Very strange...

I just had a strange experience. I went to post a comment to a discussion and I got a pop-up message that said I couldn't because I wasn't friends with them. I never noticed that before. I thought that I posted several comments to other myLotters without being on their friends list. Is this something new that just happened?

That isn't right at all. As noted here, you only get that when you post a pm to a person on here. That is in place to help prevent spam to members as a protection to you. It's a good thing. But! The posting a message on here isn't what should be happening. Although...I wonder. Maybe it could be a block that a person may do. I have seen that on other forums. The way it worked there was that you could block a person that was posting negatives in your posts. I don't think this site has that feature though. Hmmm. Email the admin. on here and see what they say. Hope that helps you in some way.

Cher is right. It was just a glitch. If you had to be friends to post comments on discussions, the site would collapse. That's the message you get if you try to send a PM to someone you're not friends with. Can you imagine what it would be like around here if everybody suddenly had to start friending people, just to comment? What a mess! :-)

that has never happened to me. i wonder what is going on? although i DO know that mylot had some technical problems earlier in the day 9at least it did for me) and that could be the cause of your glitch. if it persists, i would contact 'the powers that be'.
