I will be rating responses only....Hogwash.

Mad about MyLot - It really makes me mad when people cheat on MyLot.  It's just not fair to all us honest folks trying to follow the rules.

I find that very annoying and feel it is against the discussion guidelines. It really makes me mad. How can the person be starting a discussion if they are not going to respond. This is done by several people that have very high ratings...over 8000. Am I wrong or is this against the guidelines.

I can understand what you are trying to say but I can see why certain people are doing this also. They do read and rate the discussions but don't put a response at times because they are getting flooded with responses and having difficulty keeping up with the responses. I have had some days my self where all I do on here is answer my posts. I don't get any discussions to post in at all. Now I am not complaining about this either but can see where these other posters are coming from. I personally try to answer as well as rate responses. With the new star system you can understand why we do this now. Well mari61960 keep answering. It is still a fun place to be. Oh by the way, I would have posted in your candy shop discussion but I am in Australia and can't afford the air ticket for some cheap candy haha. I have to buy the expensive stuff and eat it slower....

I'm almost sure I read somewhere that myLot encourage people to read the replies to their discussions and to respond to them. I think that users should be rewarded for this. I mean......what sort of discussion is it if the original poster doesn't return?

I've seen this too! I think it's wrong. The one person I seen doing it says that "I will be reading and rating only". And that deterred me from responding to any of her posts! I can understand that you may not have time to answer every single response, but you could answer SOME!!! You know? Geesh. I thought it was kind of rude. Oh well, it's her loss, she missed out on one of my great responses, ha ha ha! Have a wonderful day!

Well, at least they are rating! Some original posters of discussions never respond/rate after they post their first discussion topic!

But, I do agree that it's better to respond than to rate. It's not a "discussion" if it's not 2-way. Otherwise it's just like a message board for random comments not a conversation of sorts.

Yes, when people don't go back and at least respond to something in the discussion.. I'ts like posting on a message board. And that's no what I'm here for. I want to discuss. So what if I don't get paid for responding to my responses...Sometimes it needs a response and sometimes it doesn't. I do rate all responses though.
