Are you more TRUSTING of MYLOTTERS with a HIGHER score or STAR than NEWBIES?

Call me sketical of the newbies since so many have spammed me with money making deals (usually the ones with a very low score and no star system), but I seem to be more trusting and want to be friends more with the people that have larger scores and higher numbers? Are the numering and rating system affecting our determination of who are our friends on myLot, what do you think?

We came here for earning money, not to trust any body. Trust myLot and the work then only we gain momentum. Otherwise we are out of our way and gets out of the site.

I don't know about you, but the money made on myLot has been insignificant in paying for anything of value, sure I came here for the money making opportunity, but once learned that the money was nothing and I enjoyed the discussions, from your score I would hope you would too.

I am not skeptical. If I get messaged about money making deals more than once I delete that friend. It doesn't matter if they are new or not. I look forward to making friends with people that have good discussions.

This is a good question. ;-) I try to keep an open mind and base my opinion on the response or discussion I am reading. However I do admit that I am usually more disposed towards those having a good rating. If you have a high post count and good rating, I am inclined to think better of you. If you have a bad rating but a high post count, this would in fact backfire in that I would trust you less - the implication being something must be very wrong. You have been very active yet no one seems to be liking you. :P This said, I still try to be fair to everyone in my opinions. ^^

When someone requests me as a friend, I still go to their profile, and see what is there, especially if they have a low number. I make a judgement by what they reply to or to the discussions they start. Sometimes just by their interests. I speculate on why they are choosing me.

I am a little more wary of the low score with no stars yet, but we all started out as newbies so I give them a chance. Some of them turn out to be really great with really good discussions.

I am alittle wary because I would say out of the last 6 newbies I have accepted as friends, 4 spammed me. I have deleted them. I am still going to accept them to be friends but if the spam me I will be removing them.
