Grown Up Tattle Tales?

November 4, 2008 1:11am CST
Hi. I've been here at myLot for exactly a week today. As I go from discussion to discussion I have noticed that, here and there, are these friendly folks who like to point out what other myLotters are doing to break the rules. One of these "do gooders" interuppted a perfectly good discussion to inform us that we were breaking myLot guidelines regarding giving too much personal information about ourselves. The discussion was about names, and a few people told their first name. Just a few minutes ago I saw another "do gooder" tell the person who started the discussion to stop posting the same question over and over. I went to the profile of the mylotter who began the discussion and he/she had done no such thing! Could it be that these "do gooders" were not breast fed long enough? Perhaps they were forced into potty training too quickly. I suspect they were little tattle tales who just grew up to be big tattle tales!! Why else would they, as adults, feel the need to tell other adults they are breaking the rules? Any thoughts on this matter? PS) I may regret starting this discussion, but I could not resist!!

I have been here for about 3 days now and i have come across such people it is at the very least irritating. There would be a nice flow in a discussion and as you kindly stated these "grown up tattle tales" pip in about how such and such you are breaking a rule... or saying .. you are spamming... well clearly if a person is spamming other mylotters ignore him/her... no need to state the obvious.. sometimes i swear i hear a nasal sort of voice in my head when i read the post of these wanna be goodie two shoes. It is not here only, but rather you will find this on almost any forum if you spend enough time on it. But the good news is that in comparison to other discussion forums the percentage of these people isnt as high. Because most know that useless posts will cut into their earnings so =P to them lol

There is another kind of them...'advice giver' with this I mean those, who give advice on how to use mylot and how to start a discussion and how not to abuse and throw everyone into the same basket, even if the topis is on cooking LOL What does that have with cooking I do no know. Why I mind them? Because I never started silly discussion, oneliner or whatever so I didnt need that advice, but because I was new they asummed I was breaking rules and needed to be thought. And that is not being friendly, but patronising! :)

Haven't come across any "advice givers" yet, but I'm sure I will now! lol I could understand if someone asks for help, but just to give it is pretty rude. What would some of these people be like as parents? OMG!! Thanks for responding. Have a great one!
