I do not like it when I make a discussion and the people that respond to me do not respond to my question. I can fully understand if you are from another country and did not understand the question but thought you had and chose to answer. I am always kind in my responses and try to tell the person that they misunderstood. I'm just getting frustrated because people from the United States or that understand english very well as their grammar and wording is very accurate, respond without reading. PLEASE READ FIRST! I am not going to deny that I have not read without responding but I have at least tried to give relevance to why I have responded in this manner. Some people do not even give relevance to why they have responded in the manner that they did. My feelings are if you do not understand the question, ask, if you don't want to ask don't answer. Even if it's a slither of a doubt then either ask or don't answer. If the discussion is marked Serious discussion and you do not feel that you can be serious in your answer, then don't respond. If it's clearly a fun discussion that warrants a variety of answers to several questions or even to just one, then go ahead and answer. I am in no way trying to insult your manner of responding to myself or even to other people, but I feel that this point needed to made and that I needed to clarify what I and my fiance as well as I am sure other people will want in a response. For all those who have felt that my responses were lacking, then I do want to express that I am sorry and will try to respond to you in a manner that you see fit. I appreciate everyone who has read this thoroughly and await your responses. Have a Great and Wonderful Day and Good luck!

I know what you mean baby,lately I have gotten several responses from people that had nothing to do with what I asked,and I agree if someone is from another county, they have more leeway because they do not always understand the English language,and I agree it seems a lot of people from the United States will respond without reading,and it is very frustrating,and I might not read the whole discussion before I respond,but as I am responding,I will read through it to make sure I have not missed anything important about the discussion ,and I agree if you do not understand the question than ask,and if the discussion is marked serious,but you are a sarcastic person,and feel you can not be serious then do not respond to the discussion,and I agree the point needed to be made,because both of us,and probably lots of other mylotters are getting tired of responses that have nothing to do with the discussions,I love you,and Happy Posting.

I think that there is a fine line between sarcasm and what some people view was comedy. I don't think that a lot of people realize that sarcasm is not always the best thing for a serious discussion. Some people will not see that the person is wanting a serious response. It's just one of those things you have to be intune with or know the person. I appreciate your response to me and I hope that both of us will get better responses with more quality and even quantity. I love you too baby!

Yeah I agree there is a fine line between sarcasm and what people view as being comical,and I agree some people probably do not realize that being sarcastic is not good when it comes to serious matters,and some people do no realize that the person wants serious responses,and sometimes you have to actually know the person before you realize this,and I was glad to respond to you baby,and yeah hopefully both us will get better,longer responses that actually make sense,and I love you,and Happy Posting.

that is something that upsets me as well when someone responds way off base. I do and can fully understand those that do not have a full grasp of the english language but those that have the faculities to understand and are just lazy... they annoy the heck out of MEE. Oh and by the way to show that I, for one, do read.... I think above when you said "Even if it's a slither of a doubt"... I think that you meant "SLIVER" as to "Slither" is what a snake does. Have a wonderful day and HAPPY MYLOTTING!!!

Woops, Slither sliver. I was thinking Sliver in my head but spelled slither, I appreciate the correction. I am also glad that you agree and understand what I mean. I hope that this discussion does not warrant any negative responses, but if it does I suppose that is their own perogative. Have a wonderful day yourself!
