I had just responded to an interesting discussion about how this user had clicked into her CTP site to findthatthe site wanted to get five dollars from each user to stay in business. okay so far so good,then a responder commented with a link to his favorite PTC spot. I notified him that he had just pulled a nono with that link and would possibly cause the whole discussion to be deleted because of his comment. why do people still do this? the rule has been talked about ad nauseam for weeks on here. Your input please?

It's worse at the weekends too. Most but not all of them who do it are kids off school I guess. Some take the warning seriously others give you a lot of mouth. I hope this is not a sign of the world our kids will have in their future as it is generalised too and not from one particular country's users. Sad that's how I sum it up

These guys don't read the terms maybe? Or may be they love to get other's discussions deleted? God only knows!!!

[i]Hi Hatley, I have encountered a lot of post about it, I guess they don't care if it will be deleted as long as they will get responses and interest from other people or members about their sites without thinking that they are leading those members to be deducted when post will be deleted! ANyway, I guess they are the type of people who have no patience here and just making this site as a venue to recruite members[/i]!

hi checapricorn Inotherwords they are just using us, they could care less about mylot itself, just their moneymaking sites and getting referrals. shame on them.

Wow its been a while sense I read the terms. But I do fell it would be unjust to delete the hole discussion. What would be the point of that. My lot would only be harming them self too would they not. Because it is not everyone elses issuse to be punished for. There for mylot may actly be chaseing people away from theyre web site. Im sure no one wants to have what little change they make on here taken away. And Some people Im sure would stop useing mylot if that did happen to them.

hunandi but mylot expects us to read the rules and thus we' would not be making discussions to be deleted so we do bring it on ourselves if we do not pay attention to the rules.

Because some people are ignoramuses?? I think that's the reason, plain and simple!

I'm not sure why people do this. It gets our posts deleted and we lose points and earnings. All of know that is a definite no-no here at Mylot. some people just don't care though or pay attention.

Hi Patsie, I am not sure which discussion you were referring to and I confess I am not all that interested. Regardless, did that person post the referral link out of context? If yes, well, maybe he doesn't know the "rule" (perfectly possible since at some other places, referral links are liberally allowed) or he just wants to try get some money for himself. Never begrudge someone his livelihood. Yet hang on. Who says it is not allowed? If he has posted in context - like when someone was asking where he can buy a new pot for cooking and he posts his amazon affiliate link to a particular pot, that is perfectly allowed. I can't find the "proof" (can't remember where it was conveyed to me) but as long as it is in context, myLot has clarified that it is fine with them. They just don't like it when someone keeps posting about his referral links when it is irrelevant to the discussion in question. Lastly, I doubt the entire discussion will be deleted because of one link. The whole discussion might only be gone if it is far less effort to delete it than the individual postings because too many flouted rules. I have seen individual postings removed while the discussion stays intact. Perfectly possible. Cheers!

Hey Hatley, I don't know why some people just refuse to adhere to the rules that mylot sets forth. I'm not sure if they are just ignorant or they just don't care or they just don't believe that mylot will delete the discussion. Sadly, those of us who have been here and seen it happen know that mylot will do just that. There are just some people who don't get it and who never will. And it's people like that who make it bad for people like us who take care not to break the rules because we have seen what happens when someone does. The problem is that those of us who do follow the rules are forced to pay the price for those who do not and that is the part that isn't fair. I truly don't know how we are supposed to get through to those who just don't and won't get it no matter how many times they are told over and over again.

hi opal yes I don't know how many I have told since i 'started here you are breaking mylot rules and they simply will not listen or do not care, I don't know which it is but they make us lose points, and that I do resent.

I think plain and simple many people don't read the guidelines and this is especially true with newbies. I remember one person who left his referral link to at least a dozen discussions....he gave no input to the discussion he was replying to just leaving his referral links. One of the reasons I now do that warning thing in my replies or when I do discussions is so people will know its NOT a referral link...But yes as far as when a person does leave a referral link...it should be that only that response is deleted rather than the whole discussion as that really isn't fair either...like why should the whole discussion be deleted when it's only one offending person leaving a referral link?

hi pyewacket I have said that too, why trash my discussion because a jerk used me to advance his referrals with a no no referral link? they never have anything to say about the' dicussion they responded to at all.
