We all know how easy it is to mis-label something: that title on the YouTube video that absolutely isn't what the video portrays... Setting aside mis-labelling, and the tirade of, often abusive, feedback comments such errors generate, there can be the odd brief nugget that strikes a chord:

I'm not a cartoon person. I didn't grow up with cartoons and I've never been attracted by them later on in my life. I couldn't watch this one up to the end.

@pgntwo It's not that. I can be rather patient. I'm simply not attracted. It's a matter of taste. If you were offered a free ticket for something musical and one for an art exhibition, which would you choose? I'd never take the music option. Others would only take the music option.

@MALUSE Dilemma! I like both, you see. Now if it was a free ticket to a football match or a free ticket to an exhibition, the exhibition would win hands-down. I do see your point, though.

I think I'm loosing something in translation. I get your point about mislabel to get more views and I have seen this one too. But what do you mean by your last comment on your post "odd brief nugget that strikes a chord"? I never have heard of this expression before and when I try to figure out the translation it is not good at all.

Odd - infrequent brief - short nugget - small item of value strikes a chord - has a message or meaning. Not sure if that helps...?

@pgntwo OK thanks that is much better now for me. I understand. Sorry I am French by birth and my first language. I did go to school for English and my job basic functions were mostly in English. There are still some expressions I don't understand because it's been some time since I worked a lot in English. I write more in English than I actually speak now so I still do some translating in my head to make sure I have it right.

@poehere You are welcome. Your English is very good, much better than my French certainly!

Have you ever waited months for a download? Seems like it sometimes.

A bit like waiting for a payment from a certain website we all know and loathe, by many accounts...

@pgntwo Exactly. I gave up on that, not because they stopped paying me (they always have), but because my return on time and effort invested evaporated.

We found it to be quite hit-and-miss where we stayed last summer, but the year before, in Las Llanzas urbanizaciĆ³n., near Les Llances tram stop, it was good enough for web tv!

Many try to peddle one thing as another but it gets like the boy who cried wolf story - when they finally post something genuinely interesting no one trusts it enough to look or care

@pgntwo Like on TV a few bad posts or episodes can reduce our ratings

Well, pgn, this was the first video I have watched from here on myLot... I could have lived that two and a half minutes in some more profitable way, I think... Thank you for wasting it instead! That one definitely needs to be relabeled!

A shame you can't effect a re-label on myLot, just pasting in the link to the video from YouTube but populating your own text around it... I guess we should be pleased we can past links in at all .

So sometimes the mistake is actually the truth or close to it.
