Responses not making sense

United States
January 28, 2007 9:26pm CST
There are some responses on certain discussions that I've encountered that are just plain non sense. I hate it especially when people answers "yeah" or "I don't know cause I'm not ...." I mean, you respond to the discussion in an attempt to share an opinion, if you have no idea or no say about the topic, it is useless to post a response just to say you don't know right? It seems like some people are just into earning points...

Isn't it kinda irritating? Like you somehow expect them to make a point or share an opinion, but then if they have no idea, then what the heck are they doing trying to reply, they can just not reply then right? haha..

it's funny. but people should use their common sense. if they have no idea about a certain topic, why type it down? you don't know about the topic, then don't try to reply to that certain discussion. we're not interested in knowing members who do not know anything about a certain issue.

ya, you are correct. if there is noidea means don't want to respond to the discussion .It is not a good and healthy discussion if everyone respond with "yeah" or "don't know" or "no idea". members shouuld avoid this type of response.

There are allot of reason why people are here and the most common reason were "money". yes they are here for money, and they do what ever the can to earn that $10 minimum pay out. The beginner will most likely the one that spam the site with discussion. To be honest , at first my intention is to earn money and this is the main reason why I join but later I changed my intention. I actually enjoyed posting and witting. This is a good pass time compare to online games. I do know that if I post quality post it can help me earn more so I alway take my time to post something nice and quite a high rating when I reach 100 post.

Yeah i agree with you, but it's useless if the response just like that, their wont earn lot money. For example, i have a friend that do that thing and he only earn small money from his responses. But he have reason for doing that, he said that he not good in english, but i'm same either. The different is i only response the topic that i can understand, so i can make response. Or maybe the topic discussion only need simple answer ;)

In such a case, you can either help mylot to improve the situation. You can rate them negative though it seems cruel. Or you can just leave them alone. Maybe, their one word or sentence response helps in your higher earnings. The only thing is that no matter how frustrated we feel about this sort of responses, we do not do it as well.

It's quite annoying, but lets just leave it that way. We have no right to have something against those people.

Personally I dont have anything against the one liners or the one word answers. Maybe its because im still just starting out here in myLot and have yet to reach the mark of 5 when it comes to creating my own discussions. Its their loss if they continue to respond like that anyways. If myLot really does offer money for posting responses, they would not benefit from it..wont they?! Regarding the responses that dont make sense. Maybe they are not used to speaking in english or in this case, writing. Wouldnt we all complain if theyd use a foreign language to answer a discussion. My english is not that good. I might make typos and some grammatical mistakes coz i dont read my post all over again. All we can do is just appreciate the responses although they dont make sense. I do believe that people do try hard to express themselves but not all of them succeed in doing so the proper way. Im not sure if there are responses that are offensive. If any, those should be the ones being reported and oh...spamming too..if it is possible here.. Anyways I hope myLot really does shed out money for the responses we give. I would love looking around ebay for some small stuff i could use paypal to buy with. Ciao!!

Its no big deal, those people who refuse to make an effort will soon see their posts deleted. If I see posts like that in my topics(when I actually make a topic that is) I usually just give them the negative rating they deserve and just keep it moving.

Ofcourse most of the people here wants to earn more money...Honestly I respond to all the discussions I run into..but I don't give just lame responses because that won't give me anything.I make sure I am able to discuss on the topic being discussed.Yes it is useless to respond to something you don't know but in a discussion you don't know you can still discuss about it...like for me give an opinion on what is being said..bring out what you think about what his person is trying to discuss. I see somenonsense discussion here as well but I try to give them my true and honest opinion.

Holy cow YES....I've had a few posts on my discussions that were like that. I posted a question about my cat/dog and one response was ----- I don't know, I don't have any pets..... Why would you post then? Strange. I agree that some are out there just to get points and are finding what they can to post to. I did get some responses that said 'I haven't had that experience but if I did I would....' I'm with ya smints...one

I am one on mylot trying to earn points here, but I did not reply just like "I don't know". I only respond to those topics that I am interested. If I know nothing about a discussion, I would choose to move to another topic because there are many other discussions here...

I totally understand but remember there is a monetary incentive for all who cooperate so their heart is not exactly into it. Some folks are here for one reason and one reason only and have not realized the benefit of sharing knowledge and emotions and experiences. But don't let it bother you, it's there loss.

I know, it drives me nuts. Some answers are totally incoherent and have nothing to do with the question asked. What is up with these people?

I think that the worst response I have recieved so far is a single two letter word "so". This is a very annoying practice because it not only fails to add to the discussion but can also be very distracting, especially when you get several such responses which seperate all the good replies from each other. Fortunately, these people will not earn by this method, so they soon either improve or cease posting.

The person like you in mylot this already a large number of that complained about discussions in mylot this, that is opposing the person's answer, why you like most people here? Did you not all that receive attention here and I thought you indeed looked for attention here..Lol.

i would have to agree with you on that one. i hate it too when people just write a few words response because it shows that they are only after money that can be made here. but sometimes there are those discussions where there is only a yes or no answer and people just answer it quickly to get that fast response.

That's because some people just want that one penny per response it seems. I doubt it will add up if their posts are meaningless.
