LOL it was my fault! wahehehe... i advertised myLot so much that i guess members of that site got tired of me and decided to kick me out! ^__^;; yeah, there's no wrong with advertising a site but i advertised myLot under a completely different forum topic! wari, wari. (my bad, my bad.) and the site said that's a violation of the rules. oh well, at least i experienced being banned. LOL

Sorry to hear that you were banned from a site you obviously enjoyed. I also respect the fact you have a sense of humor and can joke about it...good for you!!!! I can appreciate how the site feels though...when the big Yewie announcements hit here a few months ago I was absolutely fed up with all the referrals I received and discussion after discussion being posted about Yewie...Yewie...Yewie...that I finally said...Yewie Patootie...give Mylot members a break and go there and leave the rest of who are happy here alone. So if members felt like I did in that dynamic I can certainly empathisize with the site's position. Having said that I am really happy that you were promoting Mylot rather than trying to draw members away to go somewhere else. You are a vaued member here...and I am glad you are staying...because I for one and I am sure many others appreciate you! Happy new year...and continued happy Mylotting! Raia

At least we're glad you're still with us, Mylot wouldn't be the same without you.

weird. why would yahoo remove your questions if they are affiliated with myLot? and aside from that, yahoo and myLot are very different from each other. 0_o

I know they are "different" but when i was using mylot before i took my break, There was a memo out that yahoo BOUGHT mylot. So if i remember correctly anyways, yahoo owns/runs mylot. Maybe if we search discussions we could find out for sure. Well i guess all i could find was this: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/624308.aspx That doesn't really say they were bought. . But they must be affiliated somehow, but they sure did delete my questions about joining mylot, along with my referal URL ;)

they probably are affiliates since there's a yahoo search icon above. I looked at the site you gave and it really shows that myLot and yahoo are connected. now its really odd why yahoo deleted your referral link while in fact, they are supporting myLot. 0_o

it seems that u actually had surpassed all their limitation of tolerance that is why they actually kicked you out. but i would also like to mention here that it would also had been good for you as u had till been kicked out had made a lot of members for this mylot. so no need to worry try some different forum or just any other networking site which i thing you had proably started also.

i shopkaro! ^__^ i'm not really worried you know. and i don't know if i got any referrals there. LOL maybe i did, maybe i didn't. ^__^;; at that time i was already planning to leave that site. i wasn't enjoying. i just checked it out because one of my friends invited me there.

I do think the site should give a warning when i comes to deleting someone email account you could only imagine all the important things I had in my email and there all lost !!! No warning just deleted that wasnt fair i dont think

And you would be banned from mylot if you did the same thing here, I am sure. You can't be promoting one foum in another forum. I think this is not fair to the forum you are in. They need to make a living, too, and this is a business to them. Oh well, I think you learned your lesson. lol I have done the same thing in another forum so don't feel too badly. I'm sure a lot of people have done the same.

Oh you naughty naughty girl you! For shame! LOL! Just kidding. If some of these sites could just get past that kind of thing and see what kind of business it's bringing them, I don't think they would be so stuffy about it. But until they come to that realization, I guess all of us poor pawns will have to be on our toes and very careful. Sheesh! How boring is that? Teeheehee!

No big surprise, mylot says they will delete the same kind of discussions about other sites and ban members that try to promote another social network.

Hello dear secret bear friend. Reading this discussion of yours, it made me laugh about the experience that you have had out of the goodwill of promoting Mylot to more users at other sites to our commmon community. Thanks for sharing your experience being banned. lol.
