Leaving mylot. Goodbye folks!

March 28, 2007 4:02am CST
Alot of people only seem to read the main heading of a post. And answer based on that. Now I was wondering if this was a really synical attitude that I have developed reading through posts or if it really is true! I couldn't think of another post that is likely to grab peoples attention! So if you have read this you will either agree that it is true that people tend not to read the discussion... and if you didn't... Well I'm not going anywhere! I'm having too much fun! LOL! Hope this causes no offence and have a good day everyone!!

lol, I like your post. I actually do read all the posts that I want to comment on, so you won't be able to chatch me on this one. I know that it will be very hard for anyone to leave myLot. It is so addictive. but so far I enjoy everything about it and also don't want to go anywhere.

There is at least one on the next page that proves that not everyone reads more than the headlines.

Lol . by the way you scared me a lot. I have few friends on mylot and you are among best of them. I was very nervous when I saw the heading. You have no right to scare the hell out of your friends lol . Anyway even I'm enjoying out here. Nice to have a friend like you.

I admit even I'm used of answering discussions after reading headline if it's too lengthy.Come on I can't read thousand of words. generally I reply to friends's discussions only but if they are going to give a long discussion which I'm not interested in then I write by just reading the headline.

LOL! You don't get rid of me that easy! If a discussion is lengthy or not really to your tastes, I tend to skim read it. That way you get the important bits. If it really has no interest to me at all, I will just leave it and go on to a different one! And you are one of my fave friends also! :)

Yup, you are right, many just read the heading and begin to type some totally off-the-topic reply. I have had this happen so many times. To think, they are earning for doing this too. So very sad. I had a topic once with the headline 'don't take a bath' and yet, the discussion was about skin care. You don't know how many blasted me for lack of hygiene!!!

Well, it's nice to know it isn't true lol Yes I noticed that a lot of people respond depending on the title or from their first impression about the topic, I guess they just want to make as much posts as possible in their online time to maximize their earnings but it isn't fair, also i noticed many people starting discussions and never come back to read and comment on responses, they just leave all questions unanswered and it's frustrating. I try to make as much posts as possible too especially when I'm trying to reach minimum payout level before the end of the month but i make sure to read everything correctly first. I want to make money but also want to make it fair.

Yes I do too. I enjoy going back and looking at the responses. I even go back to some discussion threads I have responded to. Some of them really make me laugh. Thanks for responding!

Yes, there are so many people is mylot replying the post base on the topic only. For me, I do not. Because I am not sure about what is the post about if I just read the title of the discussion, and how can we answer to that post? What do others think?

Its true. I'm doing the same thing too. Don't have much ideas on new discussion. I read discussions just to gain my knowledge. :)

Well, I have to say such phenomenon does exists. Many people just read the headlines and begin to respond without further understanding of what the discussion is acturally about. That's irresponsible attitude, both to the discussion-starter and to the responser. We know that quantity does not matter much in mylot, and what works is the quality. So, those who just read the headlines could not respond something accurate. They aim at earning much by responding much. Such action will not bring them benefits, cause mylot staff are on guard all the time. best wishes to all!

Ha Ha nice one there! I agree that the heading of the post is the main attention getter - how else is one supposed to make the discussion inviting to others?! I, however do read the entire discussion before I respond and i'm glad you're not going anywhere! lol

My God, how can one respond just only by reading the headline? I do not. I generally read it from the beginning to the end.

Hi mummyofthree, Glad your not leaving..mylot is a great place to get advice, hear peoples opinions and basically just have fun...I can tell by this post you were looking to have fun. It's sad but true lots of people just respond without reading. Personally I wish I was paid for the reading I do here rather than the posting...I would have alot more chashola than I do now.LOL. glad to know I'll be seeing you around mylot in the future..

LOL good one :) I'm sure that most people do read the lines under the title at least. How can you answer based on the title alone? I do read the complete post, and I read the answers to. I"m afraid I don't do it in the proper order though. I am supposed to read the discussion starter and then the responses so far and finally answer myself. I tend to read the discussion and answer first. I do this because sometimes I have something in mind for the answer but if I start reading the other answers my response can be influenced by what I read. So I read the post, answer and then read all the responses. Still, I read LOL

hahaha what a great idea for a discussion. I do feel it is true, very few people actually do read the blurb of a discussion under the headline. However, why is this a problem? Maybe if discussion headlines were always related to the discussion, this level of confusion wouldnt happen at all. Just a thought. blessed be

There are a lot of people who only read a few words and then comment. It is sad because there is always so much more to a post than the first few lines! Glad to hear you aren't going anywhere ;)
