Mylot doesn't even look the ratings if it violates some of their guidelines. Maybe someone have reported it to the mylot using the report button and when the mylot's moderators will checkthe discussion for the violations. They will delete it if they find any violations......

fair play but how does that still leave it as a top topic

because its the raings that makes it to the top discussions. Maybe all liked the discussion and rated it positively and a few found the violation and reported it. So as it is one of the most rated one(or most commented) and no other discussion as reted as that, its still in the top discussions.

Don't think for a second that it couldn't be deleted. MyLot will delete discussions if they violate MyLot rules of conduct, contain very offensive material, as stated in the rules and regulations.. Take a look at them yourself. We have all had responses deleted from here before. It's a learning process. And once you understand what is ans is not allowed here, which isn't really much, you can prevent it from happening again.

i understand that but the real question is how if your topic is deleted it can be voted top thread for the day

??? Your guess is as good as mine on this. Perhaps the system that chooses top threaded discussions is an automated one. When MyLot staff gets a hold of it it may be a different story. I'd contact the support team and ask if I were you.
