Delete Your Post And Still Be Paid – What?

I was a little surprised a few weeks back when I read that deleted post still earn money. I was under the impression if you deleted your post you wouldn’t earn on this. Guess I was wrong about this. I have been gone for a week and just read a comment on one of my post. The person was talking about another member here complaining they had one of their posts deleted. Apparently the person was complaining and said they would delete all of their posts. I personally didn’t see this post or even look for it. But here are my thoughts on this one. If one of your posts gets deleted by Admin it means you haven’t followed the rules. There is no need to take this personally. Learn from it and don’t make the same mistake twice. Just because one of your posts was deleted there’s no need to delete all of your posts. That is a little childish and doesn’t show good sportsmanship. Bu deleting all of your posts you’re not being fair to other members here on the site. They took the time to read these posts and leave comment. You’re not hurting just yourself but all members here on the site. It also appears that everyone who comments on this person’s post was blocked. Now just because you don’t agree with what people say why block them. Why not just delete their comment and move on. This blocking is getting out of hand on the site. I blocked one person and I was sure it would end in WWIII here on the site. People take blocking personal and a lot of people get angry when you block them. Loved to hear your thoughts about deleting your posts and blocking a person because they don’t agree with you. Personal image

We've had our differences here but I'd like to move on from that if you're willing? I've had enough of all this blocking BS that has been going on. As adults we should be able to have a debate...or argumentand then get over it and maybe even become friends. I've never blocked anyone and never will as I believe it is counterproductive to this site. People can say whatever they want to me and I may get angry with them but I won't be participating in this blocking nonsense. I don't agree with deleting any comments by other people but maybe we can agree to disagree on that point? My thoughts are I'd never block or delete anyone for disagreeing with me although I'll admit I've removed a few of my own comments some time ago but I've since turned over a new leaf and won't be making overly aggressive comments to anyone again.

Mike I am not a person to hold a grudge or be angry for long periods of time. The argument at the moment is one thing. After it is over and resolved so is everything else. I moved passed this a long time back. I've been busy with a few assignments and some hard drive recovery work. I haven't had time in over a week to even come here once. I have to agree with you about blocking and deleting comments. If a comment is deleted you can't see all sides of the conversation. Personally I could care less if people want to block me or not. On the other hand I do agree with you it is childish and a little immature to do it on a site like this. You come here to get people's opinions and see what they have to say. You post on the site so you can get a response to your ideas. Like I said in this post I have no idea who this person is. I am only going by a comment I read on my post. I was shocked to see this comment and decided to write it up. The comment was left on a post I wrote some time back about being respectful when you leave a comment on another person's post. I don't know if the post still exists here on the site, if the person still writes here, or they have already deleted all of their posts and left. I haven't been here and just read about this tonight on another post of mine.

@poehere I don't know the person you may be talking about either. I've seen a few discussions lately where people have been blocked Just today I went to respond on a discussion only to find I was blocked and I'd never interacted with the person in any way If I've argued with someone I could understand why they may block me but to block someone you've never spoken to is a bit weird in my opinion.

@poehere after doing a little reading I think I know what you're referring to. Thing is people need to realise that what admin says goes. Also when people try to help it's not a good thing to delete their responses and block them

Here are a few key words for ye all! Search engine spider, web analytics, XmlHttpRequests just to name a few. Now perhaps you are thinking that is all fine and good but what do they have if anything to do with my post? I am not 100% sure on this but there may be outside sources keeping track of site traffic. If that is the case the overall member activity may be the most important consideration and not how many pages there are on a site like this. I’m really guessing here however. What that means if it is true is when you wrote deleted posts hurt people well that may not be true providing of course the post stays on board long enough to make the counter move. If you deleted this comment in a short time for example I would earn nothing or won’t until someone replies to it. Certainly if it is deleted after we all our get our digits to move there will never be any increase after a deletion. Which brings up my point and the reason I started my comment this way. Writing of any kind that is stagnate without interaction are really the ones which are valueless? Being ignored is as valueless and is almost identical to being blocked but not as statistical. I’ve found that the community finds ignoring not only acceptable but promoted as the best way to interact with others when the going gets a little rough or tuff. Blocking is just making refusal to communicate official? So what is with this anger?

I have no clue at all. Last night I stopped by and saw all this. I have been off for around 7 days now and had zero time to come here. When I come back I saw this. A little surprised and shocked. Then I saw a person who joined in my absence block me. Not here, no interactions, and no comments. Guess it was my face they didn't like. So decided to change my face and name and see if they like this one better.

@poehere It took me much to long to figure all this out as to who is doing what. I've been blocked by the same person too.

I didn't know about that as well. If I am not mistaken, in old mylot, sometimes we might find our earnings in the bank dropped, that could be some discussions that we participated have been deleted. I am not sure how this works in the new mylot, perhaps Admin knows better. I think it makes sense that all the earnings will be lost if the discussion has been deleted. As for blocking others, I think there must be a reason for us to do so. If someone has blocked me, I'd think it's because the person is not interested in receiving my comments. I think it's fine, though I might be a bit sad about this, we have the rights to choose whom we want to talk to or befriend with. We can't please everyone in the world, and not everyone can please us as well. I haven't block anyone here yet, but if someone keeps making me upset in the comments, I might block him or her as well. I just don't want to ruin my mood when I am enjoying my time in mylot.

You are so right. But what gets me on this blocking is that the person has free freedom to read our post, comment on them, and say what they want. But we can never see a word they said. So what good is this one? Why block if you have something you want to say on a post. The person you blocked has no idea at all what you have said.

@poehere That's a bit weird to me. Why would I want to read or comment on someone's I have blocked? Well, there are just weird or just different people around.

@kaka135 Well this person thinks it funny. Here is what she said to me that I can't read now. I can only find it on her responses. Delete Your Post And Still Be Paid – What? Pamela James • @PamJam (247) • Manassas, Virginia3h Oh my!!! Never, NO Never....admit to being wrong! (Yikers ) No idea what this person's problem is at all. I have never interacted with her before. I believer this is the person that the comment left to me was all about. Otherwise they wouldn't of come here to this topic and posted on it.

If I unfriended my real life friends who didn't agree with me I'd have no friends to argue with! There are some here who I've had a few 'words' with but all is well and we moved on. You and I disagreed early on if you remember but there was no blocking involved.

You're right. Even married couples get into spats now and then. You can't block them and unfriend them. So why do it here. We don't know each other personally. I don't think it is a very friendly thing to do.

@poehere Why did you take your name off? I'd have to have a really good reason to block someone and so far I haven't.

@AbbyGreenhill New Year, new change. Seems nobody understand Poehere and what it means. Plus Po or Poo is not nice in Tahitian. I decided to change this because of that. You are right about blocking it takes a lot of problems to decide to block a person. A simple PM asking to stop would be better.

I am curious about something, Ann.... How can someone earn from a post they have deleted? I have deleted a post I had authored. It was about my great niece. I didn't want to write it and really didn't want to post it. I did write it because I couldn't get it out of my head. It was a poem that tied in with one jaboUK had written. After I wrote it, I could finally write a new one without the new one turning into another copy of the one about my great niece.... Janet told me I should post the other one I wrote about my niece, as it deserved to be read and seen, too. So I posted it. I left it up for a day and then deleted it so I didn't have to see it anymore. Contrary to some things I have seen written here, my post was not deleted by admin. I deleted it myself. I couldn't take all the sympathy anymore. I don't like sympathy and prefer not to hear it or see it. I am sure I damaged others earnings by deleting that post. I know when Lamb deleted all his posts, a few people said their bank dropped... I wasn't paying attention to my bank, but I did have many notifications on his threads that I still needed to respond to, many of them not from him, so in essence, he damaged my earnings, as well as his own and many other people's earnings. I have blocked someone on myLot by accident and one person on purpose (back when I first started) who lied to/about me. I take that very seriously. I don't lie and don't appreciate being called a liar.

You can't continue to earn from a deleted post, but you don't forfeit any earnings you already made from it. Deleting it doesn't affect the earnings of anyone, other than they can't earn any more on it.

@JolietJake So what you have said is this: If I go in and delete all of my discussion I won't lose my earning. However, I will never gain from them again. Understandable you can't gain from them again. They are gone

One time in early January I did notice earning dropped. I had no idea why. But according to a few comments I've read recently if you do as Lamb has done this shouldn't of effected anyone's earning at all. I think basically it is brand new posts with comments that the system hasn't registered earning on so far. I can see if you've deleted this post the people who commented on it didn't earn anything. But if this posts stays up for a week and deleted it shouldn't have effected earning.

Like I said I didn't read it either. I just read a comment a few minutes ago from a person. They had left me one earlier and I responded. When they answered me back they told me this in the comment. I am just thinking that was sort of childish to be like this. I have no idea right now who the original poster was on the site. All it basically said is that they responded to a post about a post being deleted. The person who wrote the post said they wanted to delete all of their posts. When the person commented to this the writer of the post blocked them. Now to me this is childish. Maybe we should search for this one. I am only going by what the person said in the comment. I thought it awful strange a person would get that angry and write about deleting all of their posts.

@silvermist Truth I don't know where it is. I just read my comment and a person mentioned this in the comment. I have no idea who wrote this and who said they wanted to delete their posts. I am hoping a person can tell us who it is. Anyhow the post here is about blocking and deleting posts out of anger. I feel like this one is wrong and shouldn't happen. A site has paid you for your interactions on the post. Basically a few sites I worked for in the past it wasn't allowed to delete your work once you were paid. It just seems a little strange to read a person wanting to delete all their posts. Why? Then blocking a person if they don't agree with them. Here we all leave our work because who knows it can attract others to read it later on. I still get comments on stuff I wrote when I first came to the site. I don't see a need to delete them from here. I think I shared them and I leave them for anyone who wants to read them. Deleting them seems stupid to me and doesn't accomplish anything at all.

Some people do not understand that debate are good just because some of us do not agree on the same thing. Which in turn create more comment on that person page and help us all earn more money in the long run.

You are so right. What makes me laugh right now is they are upset and want to comment on discussion. They can comment all day long and we can't read a word they said. This is nice for us I guess in the end.

I have never blocked anyone. I am half tempted to do it, just to see what happens. Of course, I am all grown up and and know better than to do stuff just because I am curious. I used to take things way to personally. It took me a long time to figure out that I didn't have to do that, I just had to learn from my mistakes.

This is life learning from our mistakes. I don't block people. I did once out of anger and then unblocked them. Now I just ignore them and they ignore me. Works out fine this way. If you don't interact with them then they never interact with you.

I write a lot of stuff people don't want to hear; not that I'm trying to be mean, just that I hate 'blind belief.' (I believe God gave us these brains, so 'not using them' is like "throwing that sweater-from-grandma away ... RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER FACE!") They can't convince me their blind-faith is true, just like I can't convince them my visible reality is true!

i guess it depends on what it is that they are saying and doing. If it isn't serious like something to incite arguments I just leave it but if I found someone just causing trouble because they can and think its funny i would probably block them although I don't really do it. I have been blocked by people i don't care enough to let it bother me.
