Discussions that are expected to be deleted.

Why is it that some Mylotters here, knowing that a discussion will soon be deleted or expect it to be deleted, still continue on leaving their comments on the discussion? Alright, I know they just want to maybe, leave an advice there or what but I think it's not worth the energy typing a few words on that discussion, knowing that the comments and earnings will be deleted. It happens to me too. Sometimes I'm in a dilemma whether to post or not as the discussion is interesting but I feel it'll be deleted. What's your take on this?

One discussion topic of me was deleted.. It is because I have promoted something on this.. I scanned the T&C only and didn't know so much about this.. Now I start new discussion more carefully than before

Its irritating because I had 4 emails today saying that my answer had been deleted because of the question was deleted. Why post discussions that people know will just get deleted! waste of time!

I just got one of those notifications today that a discussion I had responded to was deleted. It was on a quite innocuous subject, about discussions with no responses. I really do not understand what guideline it could have violated. Unless, someone after me posted something dreadful. There seems to be no rhyme or reason why some discussions get deleted and others don't. If I think the discussion is interesting, I will respond. If some creep messes it up later for the rest of us, so be it.

I also received a notification from Mylot and my situation was the same as you as I also commented on the same discussion as you! What a coincidence! Yea I also had no idea what guideline it violated. It's unfair to other Mylotters that if there's a comment that violates the guideline, the whole discussion got to be deleted. I mean, when did military discipline come into place in Mylot??? One for all, all for one??? LOL!

I see, even if the discussion was interesting and decent, there were chances that it get deleted because of some people posted something bad and dreadful?

I don't think that the bosses here have the ability to just delete one post from a discussion. Sadly, all must pay the price for the misdeeds of one.

It happened to me too. I was a little dismayed when I saw the email that the topic I've respond to got deleted. From then on I've learned my lesson and I only post on topics that I think is safe from being deleted.

I will sometimes respond in a discussion that I expect to be deleted, but very few and their must be a specific reason for my response. Guideline violations I will sometimes point out to people if stating how much we make, as for 1 it's usually incorrect and 2 mylot specifically states not to figure out the algorithm. I will sometimes answer a newbie discussion in which he/she asks a question that is specifically answered in the guidelines. Their are a few that are much more diligent than me and usually beat me to the discussion, mysd.

But then, if you know that the discussion's gonna be deleted, why not just ignore it?

hi JudgeIronFist that's the most creative user name I have seen. congrats. I was another one who felt sorry at times for the new person who had neglected to read the rules first.but my age gets in the way when I tried to suggest they ought to read the mylot information as it would help them know not to make some discussion. the thing is most just thought me a nosey old lady, they did not even realize I was merely trying to help.And my earnings went down ten dollars and I needed that t en to pay my internet bill each month;So I learned not to try to help but stay the hell away from discussions I knew would be deleted.Now I just say to people if they ask for help to pm me and I will gladly help.So I agree its best not to try to help with unsolicted help. nobody likes to be told what to do, although I still dont understand not wanting to know how to avoid have discussions deleted is wrong?

Hi Hatley, thanks for liking my username! Well, there are some people who just can't think straight and when we feedback to them, they will twist the whole situation around and think that we're scolding them, think that our words are not nice to hear. SIGH! I've met many of such people and all I can say is, enough is enough. I don't think people appreciate our help AT ALL! So why bother to help them? I mean, why can't they just accept criticisms and feedback instead of talking back to those who really mean good???

I think the discuss will be delete is because there is long time not get any respond by anyone so maybe they think is not so good to collect some trash which is no longer discuss by member as it is occupy forum space so they decide to clear it.

Maybe it's one of the reasons but I think it's just an excuse for them to delete it.

I only do when it's a new user posting that seems genuinely in error. And then only if no one else has pulled them up on it yet. Sometimes new users need a word of advice for starting out here at Mylot. I can't be bothered policing for the sake of it though, obviously it wouldn't be worth my time. There are times though, when the user is clearly just a spammer. I figure they can find out the hard way!

Just before responding to your discussion, I replied to one that I'm sure will be deleted. His discussion was a direct invitation for members to join him and underneath were his referral links for onbux and neobux. Seeing that his user rating was 1, I decided to suggest that he reads the discussion guidelines. I know that my response will be deleted too. Maybe, that's the last time I should do it.
