Mylot Stalking made easy

United States
February 20, 2008 4:00pm CST
Well let's give a big hand to the new my activity screen that enables everyone to track exactly where you have been and exactly what you have done. Can anyone say here let me just hand you a copy of everything that I have just done. LOL!! So how many of you think that this just made those mylot stalkers jobs a lot easier? Question? Concerns? Thoughts? My one friend didn't think that I would post it. Ha I did. ;P

I think it's ridiculous. Not only is all that information on your profile, but all sorts of 'activity' appears on the home page now. I can see who added whom as a friend, who got a best response, who uploaded a picture. It just seems like a whole lot of unnecessary information. I'd rather see the news and blogs.

Yeah ok you posted it. I'm over the initial shock but I have already ranted all I am going to rant about this. I learned real quick that the squeaky wheel doesn't get the grease around here. It gets removed.

yep so defeats the purpose of deleting something. Now lets give everyone little snippets so that they can get all tick off with really no reason because they don't have all the information. Wait how is that any different from now ..LOL!!Oh well I guess I'll have to learn how to make my stalker box pretty. LOL!!!

Yeah, I agree with you on this one. 'Hey guys, let's see where I've been and what I've been doing.' I'm not sure that mylot stalkers really worry me so much as... I don't know. Even though it's a public network site, I don't see the reason why everyone needs to see where everything is, all at once.

It's very rare for me to go against the admin's decisions here and it's very often for me to air it out, since I usually send it to them through PM. But now, I've seen that most of the members are not as well IN for this type of upgrade they made. I can't even consider it an upgrade, but just a mere add-on which is annoying. I'd be more glad if they'd address our questions more, than be deceived by this type of petty annoyances. I don't really mind being stalked or tracked, as long as they mess around with it. But this is not that one we expect they'd do, I'd be more impressed if they'd just solve the problems here concerning us members..

I cannot tell what'll happen now, though I can see that this site is starting to attract other people but still in a way that most of us are not approving of. I just hope that this does benefit us in the future, before it's too late.. The way I see it, they (mylot) are doing their best to become a more commercialized site than what a community was supposed to be. One thing I benefited from this so-called upgrade was, I can now customize my profile again. And with that, I took the opportunity for my "activity" to be hidden from stalkers in some way.. Should I be happy, thankful? I think not, this is just a part of their diversionary tactics to focus our attentions away from the real issue..

Raijin, I already spent two hours trying every lay-out! The minute I logged in, I thought, I went to a different profile page! It was a mess to look at it. The Admin did try to leave the lay-out I have chosen for my profile. But, from the many new stuffs added, you can barely read the words! If you remember, I have chosen a clean, animated lay-out. And that took me hours to find it!!!! Very frustrating really. I liked that lay-out but I have to say goodbye to it because I can't read whatever's in my profile, with all those animations going on at the background. I liked some of the new changes, but for some, no. When I log in here, I usually upload lots of pictures of flowers. And usually, I upload more than 20. And now, because of the activity sortie, all of those 20+ uploaded pictures are adding up to the "clutter". I don't know...maybe we all just need some time to get used to these new changes. But they can be a real eye sore.....

I don't like it. Even though its nice to see what my friends have posted, I can easily get that info from their own profile if I really wanted to. I don't particularly want others to read what I have posted either LOL Its too busy on my profile page now and i tried to see if i could delete it but there is no option to do that. I don't like the interests posted down the page and tried to minimize it but I can't change that as well. Eh I was hoping there was a spell checker and or a way to change a post if you made a mistake or typo error.. oh well!

See I was hoping that they would make a spell checker of somesort something that would be useful. but they didn't and the continuation of your post now to you see how much easier it is to follow someone around the lot if you really want to .. That is my problem if your not my friend and your trying to discredit everything I say or just bad mouth and attack me everywhere I go here's a map of where I've been and where I'll be. It just doesn't sit right. Have a nice day and thank you for your response.

I agree with your points there too. I have never had issues with someone following me around but I have heard of others that have had that done to them.

I didn't think about it, but it makes sense. It will make easier. I was thinking that it is for friends activity only, not all users activity. Correct me if I am wrong. I don't mind good friends stalking me, but I know what you mean. We are all very unhappy with latest upgrade that looks like downgrade.

Let's just say I'm stalking you and want to harass you on everything you commented on all I have to do is go to your page and it's right out there for me. So it makes stalking a whole lot easier..

I had similar thoughts when I seen that and I have to say that eith most people I don't mind them seeing what I am doing but what about if you cross paths with a troll? Of course you would post this - it is an honest opinion! xxx

Thanks mummymo, I appreciate it and I feel really bad for those who end up crossing paths with a troll they have to deal with them constantly knowing where they are. Well have a nice day and take care.

Yeah, that creeps me out. I don't want people to know where I've just been, whose profile I just left a comment on, and be able to track every activity I do on mylot. I don't know how much good it will do, but I'm going to e-mail mylot about that. It's creepy.

good luck but I think we'll be ignored, so far I noticed something no matter how much we complain they do the opposite of what we ask for. LOL!!!

I hadn't even noticed this until I read this post but it sure does make life easier for the trolls and stalkers, doesn't it? Oh, well, now we can't complain that they're wasting so much time doing their dirty deeds because it won't take them nearly as long. Annie

LOL!!! I see your point they made it easier and faster for them so they can go back to having a life. LOL!! I really wish they could have given us something that we particularly asked for .. Would that promote more good will and a better willingness to get referels from us?

I can't say that I've thought about anyone "stalking" me. Maybe I just haven't had the joy of such an experience yet. LOL. And no, all you you would be stalkers and trolls, that is not an invitation to begin. I don't like the added sortie either. Although I love you all, I don't really think its my business to know where you've been and where you are going. I prefer the discussions I've responded to sortie. It makes it easier for me to keep track of who and what I've answered. I hope there is enough flack about this new system to where they will change it back.

Good for you. You are talking about those myLotters who go and browse the quality of one's posts and know all the ins and outs about some and have a group of minions, to whom they report on a certain member, and those who give us tests before they want us as friends, don't you? I.e. if your post does not meet their high exalted standards and if you do not agree with them, whole heartedly, there is no need for friendship. And do you think I am going to be afraid to post anything or not to tell what I consider important? No way.

Lol, very funny and good for you for not being afraid to post this. I personally don't like the new activity screen, maybe because I'm not used to it but it's not a problem for me, atleast I hope it will never be either. As for stalkers, those mylotter "stalkers" have way too much time on their hands and need to really just do something better with their time.

This new idea of mylot will create a lot of interest ..good or bad..it still brings in more interest on mylot..change is always going to find resistance as most people are in a comfort zone and do not like change... I think i see a positive change but it is too soon to tell..but it sure makes things more interesting..just reading the post..the jury is still out..we shall see

that is true, i didnt really think of that...do you think this will lesson the use of mylot? i see this as a safety concern too.

I see this as a big headache and it might turn into a safety issue I have no clue if they ever thought this the whole way through...

That is a great point. I don't like the new homepage. I don't like seeing all of that. I like looking at the discussions. This is like the new myspace homepage. But at least there you have the choice to go back to the old style.

I wish they gave us a choice of the classic or new here to because this ain't working for me either!!!!

I don't like it as it is the most pointless thing and as you say it of most use to the stalkers. I can't believe anyone would want this, how big is their head that they want everyone to know where they have been and what they've posted ffs.

I understand completely what your saying but you know and i know that mylot changes are not always for the best and I just can't believe they made it easier for us to get berated by someone else.
