Honest or dishonest what difference does it make here?
April 21, 2017 3:49am CST
myLot rules expect users not to violate them. Whether a user says they are rich or poor, married or not married, educated or not educated............ while replying to posts it matters little whether they are being honest or not. It is for their own peace that they tell the truth and not to please another user here. What say?

I have no use for out-and-out liars, here or anywhere. I watch some users posting things that I am 99% sure are not the truth...and I ignore them. They are not going to receive interaction from me, which means they are not going to receive earnings from me. So I would say it does matter, somewhat.

When I accept someone as my friend here in mylot or add one as my friend, I always give the benefit of the doubt that they're not lying. But when I realize that they do, I just don't interact with them anymore. I guess honesty matters to me, because friendship matters to me.

I have my own standards in this world that I live by. I don't like lying and I don't like others who lie all the time. I am an open book with nothing to hide-here or anywhere else so I choose to tell the truth. I actually found someone not lying per se but being someone who I never thought they would be. I don't interact with them now much because I was so disappointed in who they really are...

Being truthful is easier than telling lies in the long run. With falsehoods you must remember what lie you told to whom, and continue supporting that lie with further lies. Truth stands on its own and is much easier to manage.
I don't lie, but I might be careful on what information I do disclose. For example, I might say I am in Europe, but you won't see me stating the exact country, city and street address. If something bad happened in my real life, I keep it to myself. No need to bring the depression all the way here. We also have to be careful whether we are exposing loved ones or even acquaintances (neighbors etc) by sharing too much information. We might feel ok sharing our utmost secrets with the whole Internet, but others might not. With that being said, I don't mention my name or my location, therefore whatever I say here shouldn't pose any risk. For all you guys know, I could be a dude living on Mars.

Uuuhh ... honesty matters everywhere. (???) Doesn't it? Where are we going with this discussion? Are you saying since it's an online discussion forum you can generously dole out "alternative facts" and nobody will be any the wiser? That's a joke. The "alternative facts" part. Hope you get my sense of humor. You may not get it if you're not American. But seriously ... being a liar, no matter "where" can hardly be a good thing. Surely it matters.

@AbbyGreenhill There is nothing that myLot can do about it. In the real world they could perhaps be booked but not here. All what one can do is to walk away when they are spotted. A juicy post perhaps packed with lies sometimes gets to the top of the top rated. It cannot be pulled down because it has not broken myLot rules.
