Do you ever wonder if it's really true?

Being I'm still new to the MyLot Community, Sometimes when I see post, I wonder is this really something that is actually going on or happening in their life...Furthermore, when they say "my friend has a problem" or "what do you think if this happens to my friend, how should I approach it" Do you think it's their own issue but they want to remain annoymous. or the handbanger "I'm going to commit suicide, because I hate myself(I scratch my head and wonder why on those kind of posts). I know people are here to make money and I know there are people who give honest give advice. Is there a way to tell when someone is making something u?, do you care or are you in it for the money, or do you just post in hopes they need some real advice?

I wonder, too. I know that there are some users who post fantastical stories just to get replies. It was pointed out in a discussion here awhile back that at least one user had been caught doing that, as they had wildly differing stories about their life that they had posted from day to day that did not add up. But I still go ahead and reply if I feel like I hav something to say. I try not to worry about it, because either way I'm making a little money that I really need _and_ if the person in question really does need advice, maybe I will have helped them in some small way. So, why not reply? *laugh* It's really not that big of a deal, in my mind. ^_^ I really enjoy writing, so it's not like I'm forcing myself to do this! *laugH*

Yes I understand that. I think the same thing. If it helps it helps true or non-true and just go on what you read. Sometimes you can tell really taking the time to read what they wrote...You have a good one and thanks for responding
