Do you get wired messages on Yuwie or other social networking sites?

This is the message I get today: “Join this site. (site name) It is the same as yuwie but you can do what you like. You can post all those sexy pixs of yours Enjoy.” OK, I don’t have sexy pixs, I don’t need to have sexy pixs, I don’t have desire to post any. Second crazy friend request: “Hi Gorgeous, add me baby and let’s chat soon..” I am not his baby…no way…and naked torso? Give me a break… Can people think before they say anything?

I've been at Yuwie for 6 months and you know me there as Noot54 which used to be my handle on mylot, too, till they got sick of me pushing Yuwie. I get all sorts of rubbish messages but basically I just ignore them. I make great use of the delete button - it's my greatest privilege! After 6 months it's making me about $30 a month but that's not my main reason for being there. I get to promote my novels and short stories and sales have gone through the roof!

I see. I met nice people on Yuwie, but also I get bad virus that crashed my computer. I wasn't much on Yuwie for the last 2 months, but it looks like my referrals are growing without my effort and I like it...lol

hahahaha naked torso 'eh? The word topless won't do? OMG. You make me laugh so hard which is a good thing. Of course I am a guy so I get the reverse messages... join this site and see hundreds of girls from your area la la la. I actually got an invitation from someone here at MyLot... DID NOT appreciate that at all.

Nothing like that. Just today I was on my blog fixing some posts. I was publishing my post when a box appeared on each attempt. This box was asking me to enter userID and password I am using on Yuwie. I wasn't even on Yuwie! I ignored this box and deleted Yuwie banner that I was promoting on my blog. I never see this box again. There is another post here about the same problem, I'll give you the link.

well they dont need to be on a public domain like here or yowie . Seems to me like they need to stay on the one they are in if they want to do all this sounds like a try to pick you up thing and I would try to cancel him out.

The "sexy" pictures are just a lure for people to cick on their page and give them page views. The more sexy pictures they have on their page, the more their pages and pictures get viewed...and the more they earn. If you check out some of the people on the sites, you'll find a lot of guys have a scantily-clad women as their avatar and have pictures of the same girl in a bikini on their page. Thenyou look over and the perosn is a 25 yo male...LOL Anything to make a couple extra cents.

He was promoting new site that I am not going to join. I reply that I am happy on Yuwie and Mylot.... I have no need to place my (sexy and not sexy)pictures all over internet...

I was so turned off by the Yewie craze here a number of months ago that I want nothing to do with it...or any other site other than Mylot. It is all I can do to keep things current here. I am amazed at how people flip/flop all over the place. Maybe the message came from just that. People are distracted and unfocused because their attention is here..there and everywhere. People in our busy world are not thinking before they speak in a lot of situations. Perhaps we all need to slow down a little...and focus...take a deeeeeeep breath or two....ahhh I feel better already! (chuckles) Raia

LOL I Know what you mean. That is why I don't go much for the social network thing. I know , I am here , but I myLot feels different to me . I usually don't even bother to respond to some of the messages because like you it feels to me that people really don't think before they write.

Sounds like a site to miss. And there is no such thing of a sexy picture of me. You could reply with that apple avatar picture you used to use. It worked for eve. Lol.

I don't even pay attention about the site he was talking about, but it is not site for me. I am happy on Mylot and Yuwie and I am not looking for more. I don't have time for more anyway....
