OK, really starting to annoy me where I find something interesting.... so I comment... and either get a comment that makes no sense at all or a one word answer.... so my question is....Do you think MYLOT should enable some software/search that'll remove comments in discussion that contain less than say 5 or 10 words?

There are guidelines and no one seems to read them. I have answered several discussion on how to increase earnings. If they would read the guidelines then there would be no need for such discussions. Now I am thankful that I have earned while informing them of what they should already know. Just imagine if they would just read upon entering. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest!

Hi Willowlady...glad it's not just me then....sometimes I feel really tempted to answer them again with one-word answers and they'll realise how frustrating it can be..but then that makes me no better than them

So true... those one word or off topic responses deserve a minus sign. Of course then they don't realize why their star thing number goes down. Would be better if they could learn. Thanks much for responding to me.

every one wants to post more and more comments and to it takes long time for them to type you see.thats why they answer in a sentence so that their posts increases and their money too.I think most of them answer in my lot just for gaining more and more money and not for sharing knowledge.....

Hi Anshnav, I think so too.....guess they'll soon realise that just putting boring posts is not going to make them popular or even vaguely interesting. Personally I would prefer to see Mylot as somewhere that is a resourceful website.

I don't get this too much in mylot, but I have seen it on other peoples comments, lets face it alot of people are here just to earn money and they do that buy just responding to the first discussion they see little realising they're not going to earn much money from putting in one word replies, they are generally the moaners that you will see later on saying 'why do I not get any replies?' or 'why can't I get any friends'

I think it would be nice, but what about the discussions you respond to where no one even bother's to go back and say thank you or answer your question, I think people should take the time read the discussion, if they have an interest then comment, if they don't know anything about it just leave it alone, I get these and I always ask them why did you respond then. They never answer me but it makes no sense. Yeah My Lot should enable something to remove comments in the discussions, add an extra mark when you rate, to delete them ourselves or something.

Hi Minerc, thanks for your input.... I know exactly what you mean about people responding to your answers... it's only common courtesy. I also agree with you very strongly about people replying just for the sake of it....it's very annoying......if you've got no interest or nothing constructive to add then don't bother. Suppose we can just hope that MyLot will enable removal software to delete the silly one word answers.

I think maybe they should have mods or something, because from what I've heard they don't. I guess one word answers do annoy me, because it makes you think that the people are just posting to earn money, but they really aren't contributing anything to the discussion. I hate when people answer a discussion with I don't know. If you don't know, then don't respond to the question, because you are not contributing at all!
