As long a there are something called online buisness,there will be always be tons of people who will sign up for tons of programs.Affiliate marketing,PTC,selling ebook,etc.You can add the list on but there is one interesting question comes to my mind after reading so many response from my last discussion.That is: "Are all these online money chaser belong to a category called greedy?" I think it maybe a good time for all online marketer to think about this by themselves.If you want to response for this discussion,please tell me yourself instead of saying wwaht others people are.Thank you and I hope that your answer with honesty will help us at least in mylot.Thank you.

wildlittlefan that is rather insulting,if you think that people are necessarily greedy because they want to or mostly need to make some money than your head is someplace other than where it belongs. did you not notice that our economy here in the US is very bad right now,people are out of work, people are losing their homes or are evicted from their apartments, and we are greedy because we need money?

"Are all these online money chaser belong to a category called greedy?" Remember wildlife-fan, the word "these" meaning you are here and among us in mylot that makes you one of us online money chasers or earners. Take it easy there Hatley, i do believe he was just asking a question, not merely to insult us, otherwise, it could turn out insulting himself since he's also here to earn online. besides i think wildlife is also here to learn more english, right fan?

I don't think that it is about being greedy, I really believe it is about having the need to feel that we are stable and have what we need in life without the additional worries that come along with ensuring all goes well. Money is the root of all evil, yes this is a famous cliche, but ultimately when being perfectly honest, money is what makes the world go round and no one wants to pass up an opportunity of getting money if it is legit and accessible. If this makes us greedy, then I am very, very greedy. :)

I don't think you are really greedy because there is sure a need for ewveryone to survive and no body will ignore the reality that money do poplay an important part in our daily living.We need it for food ,transporation,clothing and etc.As long as you want it for a reasonable need ,there is not greedy and I think many online earner are just trying to make some extra money to make their life a little bit easier.Have a great day and be a great earner in mylot.

I think that a lot of people that want to earn money online are trying to earn extra money because they are having a hard time getting a job or need to earn extra money somehow because they don't earn enough from their current job. Maybe some of them are people who are lazy and want to be able to earn from home and not have work outside the home. I wouldn't mind that, sometimes the public is a little bit too hard for me to handle. But in our current times it seems that everyone has the money is money kind of attitude. Which isn't always the greatest but it is true.

Thank you for your sharing and you are telling the truth.Life is not easy and there are people whom really need that extra cash to improve their living.I think greedy is only a word to describe those who already have enough and still want more .And who will always think of money and nothing else.I think most of the online marketers are not like that.Well,since mylot is a place for discussion,it is good to raise up a topic for people to share.By looking at all these response I've got from this topic,I think it is not bad except some people mis-interpret ny question and that's not a good thing then.Well,anyway,it happen and I hope you will keep up your good work in your internet business.Have a good day.

Why would onlines earners be called greedy? They are just looking for extra income and I don't see anything wrong about that... Times are rough and people are just finding ways to earn extra during their free time... That is not a sign of greediness... Greediness is something that wanting for too much... A greedy person gets what he wants ever it takes... even if he hurts others... That is greediness... Those scammers are greedy-- not the online earning seekers...

hi dear your thinking is great, I agree with you. money is important, but money is not the life. Tks/Regards Prabha

Yes, I agree with that.money is important,but money isn't life.I don't know why there is such an opinion I have just receive that to eran money online means we are all greedy people.I think that will build up a knid of thinking that money=greedy.And we all know that it is not true.There are many people need to earn money with different purposes.For example,I lady who wants to earn more money online because she need the money to pay for the hospital bill for her mother.What she's doing is not base on greedy,she need the money with a positive purpose.I think that people are just so confuse of greedy and need in nowadays,especially when everything turns into too materalistic.i think we need to examine oursself all the times and on the other hand,we have to distinguish prople's need or greed.Thank you for your insight.I hope that you can make more money online then^_^and start from mylot first.

Hello there wildlife fan, Maybe I should asked this myself? are you greedy? why are you here in the first place Please don't generalize online money makers as Greed because as far as i can remember "NO ONE" get's really rich here unless they are pioneer members of the site and used their referral links to get more people under them and earn something from them. those people get rich but i don't entirely consider them greed. GREED for me is something that you already have and still you want more,more and more So, be careful not Generalizing online money makers as greedy or you might end being called ONE. BUt i believe scammers are the popular greed people in the internet because they lure you into this site then they earn and leave you with a broken promise, that is to earn to but they lied and that's a scam, and that's how a person is classified for me as GREEDY.

I don't think so. You will resolve the issue by asking yourself first. I am one of those who earn money online but that doesn't mean that I am greedy. I am just in need of money and I want to somehow raise my income. Greed is more on wanting too much. Have a good day.

Humans have an very tendency to prove an harder job easier coz they knew the money it would earn them.so none of them are greedy every body working online wants to make money would look out for oppurtunities coz you need to be really clever in choosing the correct one else you end wasting your time.so people are always on thie rtips to grab the oppurtunities which cannot be addressed to be greedyness.gud day.

Agree Sunny.Although your picture looks cool but your response is hot and warm as well.It is important to choose a site that can really earn money online and fall into the trap of any scam site.There are always full of great oppportunity online and as long as we are all work hard and do no harms to others.Enjoy your time online and I hope you will make good money out of it.Have a good day.

I don't think these who earn money online should be called greddy.Nobody can survive without money,the online earners just want to make some extra money at the spare time.If that be called greddy,we can obsolutely choose any other ways to make more money.

Hello wildlittlefan. Welcome to mylot. Well i cannot judge a person that easily. Since everyone's aim is to become rich and famous, we cannot deny the fact that they are kind of greedy in a good way. Though i can say that there are scam sites that really is greedy. Imagine people who work on a particular site everyday then later on realize that what they are working for is just crap. Those people with scam sites, i think they deserve to be called greedy. But to people who have business online and make good employers, i think they should set an example and continue to do business with people.

Thank you for your response.I have to clarify myself again.I am not judging others .I am jut posting a discussion for people to share about their point of view and feeling as well.By looking at all my response in this topic,I feel so many mis-understanding.I am trying to clsrify myself to all the responder and hope that they will understand .Anyway,I agree with you that the scam site really shouldn't exist in the internet world but it did.So I hope that you can be more alert on site like this and earn great money , and also enjoy your time in mylot.

I think that I have some greedy feeling inside me, and if I allow greediness to control me, then I will not prosper but always be bitter when I did something and failed. It is good not to entangle ourselves with greediness because it is not good for our dream of becoming successful. Online money earners and entrepreneurs are not all the same. Some are too greedy that they scam people staring one program after another. A few are honest and think of the welfare of their members.

Of course not, people who want to earn are not all greedy but they are desperate to have additional income. I am into earning online but I am not greedy, its just that my salary is not enough to sustain my needs and my baby. Also I am enjoying what i do here especially in mylot where I can vent out and learn things from different post.

Thank you for your response.Of course you are not doing it out of greed.You are doing it out of need and it is nothing wrong with that.Please don't get me wrong,I just want to raise up a discussion for people to hsare their opinion but some people mis-interpret by question .Anyway, earning money online is a hard work.As long as we are not posting any scam site,It is a free sky in here.Have a nice day.And say hi for me to your baby^_^

I think greedy is a heavy word to use. Maybe industrious or resourceful is better. I just want to make use of my available time at the office since I work 100% online with computers.

Greedy? Lol. No! Absolutely nope. You know what, most people who work online only earn pennies. It isn't even enough to cover the internet and electricity bills. I do not know about others but I have a full time job and it pays hundreds times more than earning online, why do you think I am here? I believe people are just doing their hobby, to socialize with others. If they are really here for the money, so what? It's an honest money. It's not that they robbing others. Try not to judge people. Good luck!

Well I would say that I am not greedy , and to add essence to this statement I am responding Honestly. All I want to say is that everyone has different perception about life and my perception is to get to a reasonable level of earnings where I would be able to sustain the present cost of living without any stress . Whenever I see that a program is either cheating me or is luring me to cheat others , I simply ignore any such invitation. Since last 3-4 months, I have been sieving the Internet to find out simple and honest means of earnings. I would be putting in more efforts to reach a threshold which I feel is satisfactory and then try to maintain that level.

Well i must tell you that, all are greedy here just coz they need money, Now let me ask you a question Why r u here. I believe you also belong to same category. as i can see your squidoo referral link in your profile. creating and responding to the discussion in mylot which pays for that. So what do you say abt that, arent you greedy. I Request you to ask a question yourself first.

Yes,I need money just like everybody does.But does it mean that if you need money and trying to work hard in order to get some more money for many purposes in life,then is greedy.I don't think so.Of course,I have already examined myself before I post this discussion and thank you for visiting my website.Affiliate marketing is a good way to earn money,just like what the banners in your profile are doing.There are people who will worship money as their god and there are people who think that they can do whatever they want with money.Frankly speaking ,I am not with them and I need money for some good and meaningful purposes and I believe that there are others who wants to earn some more money online just beacuse they want to support their family expenses ,buy soime gifts to show their love to their children,and etc.Therefore,I don't think ""all are greedy here" as you said.I would say that this is only a suggestive statement but not be fit for all.Thank's for your participation and my advice to you is that your tone of opinion can be a little bit more friendly and not with accusation next time when you join a discussion.That will help you keep more friends in mylot.Have a nice day.

not neccessarily. people like myself have money issues. as for me, my hubby lost his job in august and has not been able to find anything. he is doing odd jobs for others so that helps and so does me making money on mylot (i do work outside of the house as well as having my own at home craft business).
