Have you made more friends or more enemies at MyLot?
October 28, 2008 3:28am CST
MyLot is a social network and its member should show professionalism, courtesy and respect for each other. However, if you've been here for quite awhile, you would have noticed by now that that's not usually the case. You might have read or perhaps participated in discussions that bitter words are being exchanged back and forth with the intent to hurt or even destroy. Star rankings could lower two notches in matter of hours or days, this is because of negative markings one imputes on his/her fellow myLotters who happened to disagree with him or her. Mine is down from nine to seven because of one discussion. What about you, have you made more friends or more enemies at MyLot? The intent of this discussion is for responders to make commitment to promote friendship rather than divisions here at myLot. It does not mean that we will not be disagreeing anymore to certain issues but we're going to do it in a nice way, i.e., we're going to attack the issue but not the person. Can I see some show of hands?

Hi there fellow mylot-er. I have made many friends here and from my point of view i have no enemies at all. I respond to people's discussions without discrimination thus treating all members like i would like them to treat me. I have had no quarrels at all with any member and have not argued with other members as i feel that we are all here to improve this community by sharing experience worldwide not by arguing because someone believes in something else.

You're absolutely correct, elitess, that we're here to improve this community by sharing different experiences from all parts of the globe. I like your attitude and may we all share the same attitude towards someone else's opinions or beliefs. Thanks for the show of hands and happy mylotting!

I believe that I have accumulated quite a lot of friends here. There are some that I might not agree with but that is just the way life is. I can't say that I have any enemies here. I don't really believe in that kind of thing. I am here to associate and make a little extra money and meet with the minds of others. There are a lot of opinions and personalities from different backgrounds.That is what makes this a great place to log onto.

Thanks for your response and I'm sorry for the delay in responding back to you. Yes, I agree with you that it's better to make friends and earn money while meeting with the minds of others. It's just that sometimes you have certain opinions that clashes with someone else and that's were unkind remarks are sometimes thrown to each other. Still, as you said, MyLot is a great place to log onto.

I have more than 190 friends now in myLot! Enemies? I don't have one in my list. There are discussions where I just voiced out what I believe and the thread starters did not feel good about it. I simply can't buy their reasoning so I simply said I disagree with them and explained why I believed otherwise. I am not sure if my stand on those discussions gained me enemies but as far as I'm concerned, I don't have any enemy here at myLot.
