i have one friend in my list that i boycott her discussions. i check almost all my post who gathered many respond and i found no post from here. every post she did i always respond to it. it's really unfair to have friend like here. i love her post but i only read it and leave, i never respond to her discussions. my next move is to turn off her email notification so i can no longer receive any notice from her post. Did you have friends like this? how did you manage if they do similar to the friends i mention?

Well, I do read all of your discussions, but some I just don't know anything about so I cannot respond. For example, you asked if anyone has been paid by clixncash. I am not a member there, so I would not know how to respond. Coke or Pepsi? I don't drink either one so I would not know how to respond to that one either. Now I DO use deodorant everyday, but that discussion must have slipped by me. Lol! So I will be responding to that one soon, but for now I have to go to work and I'll be at a religious convention all weekend, so....see you monday! I hope I wasn't the friend you were talking about!

I can not answer each and every discussion that comes through my emails either with close to 400 friends. But I do answer those that interest me and I haven't had a friend yet on my list that I could not find at least one discussion that I responded to. it is a lot of work. Plus there are some members that only start discussions all the time as well as those that only respond. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

July, you are right in your thinking. I also do like-wise, when I find that someone does not respond to any of my discussions, I simply turn the notification 'off' for him/her and if it continues till few months, I show no hesitation in removing his/her name. I think, when someone has sent me a request for adding him/her as a friend, he/she should be active in my discussions and vice versa. Have a nice day!

Like I said I take care as which friends I approve on MyLot and I do delete them from time to time and it is funny that you bring up this discussion today 'cause that is just what I spent time doing this morning. Yes it is unfair and if you don't know the person personally I would probably do the same thing. HOWEVER there are friends of mine who just post... I know they just post and I respond to their discussions because they are of interest to me. Thanks Zelo

As of now, I haven't deleted anyone or turned off their notifications. I don't really care if a single friend hasn't answered or responded on my discussions. I have more good friends, who has been regularly contributing on my discussions. And in return, I do contribute on theirs too. Happy posting.

If you say that by turning off email notifications is one way to boycott a friend, well I did. It doesn't mean that I don't want him/her to be friend anymore, but it you find that you can't relate to his/her discussions anymore, you can do it. For once, I turned on all notifications. But now, I just select them which I feel is more worthy of my time...

I feel that if a friend is a real friend then they understand it is not possible to respond everywhere. I have no bad feeling if my friends on here do not respond and I hope they are the same about me. I heve never deleted friends from my list or turned off notifications. That's just my way of thinking but obviously we are all different happy posting!

Hello julyteen, well I hope you have not yet boycotted me, LOL. I sure am trying my best and trying to answer everyone's comments & discussions but it ain't easy. So I just give my best shot for the day. It's not helping that the system is lagging most of the time & my site work is taking up most times of the day. Please bear with me for a while more. I enjoy your discussions, really and hope to participate more in future.

Hope that is not me you are boycotting, lol. I hope friends of mine don't get offended if I don't always respond to their discussions as I am really busy lately and I am often not in here. I have only responded to a couple of discussions lately. I really hope that friends will understand and know that I still care even if I am not replying to thier discussions all the time. Try not to be offended my friend, she may have good reason why she does not respond, she could be really busy.

I will never boycott anybody here in my lot. They will response on my post or not it's up to them. I will not hold it againts them. If they will rate me negative until all my star rating gone, I don't care. I'm enjoying my lot and that is all that matters to me. Here, i treat everybody as friends.

I never boycotted a friend on myLot. If our relationship here wasn't fair, I just removed that friend from my list and that's that! I don't really mind if my friends don't respond my discussions, I'm used to that - I barely get any response at all... I like it when my friends start lots of discussions because I have where to choose from, and responding many discussions gets me more money. If I get few responses, at least I get money for responding more.

No, I have never boycotted a friend on mylot. People should not feel obligated to respond to anyone here. I try and respond to who I can, when I can. I read many discussions here that I don't respond to because I don't have anything additional to add or I just don't know anything about the topic. Most of my mylot "friends" don't reply to my discussions, but there are a few that do. I am fine with the arrangement.

Everyone here should have their own method of posting and should do what they are comfortable with, not what their friends are comfortable with. If you don't like her methods you can just delete her from your friends list, if she's really a friend you should accept that she just has a lot of things that she wants to share but maybe not enough time to respond to all of her friends all of the time. I know I keep my friends list somewhat paired down but I can not get to every discussion my friends start. Probably there are people on my list that I rarely respond to...but there are also plenty I don't hear from either. I know many of us are busy so I don't worry about it.

in my opinion, i guess it is our right to post or respond on some of the discussions that we wanted. even if they're on our friends list or not. it's ok for me if he/she doesn't drop by on my discussions, i just think that my discussions does not suit for him/her, either he/she doesn't like it or he/she just can't relate to it. just my thoughts

I am doing that right now... i am boycotting one member in my friends list... since this person starts like tons of discussions a day... but never comment on even one of the response... i know that commenting to responses is not an obligation... but that is a sign of appreciation... there is no need to comment of all response... as long as she would in one or two or three...

I would not boycott friends for not posting and I think it would extremely unfair to do so. A lot of us get may friend requests and we add them into our lists, thereby increasing the number of our friends. If one does not respond one of the others will . In any case we are here to have a good time and boycotting friends will not help.

I love checking out the discussions started by friends. I may not make a comment on all I check because some of the things may not interest me or pertain to me. I often read discussions that, from the topic, seem like something I'd like, but then, when I read the entire discussion, if it doesn't really tug at me,I don't respond. I don't really think a friend just deliberately won't respond. Perhaps your topics haven't interested her yet. I doubt that every friend I have has posted on my discussions, but then, I don't really keep up with that. I'm just happy to have anyone to post to them.

no i never try to do that... i just want to have fun and make friends here... so i really take it easy and i don't really care if people in my friend's list respond to my discussions or not... in fact, most of them don't respond as i never receive many responses for my discussions... but i don't really care and i don't want to expect too much from here... it is expectations that our friends will do something in return for what we had done to them that make us hurt... and i don't want that... i stop expecting from people and that makes my life happier... take care and have a nice day...

To be honest with you I have many friends on my list and a lot of them do not answer posts of mine, but it does not really bother me too much. It is not something that I think of but I can understand you being a bit miffed by it. I too always try and answer as many posts as I can and have all my notifications turned on but I cannot always answer them all.

I have not tried it, but I've been boycotted, I just say fine let them. It says a lot of you are 'boycotted' or basically told in kindergarden fashion "you don't play like I want, I take my ball and go sit in corner somewhere, and you can't have any". Tch! About the whole boycotting situation, I'll do what I want, they'll do what they want. Anyways, some people have numerous active people on friends list so not everyone can be responded to all at once. People also have different schedules. For example, my schedule become more strained only helped by this big weekend. If you don't like how a friend is acting, you have every right to ignore them or drop them. Before you do however, take a good look at the entire situation. Also, try seeing it from the perspective of the other person.
