Are there cliques at Mylot? I don't do a lot of writing here as others but I do browse a lot and it appears as if there are cliques or "clubs" here at Mylot. I guess these "cliques are based on a follower, following base but I am not quite sure. I rarely hear from 90% of my followed/followers so I don't think that is it. I have noted that some groups here only seem to interact among themselves here and rarely ever stray outside the fraternity walls. Perhaps I am imagining things but I do get a sense of the old school days. Have you noticed cliques here at mylot?

I have been here for over a year and I find this site is very welcoming to an extent I was spending most of my time when I started here. As it happens other matters became secondary Now I take this for "granted" and visit whenever I can! There are no cliques here though one tends to look forward and support the few who gel with our thinking, style, topics and the quality of posts. I hope to be back to my active days soon - siva

I don't think so either. I response to any discussion that is of interest to me. I do have people on here who I have become friends with that I reply to most of their discussions.

I don't think so, at least, not in the way I think of "clique." Using your high school analogy, I always thought of a "clique" as a group of people who didn't want anyone from the "outside," and made fun of people who tried to join. Sure, you have people who write about pets, people who write about food, or whatever. I tend to mostly write about music, because truthfully, it's all I know. But none of the people who frequent the music area tell people to leave because they aren't part of the "clique."

There are cliques everywhere in our society and no, they don't have to tell you to leave to be called a clique, They just operate within a circle and may not let anyone in.

Just like in real life, there are some people you like more than others. That doesn't mean that you close ranks and won't let anyone else in, but it's natural to read and respond to people who do the same for you. But cliques as such - no.

If they do exist, I agree it would be based on who you like more. For me, the only people I like more than others are my close family members; outside of that I like everyone the same - even a "jerk" but I may "avoid" him/her in order to keep my sanity.

Clannish mentality was there rampant in the old myLot and because of that those outside of those cliques suffered no end. There is a decline in the revamped myLot although I cannot rule out its total absence.

I've been here 11 years and never been part of one. If they exist, I don't pay attention to them. I've always responded to anything that interests me from anyone that posts it, and if it doesn't interest me, I don't respond, no matter who posted it.

There is cliques at myLot---it is understandable it's PART OF ANY GROUP DYNAMICS. C'mmon fellow myLotters let us not fool ourselves. Clique by and in itself is not bad as long as it is not use for some ulterior motive or design to the damage and prejudice of the rest of myLotters. If the there is clique here, then it is "myLot within myLot". or the "old boy's club" (girls club?). We are not born yesterday.

I dont know if there are cliques but i do check some people's discussions on a daily basis. It is just because I always find the things they are discussing about interesting. But i also try to interact with new members and check the recent discussions

Because I have limited time to be on here, I tend to get back to those who are there for me first, but then I go to any discussion that interests me @Freelanzer , there are those here that I don't get along with but I just do my own thing. I do note there are those who stick to each other, but I think it is because they are online at the same times and have the same interests, etc.

I've never thought about it but now I have, I don't think there are cliques here. I like to think I interact with a great number of people and there are only one or two that I might avoid or give careful answers to. I haven't noticed others sticking to a few people but as I said, I don't really take a lot of notice.

Yes you do interact broadly and others as well but not everyone does and I am guilty of that, but only because I don't spend as much time as I would like to here. If cliques exist it could be because they have similar interests or are friend. It is a reality of life.

True, I am sure we all have our favorites but unless we have dozens of favorites it is necessary to step out and interact with others.

I don't think there are many on here, but like anywhere else, you get like-minded people that stay together. Does that mean they won't allow others in? I only thinking rare cases does that happen.

Due to limited time lately, I have barely been around. I am guilty of making sure that I read certain mylotters and should try to read more of others as time allows. It is not as if there is a club really, or any formal arrangement at all.

I don't think it is something people actually think about, but they do exist in the world around us so I suppose they could be found in schools, churches, and other groups if one is looks closely

No I do not think there are cliques.But there are some who respond and comment on certain people's discussions regularly.This may be because they are in the same timezones, share the same interests or simply like each other.

@AbbyGreenhill I beg to disagree. I am sure if we all examine our lives we will find that most of us have been is a clique o sorts during our lifetime. We may not want to admit it but it is life and it happens.
