Where Old MYLOT Discussions Hide
September 8, 2017 1:48pm CST
Contrary to members who delete their discussions once they've got enough reads I save mine. English is a foreign language for me and I put some effort into them. I don't know why I shouldn't post them again for new readers who weren't around yet when I posted them the first time so that they can enjoy my pearls of wisdom. Over the years, I've got a vast collection of posts from different sites. When I see a title, I sometimes can't remember where I posted the text. So I have to do some checking on google. If it's a site which has died - and there have been quite a lot over the years (not through my fault, though, I hasten to add) - I can use the text again. Today I saw a text in my collection and thought of posting it. I remembered that I had written it not too long ago. Was it for bubblews? Or even for myLot? It would be embarrassing if I posted the same text again after a year or so. Google led me to a site with the strange title 'MyLot Most Recent Discussions' . Recent? It contains only old ones. Darn! I saw the title under the date 11/5/2016. So it's already on the site and I can't use it again. Out of curiosity I scrolled back to the date in my list of discussions. But the text isn't there! Niente, nada, zilch. What now? Why does the site I've found via google tell me that I posted the discussion on a certain date and when I check this date it isn't there? Please, Mr Admin @GoAskAlex enlighten me and tell me if I can post the discussion here now. --- The link doesn't lead to the site where my discussion is listed. Don't know why. It shows a random one.

This is very interesting, I would also like to know. I have saved ALL my articles/ posts but I do not save discussions. Why? because they are more in the minute chatting. When my blog articles are about a continuing story of life and are anywhere from 350 words to over 1,000. I have stopped writing the blog about cooking because that one will be a book someday before I die, I hope.

Well, I suppose if it isn't on this site, and the only place that is still exists is a site mirroring discussions from this site, there really isn't much harm. I heard back from Bugs, the site is not at all affiliated with MyLot.
This is curious, I have checked the site and I see myLot posts showing there. Is this site legit? I think that you should ask Admin.

This link led me to the most recent discussions on Mylot as of yesterday. Why are people interested in this? Can't they get the same information by going on Mylot itself? Are we that popular on the Internet? Can we get famous this way?

I don't keep any of my posts. I treat what I writ here as social networking, not something I hope will be there for any length of time. However, I know that many myLot writers do take the site much more seriously. Therefore it must be frustrating to find yourself in the situation you're in.
