Send you a private message and explaining about how to earn money in a website so on and in the end of the message you will see a referral link of them? I don't normally receive them but Just this week I have 3 messages of referral messages and it's irritating me.I also figured out that most of them are newbies but I really don't responds to it as it's a waste of time.

It makes you hopeful when someone sends you a private message. you think they really want to chat and converse with you. It is discouraging to find it is only a plea to join something with them. it can really let the air out of your sails.

Frankly, I am not angry with it. I will just ignore it. After all, it won't have an effect on me. I don't mind that I will receive these private messages. I love China

I am not irritate with them... they are just raising their earning.. what if your referral links will not accept by others?? what will you feel?? or what if you give a referral link to a person and did not accept it?? Sometimes we must be thankful for the others because they make us aware of so many things... What if that link is the solution to your needs?/ and if that referral link is the best site that created in the field of Online Earning?? We must explain to that person that you are not interested about it because you have plenty of money..:) just explain to him that you have so many activities that you can't manage to have another site.. Just explain him briefly and in a polite manner.. I son't think he will bother you again... We must know hope to deal with that kind of situation because maybe next time around you will be needing their help for some reasons..

Well I'm sure it took them five minutes or more to write out that message. Just like its going to take me approximately five seconds to delete that message, without a second thought. Any spam of all type, I don't even read this time. It really does frustrate me a lot of the time, when people try and send spam, trying to get me to sign up to their referral links, I doubt I am alone in saying that I will not even bother to look at them. People, I'm going to break your hearts and tell you this. Spam does not work, at all. That is just all that there is to it. You can send me all of the links that you want to. I will ignore them every single time. It only takes me a few seconds to delete the message and the few seconds that I have to take out of my day, to delete the message, that is going to irritate me beyond all belief. So, spam is for dinner, not bothering people at myLot.

That is why there is a "delete" button! I go in when they do that and immediately delete the friendship. Especially if I see that they have 0 posts and are just trying to get me to sign up on their site. They should at least hang around a while!

Hi insulin: I have to agree with you. I can't stand people that send me spam but I don't answer their Personal Messages either. Sometimes I take a look to the sites but honestly I haven't found a site from these messages that make me want to join. ALVARO

Hiinsulin, Earlier I use to get such PM quite frequently but as I never responded to them it has lessened in number. Just the other day one newbie very politely asked me to follow a link which pays a lot. I said that I am not here for money making and even if I feel like making some quick bucks I have address where from I can get article writing task that pay 4 to 5 dollar for 500 words articles. I said sorry.

Yes. I have several messages from a member about different sites. I don't appreciate it at all. I should delete them as a friend so they will stop sending me these messages but I don't think of it at the time I just delete them. Maybe the next time I get a message from them I will reply back telling them I don't appreciate the spam and that I am deleting them because of it.
