. have a great yule man!

I do not think that I get annoyed with you, but it is nice to see you responding to some of my discussions. I really enjoy and look forward to reading and responding to your discussions. I never know what you are going to say and it is always funny. We need you to be you in order to bring balance to Mylot. I know that I usually do pretty serious and thought provoking subjects, but I love to laugh. Maybe I will lighten up a little and you can be a little more serious, but not too serious, deal?

i don't think i can keep serious up for too long!

I think I reply a lot more than I start discussions. I go days without starting any discussions quite often. I do replies almost every day, and several of them. So I'm pretty sure my scale tips far more towards replies. That being said, while I do like to reply to my friends, if I only have a little bit of time I'm more likely to look at things in my interest categories first. So while I might be a "giver", I'm probably not the best "mylot friend"... though some of the people I'm really close to see me pop up more on their discussions than I might on other people's. Sometimes the people that mostly start discussions bother me, but only when all of their discussions seem to be exactly the same. Since you're pretty original, I don't have that problem with you! :)

i have never thought to look in interests! i will do that! i always do friends and new. love your posts! pretty original too!

I do my best to both start discussions, respond to others discussions as well as add comments to my responses in my discussions. I have a few friends on my list that operate both ways. Some just do discussions while some just respond. It's fine either way by me as I get paid for my actions whatever they are here. Thanks and hope to see you around. Take care now. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I think this is a great and thoughtful thing of you to do. I haven't been annoyed with any of your posts or that you have mainly posted. They've been particularly fun to read and I think that in itself makes it ok that you spend most of your time doing so. The fact that you respond to all your responses shows you care to reply to those who comment. So kudos to you for that. I think it will be a bit refreshing for you to spend a month just responding to others' discussions. It definitely will broaden your experience here, plus I suspect, give you more material for future discussions of your own. So happy replying and Merry Christmas!

i do have a thing about replying to all responses no matter how boring they are. mainly because i hate it when i take time to respond to non friend discussions and the person skips by mine and replies to others instead. i actually get quite hurt and do not want to do that to people that respond to mine. i hope i get lots of material! i am chomping at the bit to do a discussion!

I'm one of those that speads myself too thinly at times and neglets the most important things. I have to go fix my notifications again so I can focus on my friends rather than everybody here. I don't really start a lot of discussions so when I neglct my friends it's because I'm answering other discussions instead. Go help your mum get through the holidays...I never understood why my mom was always so miserable and witchy on holidays until I was a mom myself. Don't let too much of your row with her get to you. When we get stressed out we say things we don't entirely mean. Hugs to you and to your mum!

I usually respond to my friends' discussions, I'm not much of a starter... maybe it's because my english is not so good... Anyway, thank you for being so giving for next month, it surely means you do listen to your mum sometimes (don't woory, I won't tell) and start having a good balance from now on. I'll miss you new discussions this month!! Merry Xmas!

my testing ‘problem loading page’ file no.: tr40_1359291.mal.1750.fri.211207 Hi xboxboy. [YOUR REQUEST NO.: 1 - Do you think you are a taker or a giver?] I am not only think, but there is a proven statistical data for my saying that I am a giver. My posted discussion............. : 13 only - by percentage; (13/1640) x 100 = 0.793% My posted response............... : 13 only - by percentage; (1627/1640) x 100 = 99.207% TOTAL................................... : 1640 user rating. From that salient data, it is proven, goodsign is a GIVER in mylot. [YOUR REQUEST NO.: 2 - Do you have the perfect balance of discussions and responses?] Obviously, I am not in a perfect balance, between my discussions and responses. To date, my percentage of responses not even reach one percent (1%). Result speaks itself, xboxboy. [YOUR REQUEST NO.: 3 - do you get annoyed with people like myself who mainly start discussions?] No, and not at all. I never felt or got annoyed with people like you, who mainly started discussions. You justly nice as a ‘blood donor’ for me. Poster, for me, does really helps me a lot. Where I have so many answers to contribute to mylot community. Agree or disagree with my answers, never bothers me. As I am in an open discussion. Everybody in here on mylot, has their rights to say. As I told you, previously, in your discussion about Santa is Satan, people will only get for what they thought. If they say for YES, so that will be for their getting. Same thing if their answer is NO. [YOUR REQUEST NO.: 14- let me know your thoughts!] I have ‘disgorge’ my thought for your thinking and observation. And I am waiting for your next say about my comment to your good discussion. Thanks for providing this nice discussion, xboxboy. Right time, right place. CHeeeeeeeRS, xboxboy !!! Happy Postings and Earnings, xboxboy. HAPPY DAPPY.
