I agree with you..,sure people are coming here to try and earn money, but I think they should do it in the intended way of true participation and discussion to help build the site as opposed to spamming the place up with moronic stuff just for the sake of thinking easy change... I was going to say that when it all comes down to it this post of yours ends up being sort of similar to those in a way..ha ha...but look at how much I was able to type in response, so therefore i will not pick at that...there will surely be many more copy-cat topics such as this if the were not already up as well anyway... people should look to see if there is a topic already started with what they want to start as well as opposed to 300 people asking me if I like the color red or how tall I am... maybe there should be more monitoring and then a lot of this BS would be edited out and topics kept fairly intelligent and then there would be less participants I am sure and more money could be earned possibly at a better rate for sharing input and referrals and such..

First, I personally dont agree of using the word idiots on myLotters or any other person. Also, you can ask whatever question and you can respond to what ever discussion. There are no rules on myLot. If you feel that a particular discussion is not up to your standard, you can ignore it. Thats what I do. See, we are answering your discussion dont we. Also, we dont think its an idiotic discussion. Likewise, please try to reason out. Good luck and happy responding.

Some discussions might not interest you or you might find them boring, so just ignore those and get on with those that you do have an interest in. It is a bit unfair to call other people idiots just because you don't approve of their discussions and/or questions. And yes some topics are repeated over and over again but that will always happen unless you have several moderators who checks these things. I believe if there were moderators, then they would certainly vet and/or ban a lot of the questions, discussions and comments. Then the amount that many people earn would be greatly reduced, so in general if you want to come here and earn money then you have to take the good with the bad. And you cannot or should not bad mouth other members just to get a lot of responses to your discussion.

i guess it's for the fun and easy earning of points. anyway, we all do get shallow sometimes, right? :P i just wish myLot would improve our discussions by making an auto-tool to monitor topics or Qs posted so it won't be repeated over and over, especially that we members can't keep track of all the posts. kinda saving our time (especially the new members) and so we'll not look stupid too, asking a question that has been posted and discussed thoroughly.

i think there should be a built-in automatic tool by myLot that notifies the member when he/she makes a post on a similar question/discussion, so it won't be permitted by the system itself (like myLot does not allow bad words). that would be a lot convenient (and less annoying?) for us.

I agree! It would make it easier for everyone, since how do you you just posted a question with 100 more out there that are the same as yours, just wrote with diff words or phrased differently -until you come across all the 'other' ones! LOL.. But as for the 'dumb' questions, like 'what color shirt are you wearing today?' -It's so obvious they are in this for points, money alone...What's more frustrating is seeing questions like this with 500+ responses! I can't lie and say i havn't answered some, but what is 'dumb' is relative, so that's where our freedom of choice comes in, i guess. I would love a system that tells you somehow that one of your questions is a duplicate -But unless your ? is worded EXACTLY the same as another -How could that be??

There are some discussions that don't interest me, so I don't respond to them, but some of the ones like you have mentioned I find kind of fun. Isn't there room for everyone to have their own opinions and preferences?

Just because someone asks a question that doesn't interest you... doesn't make them idiots or the questions boring.

I think that people are posting to earn money and answering for the same reason. It may seem that there are boring or monotonous questions, but just think of it as earning and helping that person to earn. No big deal. There are still interesting or funny questions out there. Lets start some more....
