i can't stand liars and i've noticed quite a few here. does it ever bother you when you see someone's posts that you know are lies. one person says she's married in one post and the next one she says she's not, she has a boyfriend, then she's going out on dates with different people. then she has a baby and then in her responses to other people she doesn't have a baby. one says she works the other one she's in school. it just drives me nuts. i just find this really annoying. especially when i started off posting meaningful things to help this person with her problems and i find out she's been lying. how would this make you feel?

That is terrible...I wish you would tell me who it is, so that I do not post to her either...I do not know half the time, if the people are telling the truth, unless that person turns out to be a spammer, then I know that he/she has just been copying everyone elses discussions...I hope that eventually people will report her, you could do that also, for all of her discussions and get it solved that way. The mylot admin will probably remove her, if many people complain.

thanks for the response. well i don't think i'll report lying. i'm not sure they will kick someone off for being a liar. i'm just trying to ignore these types of people now.

oh, hmmm, they probably would if you say that they are spamming or something, because if it is not real, it probably is spam.

I really admire your skill and being a good observant in the forum that was one of a talent to identified who are liar. As a memberof myLot I really want my friends to be honest as they can be but we can't really knew what is the identity of each member because we really not know what life they live on real life. As for myself I really tell what life I lead and broadcast to the whole forum I'm happily married and even made a discussion and post pictures to prove that because if I want honest answer I should be the first one to tell all things in me on a honest way. It is really annoying to find some myLot members who are lying just to be notice and be known or be recognize. Good discussion keep it up!

Like you I do not like liars but they do think they are great. I do not know who you are speaking of but I guess they are ones to ignore posting to. Only wish that I knew so I would not waste my time in trying to give them advise. Have a good day...

i wish i could tell you because this is getting reduculous but i don't think it would be right for me to name names. but now this person who is 18 says she has a 17 year old. i keep checking her posts cause it's fascinating but frustrating at the same time. but i'm glad other people have noticed this about her and are posting things on her posts as well.

It takes all kinds of people to make the world go around, I agree with you and either not answer their posts or look up their profile. mind you that can be a complete fabrication, If you think about it they are rather pathetic souls as the real world would shun this sort of behavior, and they are sick enough that they can make believe that they are normal, Well you are what you are, and it is going to come out no matter how hard you want to be other wise. Remember that the thing that you fear the most is what runs your life.

I think I came across the person you are talking about. I answered the question and looked at the profile and it was all wrong, so called her a liar on the page. Do not care it makes me sick to deal with such people

well people in mylot seems to have multiple personalities... as to income u have post in any discussions so i guess few people assume themselves being in many situations... i guess if there was no money incoming matter in this site then such thing might not have happened...

when someone does this, it makes me feel like they are abusing the system. like they are only posting random questions that pop into their head. just so they can make some money. it makes me feel a little cheated to, because i post questions i want answered and i want to know what people think.

The world is full of liars and unfortunately, mylot is not immune to those liars. I've noticed that quite a bit myself. You really can't do too much about it besides either reply to their posts or ignore them completely so they don't get more replies. Personally, I find some of the liars funny. Just because I can't wait to see what on earth they come up with next.

People sometimes lie to get attention, even worse, to get paid... Don't feel so bad about it... I have said this to another person who had a post just the same as yours. The post itself is not just for the one who created it, People respond because they can relate to it, somehow, you have helped other people without you knowing it... And the most important thing is... SO WHAT IF THEY LIED... IT WON'T MAKE YOU A LESSER PERSON. You've done your part.. you've been honest, you tried to help... and that's exactly it... have a nice day poppop!! smile....

I usually only respond to my friends' discussions. In order to be my friend, your story must ring true. If I notice inconsistancies of the type that you have mentioned, I will delete that person as my friend. I feel that posting lies is simply a form of online manipulation in order to receive more responses and to toy with other users. I don't play those games.

I too answered one of that particular posters posts with a heartfelt thought out answer. And then went to their profile. Wow. At this point I am just reading each new post for the entertainment value. You could do an entire talk show series if half of them were true, especially the having a teenager when their age is 18. It does bother me that people post just for the sake of posting. I mean if you post something you have never experienced just to start a discussion, that is one thing if you aren't claiming it happened to you and crying out for advice. But to say all of these things and request advice, I think that is just thoughtless.

OMG! Thank you I'm not crazy!! LOL I thought something was fishy with this chic too, I just didn't want to go there. Can you believe she had the audacity to start a discussion about liars on Mylot? I dunno what her motives are for all of this, maybe she needs some mental help.

WOW!!!! I don't know what to say. I am fairly new here but, that really blow me away when I read this. Then I did go look at the her profile!!! Wow! I just couldn't believe how blatant she was with her lies. Yes, I could see why it makes you angry. I don't really care for liars either. Thanks for the heads up though. Know I realize I should be looking out for things like this.

Here's hug for you poppoppop111, I hope you're not as furious as before you post about this issue: liars.:) I also went look on the link you gave as an example. lol Being honest, I didn't put too much heart on responding people's discussion here. I mean in a real life, I could find liars, so what am I to expect, here?!:( I'm too focus on the answering the discussion, and have a little time to know whether they are lying or honest. It's all about me, me, me ...aaah.. silly selfish me. For all I know, I just response and make a discussion out of what I feel like doing (of course try not to lie, because I can only guarantee myself, but not others to tell the truth). I hope you are feeling much better now, poppoppop111. All the best for you.

Lighten up. Its not like this site is Dear Abby or anything. Sure, Ive seen them, too, but why get your blood pressure up over nothing? The idea is to post and answer questions for a discussion. This is not some official help site. So relax, laugh at the answers like I do and avoid giving yourself a heart attack.

There is so much to talk about, I don't even know why people would want to lie. I think that's sad that people have to lie about their lives. I don't really understand the point of being on here if you are going to lie. I really should pay more attention though.

I too hate liars and I know how you feel. Next time just relax and as soon as you come to know that a person is lying, I think that time you should give it back to her, then and there.

I do not lie it is just to hard to do. It is too much work to lie and I am no good at it. When I respond to a discussion here I speak the truth and that is easy for me to do because it is easy to tell the truth. With a lie you always have to remember what you said and to who you said it. I do not know why people have to lie especially on here.
