their is someone on my friends list that keeps starting the same discussion over and over again. i check my mail when i first get on the computer and yesterday they had started the same discussion 3 times just with different title. i thought maybe it was a mistake at first maybe he hit the buttom to many times or something but when i checked his profile page he had started the same discussion like 10 times. what would you do?

I don't know if we see the same discussion on a certain friend but I was browse that discussion awhile ago but never I posted anything on the discussion for I don't know how to answer. As for me I like the way she responded to my discussion for she post sensible answer and as a token of appreciation I try to respond to her discussion too but I can't see any discussion which fit in my ideas so I just ignore it. Maybe that's all I can do for now Ignore it for she is a nice friend and this is the first time she did it maybe I try to consider it as a warning sign and will keep an eye on her discussion and maybe the rest will depend on how she will post another discussion on the coming days.

Such people have nothing better to do. Or it is just a glitch. If I choose to answer, it would just be for one of them.

I've seen this happen as well. So far I've ignored it. I mean it's one thing to post similar things but are different at the same time. For example posting one about Vampire movies and then posting one about Vampire books. They are similar but still very different. However I've seen some that will post "Favorite song by this group" "Favorite album by this group" "Favorite member of this music group" and so on. It should have been done as one post not as several different ones since they do all relate to the same music group. I think if I saw a friend that continually did it, not jsut a bad day type thing I would remove them from my friends list.

I have also noticed this over the last few days. I have a friend who keeps posting pretty much the same discussions but the wording in it is a little bit different. To me it is the same topic or discussion. I don't answer those kinds of discussions if there is more than one of them. I will pick one of them and respond to and delete the rest from them that come in. I can't waist time responding to the same thing that mylot will eventually delete. I'm thinking about not responding to any of those because mylot might delete every one of them that look the same from the same person.

First I would report this person to myLot then I would delete them as a friend. Any one posting to those kinds of post will loose thier points when myLot catches up with them.
