Trolls may have come back and rating us down....

Philippines
September 23, 2009 6:35am CST
I wasn't online most of the day because i was building my new kitten a house since it's been raining outside and it's only now that i went back online.. but something's not right, actually I've had this feeling since a few days ago. Well, I am not sure but it seems that the trolls have come back and doing this "rate them down" strategy on all active mylotters. well, not every one. This is what i just notice for myself. first, dbutheking, then Lamby and now me, I notced Jamestnip lost a lot too...my friends are loosing their stars, this isn't good. some one's gone back and i think it's rating us down. I don't what they're problem is but i can only give this message. "Get a Life" It's either am actually seeing things red or i am seeing my friends turning red from the blue and from few numbers down to lower numbers in their reputations.I am not saying we should bother ourselves with but am just telling you, some thing ain't right is happening..

Hi Letran! I too have noticed and it has happened to many more other than the ones you mention. Maybe it is not because of trolls but just some levelling out because as the response says above, new users cannnot rate now. If there are some really drastic drops we can contact admin about them.

hi buddy. i have told you before, that i crave for a blue star. since i reached this red for more than a year now, it stays with me and looks like it loves to be beside lapu-lapu forever. lol so be it, if it wants it there. i actually don't get bothered any color i have as i guess it won't affect my participation. what i really hate is when i have no internet, and you can see me from there, bothered and can't be talked by anyone. lol just like now, i can connect but will be cut off, then back on again, reconnecting, and gone again, grrrrrrrr.

hi jhelai. it's been a while since the last time i saw you. it's not actually a line with a postpaid subscription, but only a prepaid subscription that can connect to the internet. you know here, every network company now offers internet broadband and mobile internet in cheap service fees. i just don't have any idea now how this thing is happening to me now. but in some other locations, say in the neighboring city, i can connect without problems and fast.

hello, neilc, well i do remember that i may have said harse things and this was the consequences of that wrong doing. i guess in your case, the internet is the problem, at least you're not being hammered at your reputation, i have actually rated you and so far so good. i hope others will do it too. have a great day

hey, what's up. you may have been right about that or simply it's was just a major glitch due to the my-lot upgrade. you know i was almost eighty one (81) last night now i went and slide down to seventy six (76). it's either a glitch or some one is messing around with our reputations. i really didn't but i wonder how can my points drop that fast as i didn't even say anything bad here. definitely something is wrong

As far as I know, I haven't said anything bad to anyone either, but my rating dropped 13 points overnight. My friends on here have helped restore my red star, but I was on the verge of going to a blue star before this happened. I don't think I'll get that high again, at least not any time soon.

I started a discussion about this the other day. My rating dropped 13 points literally overnight. I had a red star with a 94 rating when I went to bed, and I awoke to a yellow star with a rating of 81! Fortunately, my friends on here banned together and helped restore my red star, but I have noticed a bunch of people have gone down in ratings. I agree that something does not seem right about it.

you didn't this has something to do with the Maintenance the other night. It's really scary to assume that there's a group there that actually tries to rate us down. am helping a friend too but there's another one who lost a a few points as well.

I don't know. Maybe I'm buying into the whole "conspiracy theory", but Hexeduser22 responded to my discussion the other day, which is the one he referenced in the previous response. At that time, my star had already gone down, but his hadn't. Then, after responding to my discussion, he said that his star dropped, too. That wouldn't be due to any maintenance by myLot, and it seems rather suspicious to me.

My star just turned red again. I lost 2 points in my rating, and I have really no idea why.. I have tried not to respond to controversial discussions, and to discussions about other online money making sites cause I know they would be deleted eventually.. hmmm.. It's the first time my rating went down and I have no idea why..
• Philippines
24 Sep 09
That's RIGHT! you see even the responder above you as well, she lost almost five points last night. this is what am so upset about that's why i created this discussion as an awareness to the others. there's a chance that it could have been something like the topics being deleted......but am still not sure..just letting every one know that their stars went down.

eh, don't worry yourself over it, Letran. It's just a rating after all. We know you guys are '10' no matter what. Mylot should never have come up with this star system cause it just gives more ammo for the trolls.

I agree but not just trollers but also other users from mylot who simply seeks revenge for merely rating us down. i believe for the moment i should stay away from serious discussion, more precisely Politics. yes, before it was insults but now it has something to do with the ratings. some times i fear if there's a troll that has made to more 200+ post.

Those "trolls" will eventually get what's coming to them, in my opinion. I don't think you should worry about it; understand that a thing called "karmic retribution" exists; what comes around goes around. Their stupidity and.. annoying agendas will eventually get the better of them. I can't imagine why anyone would want to do something like that. What a time-waster! They certainly aren't making any MONEY off of that, and I cant' imagine that a thing like that is fun to do..But whatever. I definitely agree with you - "get a life", is right! I mean who has enough time to do stuff like this, anyway? And what exactly do they gain out of it? At any rate, I think MyLot's admin will eventually take care of them, and their accounts will be deleted or disabled or something of that sort, and we won't have to worry about it anymore. Just give it time.

I feel that the Dark Age's is coming back, you know this has almost happened last year and a couple of months back. but probably i shouldn't complain that much since the rating system has been limited but seeing others loosing one or more points in the star makes me wonder of these secret alliances on the other side of the fence..

I wonder if it is trolls or just other users in general. There is not a great deal we can do about it I guess. It is shame that some would negative rate just out of spite. I keep hoping that not be the case but what the heck can you do? It seems to be the same old story...

well, this is one old story that surely i don't want to bring back or ever experienced again. but am glad it isn't that bad compare before but luckily you're not that affected. I wouldn't really complain if it was just me but even the lamb lost a few points too, he's turned red from the Blue.

Letran- I have simply given up on all hope of being rated where you are at dear friend. Most of my negative rating came when I openly expressed my political views early on during my time on Mylot. Some people simply cannot deal with someone else disagreeing with them. I do not consider those people trolls, some are actually friends, but at times our own passions can lead us to rank someone negatively before thinking about what we are actually doing. I would not concern yourself with trolls, stalkers, mean spirited people, or the like. They are not worth your time or anyone else's time for the matter. You have some wonderfully provacative pieces on Mylot and that is where you should stay focused. I think it is wonderful that you and others have chosen your duty as Guardians and have taken it to heart, but fear not for we have faith. Those of us that have been around long enough know the Truth. I myself have not been around but 8-9 months, but somne of my friends have been here for years and I know if they can weather the shifty waters so can I. And as another person once said, I believe it was Mike, your star ranking doesn't prove you can write or not write. The lower the star may very well show that you have the ability to get people thinking. I tend to agree with him on this. Have a lovely day dear friend. Namaste-Anora

there are no other words to express than thank you in your kind words Anora, i don't know if you remember but i was Greeneagle 24 before and that reputation on that account was carnage by people who didn't like my tone of discussion or topics. in the end i got chance to find out that the star has affected my earnings and it's too risky to have bigger enemies, oh, my i almost fell down from the chair thank you again...

i have my fair share of losing my points/posts and even my star rating... well, i was affected at first but not this time. i don't want to cultivate that kind of ill-feeling. who ever pulled my rating down or deducted on e from my posts total, thanks! at least i know that gives my write ups time. as long as i make my ideas clear with whatever topic i respond to and received an affirmation from the discussion's author... i am fine. let's have a happy mylotting day friends!

That's so sad blueGoblin. you don't deserve to be rated down just because you're so different in your response. well, as long as you're not insulting other people or calling them words. well, try not to create a sense of humor out of serious topics like politics, i believe that's how i got rated down there.

Someone rated me down yesterday and I think I got it when I had responded to the same topic as this. I just got back up today I hope those were not trolls that gave me a negative rating. I said it yesterday and I'll say it again today "stop the freaking crab mentality and be mature!" Happy mylotting guys and enjoy:)

It's actually worse if it's not the trolls, what if one of them was in your friends-list and did that sort of thing. i agree, they should just be mature and learn to accept the fact.but i know there are those who continue to maliciously abuse us.

I have been here for a long time. Permit me to tell you my experience on Mylot. It comes and goes in cycles. Ever so often be it through a glitch in Mylot or some mean spirited members some people are loosing ratings. Then the discussions about trolls start. People are berating trolls, getting angry over little red or blue stars and in some cases accusing other people of being trolls. In the past this has led to some nasty discussions and even banishments from Mylot. It is my view if trolls are totally ignored all the fun is taken away from them. So let it be.

I think there are some people in myLot who really don't like someone going up & hence rates you down. May be that person will be good to others but may don't like you because you might have told something in their discussions. Also it might be because somebody else might not like your discussion & they might have a habit of rating down those discussions they don't like. But I think friends can always help because I always try to support my friends so negative rating my friends is out of question. I believe we all have the power to rise again if we fall down. so I never worry about trolls. Happy Lotting

I remember just one good old former my-lot friend who really showed that i wasn't a nice lotter to him. i was shocked at first but i did let it go, until he lost his account. i feel bad, i didn't know his problem then. probably i should stop worrying about trolls.
