Removed discussions

So I just logged on and noticed that every single one of my discussions in the "make extra money" section were deleted. I have no clue why. I don't post referral links in my discussions and I don't break any rules. It's not a HUGE deal, but it is annoying. My earnings dropped too, which is also annoying. I'm thinking this may be one of those troll attacks people talk about so much. I noticed the other day that my rating suddenly dropped like 15 points in about 15 minutes. Oh well...

As far as I know, having discussions you start or respond to is the only way you can lose earnings or posts. Now the ratings are a different story. Trolls can cause that to happen. But you will get them up again as you are more active. Ratings and stars fluctuate regularly, most of us are used to that. Earnings are annoying when they drop though. You just have to be careful about the topics you discuss and you will usually stay under the radar. Good luck with your future posting.

Thanks. I am pretty careful about the topics I respond to and even more careful about those I start. I know a lot of discussions are removed in that topic due to people leaving referral links in the posts, but I make sure not to do that and I just tell people they can find them in my profile. My rating has started to go back up slightly so that's good I guess...

That really stinks. I've heard a lot of this happening lately here on MyLot. I've pretty much stayed away from the "make extra money" section, because that seems to be one of the most targeted sections here on MyLot. I hope this stops happening to you. I gave you a positive rating.

Thanks! Yeah I was figuring that section would be one of the most highly monitored... I use it to gain referrals though, and to answer peoples' questions about making money online. I haven't broken any rules so it's just weird that they would delete my discussions. *shrug*
