I know that it is very difficult to come up with topics to start new discussions and I strongly believe that some mylotters are coming with tailor made stories to get more responses which means more chances to leave comments and it implies more earnings for the one who started the discussion.I dont want point any one coz i want to play it safe.Have you ever responded to a discussion which meant to be created for responses which deals with an non-existent problem asking for your opinion?

Hi sunnycool! I can never tell which tailor discussions are tailor made stories and so which are true on them. But one thing is for sure. I love to respond on any topic that interest me. As long as I have to say, I'll go on it. It will not matter if that discussion is a lie, would it? Its their own prerogative anyway.

hi yan,i love responding and make few cents as well but it looks as if they are making fool out of us and guess what as soon as the first one gets some responses they come up with the continuation of it and the ones who responded to the first one goes for this too.one can easily find out if they are true story or their friends or an complete bluff one.If at all i had to start to those kind then i would have ended up with few hundred discussions to my count and i have many stories to come up with.gud day Van.

Well, I think that all discussions are made to get responses, but I don't think I have ever encountered one that had a fake story or non-existent problem. I believe that most of the discussions that are started on myLot are true, and if the person had made a untrue story, then I probably would not know.

See, I knew there would be some untrue discussions out there, but I (hopefully) did not respond to one that was really fake. . .

hi merlinscora,i have responded to those upto four of these kind of BS stories where they have provided an critical case and asking others for help to get him out of the situation and hence i have started this and i have observed that once he had enough responses he goes for the other one stating he is out of the problem and he is happy now and conveying regards to mylotters for their suggestions. They must be really crazy doing this but its not fare to play to do so.

I believe, well so far anyway that the discussions put up are not fake. I have read each discussion carefully and noticed that the authour put quite some thought into their discussion. so no, not yet anyway. I hope that i do not come across something which is fake, and if i do, mind you i will notice and just not respond entirely. I don't know about the other mylotters, but i only respond to the discussions that are meaningful.

Possibly some discussions are created just to receive more attention and I guess there is nothing wrong with that unless it is just so wild that it would be an impossible situation. What I find sad is when young users come and post discussions about things that happen in their lives and speak as though they were adults with a family. THAT is wrong IMO.

There were users who were 'very tough' when responding but they are not posting much these days. Or I have not noticed them. Maybe I am in the wrong places.

Hi Diana, I am not very good with abbreviations. :( What is IMO? and I really didnt understand that bit. Can you elaborate a bit without specifically referring to any individual? That way, if I am crossing any boundaries, I will check myself in time.

Vandana sorry for posting something that not all understand. IMO = in my opinion. I was referring to those discussions posted, just for the sake of earning, by younger users talking about problems that they could not possibly have come across yet. Having a hard time giving birth for a youth (male) of 21 is impossible even in this day and age. Some just either invent things or copy stuff from elsewhere

What about if someone starts a discussion, he will need to press a button before posting it? What about? Is this discussion a LIE? YES or NO?

People are so innovative to think of many ways in order gain more responses to earn. It's their call and they are responsible for their actions. whatever is their purpose aside from earning much (because theirs will getting more responses) they're answerable to it. All discussions are meant to be responded in whatever ways it can. Now it's up to us to discern and assess whether it's fake, true, or just making fun of anybody and of us too. along the discussion you can find the sincerity of the the who who started it and will be able to know if this is real or fake!

hi MSF it really doesnt bother ha even if he had created an discussion out of an non-existent problem in other words they are showing their writing skills and we tend to believe them and go on responding as if someone life is at stake LOL.but i just wanted to know what others think about these kind of discussions and most of them seem to have no problem with those and if they are the most responded discussions then i have my newspaper which helps me to come up with deadly incidents . gud day MSF.

when i first see the title of this discussion-- i thought that this is one of your "stupid discussion" the one that you are referring too that i need to respond the silliest and stupidiest response that i can. OF COURSE DISCUSSIONS ARE CREATED TO GET RESPONSE. i already have crazy thoughts in mind in answering this but as i go through your discussion-- it changed my ideas. that's why i responded with that i wrote above. of course there's no problem, whatever discussions they may have, it's our prerogative to respond. if it's not appealing to us then just ignore it. nobody will force us to respond---only ME hahahahaha who encourage you to check on my profile and respond on to my few discussions hehehehehe!

oh gosh i dont think this discussion is the silliest of all my started ones and if you could take some time and go through the other responses as well i am not the single one who feel that those kind are started to draw only attention using others problems. Whats up with the title Do U think "Some" discussions are being created (making stories out of someone else life issues) which is not great.hope you got the point. I could have named also named it "Do u come up with discussions to get more responses" and this one would be the silliest of all my discussions.

I daresay there are fictitious stories set up for discussion but i wouldn't seethat as a problem unless someone was trying to scam money for some non-existent charity or otherwise tricking people. I admire some of the more creative writers. I'd rather discuss hypothetical situations than constantly be asked my favourite colour/fruit/film or whether I made payout. At least someone has put a bit of effort into thinking up the story

not many would think in your way wizzy coz some might think that they are making fun or utilising their friends serious issue to make money.I am not offending those who realy want to get some advice butsome are there who create c*ck and bull stories and try to show their talent.Thank you for responding.gud day.
@Wizzywig (7860)

Utilising a friends problems to make money from a discussion is totally despicable and I have left comments to that effect on discussions before. I was thinking more in terms of the "what if" humorous discussions. If people have real problems of their own and are looking for serious advice they should receive it.
@sunnycool (12737)

yeah you are right and i agree with you and we can easily understand by going through the discussion if they are really true or not and the real ones should be responded so we can help them out.gud day.

I do think about the fact that the discussion are just created based on fiction but then again, who knows if the discussions are really based on actual issues? So unless it is to an extreme side that you can tell by the content of the discussion being a fake one, else I think giving a response to it is not a bad idea. Cheers

yeah there is nothing wrong in responding these kind of discussions asking for help and what if the same person start discussions asking for help every alternate days dont you think there is some thing fishy and he is doing just for responses.I never came accross a single person being in so many critical situations that too every alternate days LOl.Its upto you to decide if that are true or not.Thank you for responding WArvial.Gud day.

I have no doubt that there are some who post discussions that are made up. I know since I have been here I have definitely seen some that are just posted to get responses and a reaction, I have had a good laugh at most of them.

you are the first who have accepted that there are few who come up with fake stories for getting more responses and i found that every one really enjoy those kind of stuff and i have responded to them as well and ecided to overlook those kind of ones while responding.Thank you for responding.gud day.

I don't mind someone having a joke and I often play along with a discussion that I know is untrue. I just can't understand who make up serious situations just to get attention and responses

Hi, the very idea of starting a discussion is to get responses, no one wants a discussion topic that gets no responses. One has to think of topics that generate interest in the members and also has a lot of scope for further discussion.The idea here is to do that and also earn more. So, it is alright if a member creates a discussion with the idea of getting more responses...

hi kiran,normally people come up with discussions with an intention to get more responses but what i have mentioned is "creating" discussions which means creating a new problem out of no where which means the response you are providing helps no person coz there is no real person in that problem hope you got the point.Thank you for responding.gud day.

Everyone know why we are all are here in MyLot.I think that every discussion in MyLot needs to be discussed.Its not that they are created to get more responses but they get responses and people in here are keen to give response to any good discussion which brings both the joy in our heart and money as well which is one of the big factors why we are writing discussions and responding to many.Every Discussion ought to be responded and many people including me are keen on giving responses to any discussion regardless of who created them.Well I hope everyone here loves to write discussion and response to them.

Inview, every opinion is based on self-individualistics. The best opinion should be within/from individual personal thinking faculty, or write-up. Copy and pasting others write-up would be like a wealth gathered with bad deeds or fraud. Test is the only way to judge the level of learning progression.

Yes I agree with you, there are some discussions which are intentionally made to get more responses. For example Just now I read a discussion like :"My Friend finally Killed...." the topic is so latchy so that everyone will respond to that. Even sometimes I even responded to these type of discussions.

but you have missed it first and later parts of that superb creation .I have been to all those consequent life saving discussions and am fed up with those and it inspired me to come up with discussion to know if every one in here enjoys responding to those kind of stuff.Thank you for responding.gud day.

I think that all topics comes from the experiences, observations, research of the one discussing it. In my case, if I am gone of ideas and things to discuss I do research in order I can relate my own experiences to it or share other peoples experiences for me to know what other mylotters think about it. I think it comes from every individual who needs to know other people's idea.

I wouldn't know if a discussion is made up or not. But is that how discussion are suppose to be? you come up with a story and others will give their own opinions. There's always two sides of the story. Topics are topics, the one who posted the discussion will just lay down the idea so others can share their own opinions. It could be that the person who started the discussion may not know anything about the topic but chances there are members who experts in it. SO personally, there nothing wrong when others start a discussion just for the sake of having a discussion regarless of its truthfulness because that is the main purpose of the site. I think the problem is those who are pretending to an expert in the topic and yet dont have a clue and giving false information in the process. But we wouldn't know either would we? So its really up to us to believe and verify what is being shared here. Cheers!

I am not offending those who create new stories using their creativity but about those who create discussions asking for help where the problem really doesnt exist at all.they get some responses to that and they start another one saying that they have successfully got rid of the so called critical situation and start a new one expressing their thanks.Is it possible for any one to clear their problems that too critical within hours isn't that sound weird.Thank you for responding.gud day.

I honestly believe that there are probably several mylotters who make up stories to start discussions and to get them going. However, I also think that for the most part the majority of the discussions that are started do deal with the truth. Any time that you get a large group of people together there are going to be some that fabricate the truth, but over and above there will be the majority that does tell the truth.
@sunnycool (12737)

yeah you are right many mylotters come with good ones and true ones too but a single person coming up with so many critical discussions asking for help make me feel fishy and we shouldnt encourage those kind of discussions by responding.Thank you for responding.gud day.

I do believe that has happened but we are here to earn, but that is tsn't the most important reason at all, as being able to share and learn from ohters is more important. I do believe however, some are here just for the money and they post lots of one liners and meaningless posts, just to see how much they can do to earn, but they certainly don't realize that if they aren't quality, they won't earn from them. I have responded to a few and told them that their one line discussion as they call it, is not a discussion at all, but a question needing help for one thing or another. I wish that they wouldn't do that, and post discussions that have meaning, and are sensible ones that users can respond to. It is sad, as ones like that are missing out on what the real reason for being here is. The money is a bonus and nothing more as it isn't enugh to live on that is for sure. I am glad I am here though, and I will stay here for as long as I can. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

hi rosekiss i have nothing to offend against those new ones who start a one line discussion as they are new here and they would learn by themselves one day or the other.I started this one to point out the ones who come up with fake stories and you have been here for while and cant you predict if the discussion asking about help is an original case or an dupe one?Thank you for responding.gud day.
