Homie don't play that game...

PM I received today on a different site: "I have seen that you are an active member on myLot. If you want we can help each other by commenting each other posts on myLot and to earn even more. Pm if interested. Thanks." I understand some people do the 'tit-for-tat' thing here, and that's fine, but I don't do it. I replied: That's not how I do it there. I respond to everyone if their discussion interests me. I don't 'trade' responses/comments. I imagine I could probably get $50 or more a month here if I did what they suggested, but I am really not looking to 'improve' my earnings here. I'm fairly 'picky' what I respond to, and I'd have to force responses to discussions that really hold no interest for me to engage in anything of that nature. And that would make it too much like 'work' here. We all use myLot different, I imagine, but I am comfortable with how I do it. I don't want to feel I 'have' to respond to anything. I'm just here to enjoy myself. And to sometimes be a pain.

I did something similar to this when I first started and realized that it really isn't worth it. I suppose curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to see how much something simple like that would affect my earnings... you're right, way too much straining to reply to discussions about toothpaste and baking. Took the fun out of mylot!

I believe back in the old days 'views' (even from non-members) were part of the earning algorithm, although we weren't strictly 'paid' for them in and of themself...they were one of the factors used (among others) to decide what it was 'worth'.

I can't see doing that. I've been having fun exploring religious chats and talking about crafts! A lot of the other stuff.. kinda is like huh? I'm just not into sports and things and want my time to matter! I will comment on some things if I think it can help someone clearly having a bad day or is upset/sad.

@JolietJake I do that to.. but I'm kinda shameless for that search feature. So I've just been looking up crafts I enjoy or things I'm curious about trying! I figure it might save me some time in looking through some random posts...

Sometimes be a pain? More like always be a pain! I love the title of your post, its what one of my guy friends says in relation to ladies he dates showing up randomly at his house to return something or “just stop by”. Made me laugh - and I need that today!

So far, I've not suffered any pain, from your total honesty. It creates trust, something we can't obtain from some people, who live their life in a 'perfect little rose garden,' all the time. A lady asked me to exchange views with her which is manipulation, as far as I'm concerned. Jacking up views, isn't why I'm here. Instead, it's to meet new people, from all walks of life. It creates a warmer environment, whenever I login to My Lot. I love the feeling of acceptance I get here, that my own family never gives me.
is the message from a new member? or a returning member with a new account or double account? where do they get this "tip" or "tactic" from? from online blogs? from former members? from current members? is this why sites don't last? all they want is to milk it dry?
No...I seems discussion...it intrigues me or interests me...I read it...I have a comment...I make it...a few Mylotters I actively seek out...most discussions I read or comment on are happenstance. I guess that's why my earnings are plodding. If my desire was to earn more...I would go out and look for a job.
