thanks for replying and contributing to my discussion. the avatar like i just said to anything respondent is meant to be eye catching and fun and in no way tries to depict that i'm in fact a big chested cartoon female. my chest is quite big as it my belly these days, sadly but female i most definately aint

The mega reads get displayed on the front pages of myLot, do not be discouraged. Make friends on myLot, participate in their discussions and they will participate in yours. In addition, build up a large referral following and ask them to participate in your discussions too. That way you will have mega participation and mega reads!

i always try to post comments on any responses my own posts get, assuming that i can contribute something to the argument even if its something flippant and/or lighthearted

dont talk rubbish. my avatar will have nothing to do with it. why do you think that people respond like bees round a honeypot to a supposed sexy young girl's post, because they think the avatar might just mean the poster is a sexy young girl. my avatar is eye catching and a bit of fun and i can assure you i'm no sexy young girl.....so maybe if in changed ut to a pic of cameron diaz in her undies i'd get plenty of reads

You're not the only with that problem I'm afraid... when you start an interesting discussion nobody responds but when you start to say nonsense you do get reaction :-( (you can check out in my discussion list which ones I mean ;-)) ) xx

thanks. i was thinking the same way. i see far too much rubbish being posted and people post on top of it, silly stupid two word and one word responses. but try to start a discussion where someone actually has to READ before replying and you get no replies. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh
