Why join Mylot and Do Nothing?
October 1, 2015 10:57am CST
I'm seeing a new trend here for people following everyone they can see posting without liking, comment or interacting at all or writing any posts of their own. Their own stats lists are all set at zero except for the list of who they follow and a few who follow them back. Without doing more they can't possibly earn a cent. The only worry is that they might be looking for content to copy and pass off as their own elsewhere. Arthur Chappell

People have to join to read all the content, as the discussions are filtered by an adult filter when you are not logged in. Two possibilities : - they joined, did not liked myLot and left ; - they are silent admirers following their preferred members. Personally I never follow back somebody with no responses or comments left, because some of them turned to be spammers in the past.

This is a possibility, but it could always be a result of not understand the system here. It is not uncommon for people to enrol in a site and eagerly rush around trying to connect to everyone in sight to boost their earnings. Of course, as you rightly say, their earnings will remain at zero.

I'm afraid I have done that on several of these sites. The only way to figure out if a site is right is to join and then flit about. Some of them are too slow or complicated for me. I can't see that most of these posts would be worth stealing to post elsewhere. I'm more concerned about that on Wizzley or HubPages.

I can understand newcomers reading for a few hours or days before interacting but some new but silent members have kept it up over weeks and followed 70 or more posts without interacting further at all. That sets alarm bells ringing.

Hmmm... Well, I only have one post of my own, so far, but I have been having a blast on myLot just the same! Apparently, according to my stats I am following 22 people but 33 are following me... That seems a little odd. Oh, well, let it seem odd... I don't see how most of them matter, anyway. All I am sure about is that 1. I am having fun! 2. I have found a lot of people here willing to go along with my silliness. 3. I appear to be earning from my activities... Uhm... I have no clue why someone would join this site and not jump in with both feet! That's what I did and am still doing!
