earnings dropped.. a discussion deleted?????

July 23, 2008 7:11am CST
My earnings have dropped from 9.66 to 9.61 now i am not bothered by just 5 cents BUT its the reason as to why, and its a very unfair reason i feel. I know all discussions i have replied to have not been violating mylot rules and the responses i have done also have not violated any rules Now.. please tell me, if someone responds to a discussion that DOES violate the rules, does this mean the person that made the discussion also suffers due to one response? by the whole discussion along with all responses is deleted? Because that would be very unfair to the discussion and all others that responded.. So if someone responds to a discussion with a referral link, would he be coursing the whole discussion to be deleted?

Yup, Unfortunately this is how it works. It really does seem unfair. Especially if you put a lot of time and effort into a response. Sometimes you violate the rules without knowing it. When I first started here I didn't read the rules and saw other people posting referral links so I did the same. I got warned by mylot and the discussion was deleted. This is why many of the seasoned mylotters will not respond to threads with things in them that violate mylots terms of service. Bascially the whole discussion along with any earnings acrued is deleted. I do think it is unfair but it serves a purpose. It makes mylotters discourage such behavavior for themselves and in others. If these people don't receive responses then they will not really continue to post. This is a community and we all have to our part to keep it happy and safe. Don't worry too much though In my experience it really doesn't happen a lot. I think Its happened to me maybe once or twice. Its kinda odd that you mention this because my earnings actually just went up. I was wondering why that happened. but I won't complain. happy Mylotting... Don't forget to look out for those discussions started by rule breakers.

i never respond to a discussion with referral link.. i find out this is breaking the rules by a response to it.. Only links i ever posted is a normal legit site to back up what i was saying to help with a problem she had with stretch marks.. and other links only, have been with youtube when someone wanted selection of music anyway i would just like to understand why so i know. Iwill go through the rules but i have feeling i still be none the wiser lol I not worries really.. i would be little annoyed though if a whole discussions get deleted because of 1 rule breaker.. i dont think i like this user rating system.. can someone give a negative rating to a response if not like the answer.. as i can not agree with someone if i dont, but id always give a reason as to why i dont agree.. And we all entitled to our own opinions.
