I went inactive here for about 5 months due to various and assorted nonsense. I needed an outlet (and found my password), so I logged in and did a bit of cathartic posting. It felt terrific, but I guess I've offended someone, because my poor little star has begun to plummet! I haven't been this low since my piece on Jerry Falwell's death last year. I don't actually care about it, I just happened to notice it and wonder if I've gotten on the wrong side of some myLot vigilante group. Has this happened to you lately? Do you think there are people who give negative ratings because one writes something that may not strictly be a discussion?

It is now become a right of passage. If this group of people haven't targeted you, you aren't worthy of being here. When I got my star it was a 7 the very next day it was a 3. It is really sad that people think we actually care what color it is. But yeah you probably posted a comment somewhere that ruffled someones tail feathers and them and their friends - rated you until your poor little star couldn't hang straight. Don't worry about it, no one else does. And don't bother apologizing either they will just target you further and before you know it you will be a 1. Take comfort in not being alone.

Well mine has been stuck for almost a year now, after preserving and taking care of my precious ten star for a very long time. Now, here I am still stuck in a 92 reputation and haven't been moving ever since. If there are such group of people behind this, then I guess all of us should band together so we can eliminate them here and kick them out of mylot.

I'm sorry to hear that. Welcome back though. Alot of people have been complaining about this. Alot of people are losing alot of discussions they are starting also. I think someone is just going around and getting discussions deleted on purpose and they are rating us negatively just for the fun of it.

They are out there believe me. The least little things sets them off and gets our discussions deleted and our numbers going down. Most of us are having the problem and reporting them when we can. It's all part of the "fun" here on mylot..lol

Personally, I never Rate someone as negative here unless the response back on one of my discussions is way off topic, or when someone starts a New discussion in which I feel is offensive or way off mark. People who go around Rating someone as poorly just because really need to make sure they are doing so for the right reasons, as one day this could all fall back on them, and then where would they be?

Aww gg that is mince! I have enjoyed having you back and have always rated you + but there are some trolls here right now (when aren't there) who seem to take great pleasure in giving negative ratings and having discussions deleted! I for one plan to stay around and I bet we outlast them and have fun doing so - more than we can say for them! I personally haven't been affected for some reason but I do have some friends who seem to have been targeted! xxx

I have no clue. I'm terrible about giving "+" or "-" so I have no room to talk. I guess I oughtta take some time to do so, but... I barely have time to read all my friend's discussions, post anything and live my real life, with my real jobs. I grant that I only get "paid" to do one of the jobs, but I take them all seriously. This is my "fun" and that I make a few cents on it, is just a plus to posting here.
