Here's another one

This person, whose profile says 27 years old, is asking for medical advice on multiple problems she says she has. Sounds like she is reading a medical book and posting about every disease and/or symptom she comes across. She also asks about help for her 18 year old daughter. So we are to believe she had a child at 9 years old? This could be legit, I've heard of children having children and it would make sense there would be potential for a lot of medical problems, but something about this member's posts just don't ring true.

I just read this and had responded to her discussion trying to help since I have medical training. When I went back I though you had been a little harsh. The I checked her profile. Man people will write about anything. I understand trying to make post but to lie about ones on child or lack there of. You should check out the other ones.

This person has over 2000 thousand posts and all of them are about or another disease that they just suffered from or need advice on. It is truly crazy.

Just another spammer, one of those people who think all you have to do to make money here is post a lot of discussions, even if they're pure garbage. It's easy to spot them, and I just go right past them. Why waste your time and help people like that make money?

Usually I would just report them, but since there was a very small chance this person is actually this ill, and has a chronically ill child who is only 9 years younger than her, and a mother who just had surgery (they say truth is stranger than fiction,) I wanted to see what other members thought. My reason for reporting people I think are violating the guidelines is because I am tired of wasting my time sifting through their garbage posts, 2 and 3 and 4 pages at a time to get to a discussion with any real substance, and I hate time composing a thoughtful response to their post only to find out they are just spamming to make a few cents. Wouldn't it be great if myLot could have two sites, one for people who want to earn money for honest, thought provoking discussions and one for people to make a few cents while they scum up a site with nonsense posts that no one wants to read and only their fellow spammers will respond to? OK, enough ranting for now.

I saw this fool's posts and wanted to tell her to get to a physician! Geeze, if someone is THAT ill with THAT many symptoms and diseases, they need immediate medical attention. Maybe she does have an adopted daughter or step-daughter. Who knows. Perhaps her biggest medical problem is mental illness. While I am a fairly new member of MyLot, I find that alot of the topics posted are flat garbage. It seems that you can post fifty, a hundred or more posts one right after the other asking questions such as: what is your favorite color? Then, what is your favorite food? Then, what is your favorite song?

Well.. you can post a bunch of garbage discussions like that but chances are if you do the moderators are going to get complaints and eventually you'll be banned from mylot and your discussions erased. Which means everyone who has responded to the lame discussion will lose the cents that they earned from it. And these same people will then come and post lame discussions about why their earnings went down when they should have expected it to when they bothered to answer the post.

i guess there are hundred of liars on mylot, there is no way you can change that! for me, i read a discussion and answer the question if i can! if i found out there is a real cheater ofcourse i will tell mylot, but in this case i think i don't want to spend my time on it! ofcourse i don't like these people, but you will find them everywhere and if this is the way they want to earn money so be it!

i think people have nothing to type, but want to type because they're here for earning some cash. so they look around, and whatever sparks their fancy, a tv commercial, internet banner, book on the table...they have a topic. i agree with you. i take a great deal of questions with an element of skepticism. you have to.

IF you are talking about the person that is doing the copy and paste then I know which you are talking about. Someone else posted one about a person doing copy and paste its titled something with CHEAT CHEAT CHEAT just saw it. I went to the profile and saw 27 with 18 year old daughter. However THIS person (sounds like it) is a male not a female. Um lying? I am way confused. NO matter what 9 is kinda young to have a kid. Is that even possible? I guess it could be but still? I think they are making up crap. They should be reported. I'd never just discuss anything. All mine have been about things I cared about or was concerned. Then my random one about best reponse and responding to one with one picked got the MOST of all my topics too funny! :)) and it was like I wont get any comments... They should fake. Should be reported. Whats their name? I am just curious if its the same person whose name was redrose something (I believe)

Yep, that's the person and it was me that started the other discussion you mentioned. It seems that Mylotter has managed to rile quite a few of us up by being particularly prolific in the past couple of days and made themselves too noticeable.

REPORT THEM!! I have and am looking for more proof. They are taking payments away from the honest posters. I love stalking the cheaters and have not had one to watch in 6 weeks.

I see what you mean and i did a quick search and found... http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/archive/index.php/t-5187.html her post is copies word for word! I have noticed that there are a few people on here who do the same thing, you would think that if they were going to copy they would at least put the question in their own words and not just copy and paste.

Did you ever stop to think that some of those questions could be hypothetical questions? Who said the questions have to be about the person asking them? But than again the person could be pasting the question from places like Dear Abby. So I don't really know.

Okay I firest recived this discussion in my email. I responded. That was shocked when I went back and read the thread. So please direguard the questions I asked before. People like that I would just avoid. If they arescammers they will eventually get caught. All I can say if you see them voilating my lots guidelines. Make sure you report them and mark their discussions as a minus.

Oh bother. Just what we need... someone lying and trying to get sympathy. Either they are wanting the attention or they have nothing better to write about and are doing as you say - looking in a medical book just to have something to write about.

Oh I just realized that people have been reporting this person. Good show!! Thing that bothers me about people like this; is the fact that their posts will eventually get deleted (at least we hope they will) and everyone who has replied loses their count. That is something I don't agree with at all but that is another topic all together.

lolz it seems that are you used to know every detail this person is.. Maybe she is just doing a lot of discussion and posting just to earn some money. He just makes issues here.. I hate person such as he is. Maybe he is not only making fool to many but of of all to himself.. I dont even imagine searching just to post a topic? Well i guess the reason why we are here is to have a unique topic and deliver it in a unique way to enjoy by the members and those who wish and visit this site.. anything that is being copied and searched shows being a copywriter.. No wonder if some of his topics have been a topic already by some of the members here.. Im very sasd for this

I think people will post anything to get a discussion going and I have run across this many times, people posting that they have grown children when they are barely grown themselves. I just don't respond to their lies and move on to the next one.

It seems that this person is posting about things that actually has not happened with her, and still she is doing this, just to increase the number of her Mylot discussions. Now, we can't do anything about it, unless the Mylot authorities warn this member. Also, we can't say this member anything, unless she posts something illegal or of any mature content. But yes, we can do only one thing. People who don't like her ways may not respond to her discussions in future, that's it.

I am all over this one. I have reported him/her 6 times for copy/paste and provided the link to mylot and the discussions also. I can not believe they have been here this long with out getting caught.

There is alot of this going on in MyLot, but nothing is being done about it, so all we can do is either skip their posts or reply as we would to anyone else's. It's a shame that people can come on and lie, but there's really not a rule against it.

well, there are some people here who will do anything including cheating (copying and pasting other people's discussions, articles, etc) just to earn some points and cash which i find it really annoying... while other people try really hard and in a honest way to boost their earnings and ratings... hope these people will face disciplinary actions from mylot admin soon...
