Are you a mylot stalker?

I'll admit it, I follow people around on mylot, responding to not only the discussions they started, but the ones they replied to. I wonder sometimes if they think I'm creepy. I've caught myself doing it in the past before, but over the last couple of days I've really noticed how much I do it. It's partially because I enjoy talking to those people, partially because it's a way to find good discussions, and perhaps a little because I'm just that type of obsessive person. =p Anyone else out there want to admit to this? Or do you have a mylot stalker yourself? Is it flattering or scary, if you do?

LOL no, not to that point. I did try to respond to my friends' discussions whenever I like it. They don't always respond to my topics anyway. I think it's OK, you're obsessive in a good way :) No I don't think I have a stalker here, if I do I guess I'll make more money by getting responses to my topics :)

"I think it's OK, you're obsessive in a good way" Thanks for that. =) That's a good point, having a stalker could make you more money. Hmmm... weird thought.

:) only in mylot I guess. If I have a stalker, this person would be responding to most of my discussions. I would probably have no discussions without response. We got paid for every topic that is responded, it's not a lot, but still something.

Well I'm sure most people won't mind you stalking them, since you are contributing to the discussion :)

Yeah, I'm sure they don't mind, but it just seems funny sometimes the extent to which I do it. =p I try to post to the people that leave interesting posts on my discussions too. It's only fair.

You mylot stalker! Omg I added you as a friend? Eww. You probably do it because you feel good about responding to the same people in order to get to a normal state w. the site. It is just like anything else. You go to the same parking spot everyday, you go to the same store, or you want to see the same people in a certain place or group all the time. It makes you feel normal N good. It gives you satisfcation, but it makes me be a lil scared of you :P.

With all 82,000+ members on here I don't know how anyone would notice that you were doing that. I do it too sometimes! I like to see what discussions that my friends are responding too, sometimes they are ones I am interested in. I usually find myself responding to my friends discussions though, and in doing that I don't have much time to stalk others :) I do it occasionally though.

Thanks for your response! You have a good point about the number of members here making it hard to figure out. Maybe I'm lucky and no one will catch me. *giggles*

Absolutely nothing wrong with what you said/did my friend. When I get bored, I do stalk like you. Like you rightly pointed out, it *is* a good way to find discussions to answer if you have friends of common interests. There are really too few discussions worth answering and the situation seems to get worse by the day.

Thanks for your response! You're right, it can be hard to find good discussions to answer! Too much of the same thing all the time on here. And I have friends that seem to be just awesome at finding the best ones. =)

Stalking? Stalking? uhhh, no. Not me. No way! Well, maybe a little stalking. Was that you that I was stalking? hehehehe I usually check out someone's profile if I see a good post to see if there are any other good posts. And if there, then I will put in a friend request. Now I will be lurking in the shadows but not stalking. laterz

I am not a mylot stalker. I don't even think I would notice if there was one. I am too busy trying to find good topics like this to add to. Great topic! I gave you a +.

LOL, you are too cute! Thank you for the laugh I sure needed it! Yeah I would have to say that there are some that I follow around so to speak. I find that some people here seem to start discussions that interest me so I tend to check them out first. So maybe I am a bit of a stalker as well. :)

*giggles* I'm glad I could help. And of course I'm cute!!! I haven't seen you around much actually. Have you been on less or have I just been not paying attention? (If it's the latter, I'm sorry.)

Some of my friends and I are guilty of this. We are more guilty of doing it within our own discussions though. On some days though when there are some good discussions going on here it does seem as though there is some stalking going on, whether it's intentional or not who knows

Thanks for your response! That's a good point too, that it could not be intentional and could just be because you like the same type of discussions, or that the discussion is so good you just all replied to it.

I find it flattering when I find people following me around mylot lol. Since they're harmless..they can't really hurt you by following you online..it just means they either like or dislike you. I do it for a few people I'm not friends with on here as well..I just like their things, and I'm often scrambling for posts anyways..so..lol. I don't do it alot, just a little heh.

Thanks for your response! I find it pretty flattering too, though there are only a couple people I can think of who have followed me around like that.

I do this too. Especiaially when I have hard time finding an interesting discussion to respond to.Some one will respond tto something I'm interested in and I will find some one elses response is intregueing and I will check to see whee they are from then check the discussions they have responded to and I will find some that interest me ans so I respond.

Not a stalker. Just doing what Mylot is here for really. I am not able to spend as much time here as I'd like or I'd be doing the same thing without a doubt.

It's not scary, nor flattering... It's nice... If you ask me... It's pretty hard to find people you enjoy talking with, and when you have found them, you want to see what they are up to next... myLot stalking is fun (here I am doing it), interesting, and community building if you ask me... So... keep up those binoculars, and don't fall behind. :) :) Nice post by the way. :)

LOL thats funny "I am stalking you". just kidding. Anyways no I dont stalk people I reply to the subjects that really grab my attention and alot of those I am probly too hot headed over like religion and politics. I seen someone else say that alot of people on here give you a bad rating if you dont agree to their topics. I expect I will have a crappy rating for a long time to come..lol. I do go back and reply to comments added just because I think its the decent thing to do not stalking but if you are really here to chat than you might take a couple of rounds back and forth for both sides to make a their points.

yes I am a stalker for sure. I find this happens on really good topics. The ones where we all have our own opinions. We can learn to see it from a different view. I love to get caught up in a good post.

I don't think I have any stalkers and I hope no one thinks I'm stalking them. I think it's nice to recognize familiar faces/names and I am more likely to respond or to try to respond to a name I recognize. Some people do appear more often then others in my discussions and I am always glad to see them.

stalker - a stalker follows the person they want all the time
Yeah.. Hehehe.. Just kidding.. It's just my habit to reply to my friends' discussions every now and then. There are times when I almost know their recent personal life just by reading their discussions.
