Face it, when money is involved, people are going to do anything to take advantage of it. Making stupid discussions is included.

I've seen a mixture of carzy topics and worthy ones, reply to the ones that makes sense to you and ignore the "fake" ones. It is your choice.

I find it interesting that people are so concerned with getting responses. Why? You don't get paid for other people's responses. As least I don't think you do. I think you get paid for your responses. If I am wrong, please let me know.

I try to keep my topics and responses appropriate but I will admit that I chuckle when I read people posting silly things, it makes me laugh and keeps me interested.

I haven't been on this site very much, but from what I can see most of the topics that come up are so stupid how could you even find yourself responding. It sounds like some people have way too much time on their hands and need to get a job. A REAL JOB!!!!! All in all I do like reading the responses to the one liners made. You can learn alot from people if they are sincere and put their heart into what they want to say.

some of them are pretty outrageous, I hope they are made up. I saw 1 about a 34 year old guy who was proud that he traded some land in Mexico for a 14 year old child bride. It had tons of responses though.

Looks like it is hand work of some people. But the best thing is not to respond to such discussions.

Who cares? Some good conversations have come out of topics like these.

I don't think there are such things as a "fake" topic. "Absurd" may be a better word, and regarding these topics, it might be caused by wanting to have more responses. But people are responding! I think these are annoying but no cause for alarm as of yet.

I have started 24 discussions but all of them are quite decent ....but about 50% of the discussions are left aloof ......all my posts are based on my personal experiences......and i generally dont post one liners and also hate people who post one liners when they could really share their point of view in detail..... just posting one liners to raise your ratings fast and reaching your payout is wrong,who doesnt want money?i want it but through rightful means ..... NO OFFENSE INTENDED TO FELLOW MYLOT USERS....
