Since I got the star on mylot when I reached hundred messages I am ranging from seven to eight and back.. I am trying not hurting no body with my responses and discussions and I didn't use the minus (-) rating on mylot 'cause I think I will use it just in case someone really offending somebody else or spreading evil propoganda. So it made me feel I did something wrong and I don't know what it is.. do you take it personally when someone drop your points on mylot ? what makes you raise or drop someone else rating of star ? thank you.

Try not to take it personal. I think that some people really don't think, maybe don't care at all, about how someone might feel when the give a negative rating. I try to always rate my friends discussions and any good ones I come across. Unless someone is being personally mean to someone else I don't give a negative.

Well... I have never drop someone's star... or have I? I usually give them [+] for asnwering the discussion I started. It's my appreciation for people who's trying to give me a good solution for my problems. But sometimes I tempted to give [-] too especially when I saw newbies with one line posts that makes my [no responses] section full of those kind of discussions. well.. so far as i remembered, i've never give [-] or have I? I don't know, but some people might get offended by your answer or something so he/she gave you [-]. that's why I never get involved in a hot and controversional discussions lol

But that is the reason I am asking this question, because I am quite sure I didn't offended anybody or said something arousing controversy, I think. well, that's the way it goes and I don't know why especially today I got offended by it 'cause my rating went up and down few time and it didn't made me feel this way. maybe it's just a day like that. anyway, thank you for your words.

well.. that's bad... maybe it's someone that just being jealous because you got many stars in you... just don't be angry, I know it is annoying because some people just can't make a discussion a discussion.. you're welcome, and have a nice day :)

I never take it personally when someone drops my rating on mylot.I know that person might have done it for my own benefit.I never drop anyones rating in stars.I just read the discussions and give the best responses a + rating.

WEll I don't really take it so personal as long I'm having fun out here and I'm not hurting other people and that is the important thing..I know the feelin when some people don't care to think that when they put negative,they hurt some other people but just don't think about the points...:-0 Just always think that you are here for fun,earning friends and sharing ideas...:-0 Don't give up..:-0 I'm sure your points will go higher...:-0 Good luck and have a nice day...:-0

Rating given to a particular topic is purely a choice of the reader.Good rating requires a careful judging of the opinion and a wide understanding of the topic involved. A reader not finding the above qualities in a topic generally end up in giving a negative rating. Sadanand.

For me....i never give negative rating.If i see that the response or comment has nothing to do with the topic i leave it unrated.I don't like giving negative rating as i don't like to be rated negatively also.Sometimes there are few who really gives negative rates-i am not really sure.I took some of the pioneers advice not to bother myself with the star because it could go down to the lowest.Keep posting!

I usually mark everybody positive. I have marked negative only for abusive, rude posts or for religious fanatics who tolerate others views at all. Cheers and happy mylotting

hi vanila, it is completely depends on other users. they will rate you + if they like your posts or for other reasons. they will also rate you - if they dislike your posts or for other reasons. well, we can just post as quality posts as possible."

I have heard that they want you to have a good quality discussion here. Not many answers that are just a couple words long. But more like 4-5 sentences long! I hope that this helps you out!
