Today because my brain is empty and not working again for new topic to be discuss here in mylot. I start responding to those discussions responded by fellow myloters. But it looks like a Dejavu to me, because i feel and i think i responded to those discussions similar to previous discussion that i responded last few days or weeks? What's going on here,looks like there's a recycling of discussions hehehe, im not sure, maybe it's dejavu hahaha. Does it happened to you that you are responding similar discussions from before? Thanks for sharing. Happy myloting.

Yeah I very often experience this infact on some days I reckon I respond to three or four discussions which are asking the same or discussing the same thing. I'm reluctant to copy and paste my answer again so I do post an original response everytime which is a little time consuming when you think you've already typed the same out earlier. But looking on the bright side i'm here to help others with my knowledge as well as earn and make new friends so I don't mind it too much.

Yes I use to do it the same way, but when you 20 times respond on the topics such as "What is your best way to earn online?" it start to bother you. But usually I try to help even I seen the topic before.

I don't copy and paste duplicate responses either. I add my words as they come out on the keyboard. Most times with a lot of typos. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Im fairly new to mylot but I have read discussions that seem to have the same thought as the next one, just of a different title. I havent really explored much of the site yet but that's what I've noticed as well. =)

Yeah you see its different topic with same thoughts, looks like it's recycled. But some of it are really coincidence to be similar.Happy posting.

Hello, ehehehhe, i don't guess is a dejavu, it happens that sometimes we find several discussions that have more or less the same topic, the same questions and so on. And not always they are from the same author. Happens that people post very similar discussions. So is not a dejavu, is just our fantasy lack ;)

I feel strange when i see similar discussion to one I already answerd in the past and I almost never answer that. I mean I cant answer and explain the same thing over and over again just because its anew discussion lol I can just put alink to my previous answer that might work heheh.

Yes, just better to copy and pasted. In my case sometimes i do escape that topic and find the new fresh topics to answered. Coz mybe the admin will deleted the repeatitive similar discussion. Cheers!

You are not having hallucinations. Before lumping them as copycats several things need to be borne in mind. I think it is normal for several people to have similar thoughts in mind. In this respect we have to give some benefits of doubt. A discussion restarted with a different approach and a different stress may be all right. On the other hand this problem is not limited to myLot. There are people who are prepared to do anything for the sake of money or some kind of other reward. If you join several sites, you may be 'lucky' to see similar discussions in at least two of the sites. Currently I am not too bothered with it as long as I am not affected.

Yes i do agree, well im not bothered too, im just get confused sometimes. Thanks for responding.

Many times I have felt as if I am responding to the same topics over and over. It gets this way at the middle of each month it seems lately. Especially with the "I GOT PAID" discussions. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
@rainmark (4302)

Yes you're right grandpa bob, lots of people here are posting thier success when they get paid, im one of it hahahaha

This happens to me many times. It has to do with my mental frame at that point in time. When I am not in a mood, I kind of come across all similar discussions. On some other times when I am okay, I get to bring out my best even with the similar discussions!
@rainmark (4302)
14 Nov 08
I see im maybe similar to you. Well there's always similar in lots of thing like in discussions here. Happy posting.

yeah a lot of times i did... but it could be that the person who started, may have discussion similar to others but on a different situation... so i guess it's ok... :)

Yes i do understand, sometimes you can't avoid having same topics to post. As long as they are not really same word for word. Happy posting.

lol =D YEah, that happens to me all the time, whereby there are similiar discussions.. hehe ^_^ SOme can be within a space of a few days to a few hrs, while some can be weeks away.. hehe ^_^ BUt i dun think it's recycling of discussions.. It's more like they happen to thnk of the discussion and start them too.. For there are so many members in mylot, so it's inevitable that there are 2-3 members starting similiar ones ^_^
@rainmark (4302)
14 Nov 08
Yes you're right kun.Sometimes you can;t really avoid that you posted the same discussion at the same time. And also sometimes when you have nothing to think to post, you easily think the very commony topics and post it. Happy myloting.

It's been the same way for me. I always have a browser window open to myLot. But, I have just not felt like talking. Even when I realize that I won't be making any money today, I'm still not motivated. I just can't find anything that I feel like I could make any worthwhile responses to. I bet I earn next to nothing today! *LOL* Oh well. Maybe we just all need a break sometimes. :)

That'ts alright eastanley, take a break then, you need it, Who don't need a break. Happy myloting.

Hey there. I know exactly what you mean. I have had answered some topics that were already discussed by other members. It seems like of the discussions are repetitive most of the time.
@rainmark (4302)
14 Nov 08
Yes it is. Most of the discussions. You seldom see the new fresh topic. happy posting.

I often experience this. It happens this time of year alot. I remember a lot of discussions I answered to last year, that have been repeated this year. I just go with the flow, and continue to post and give my opinion on things. It's funny though when you could swear that you just responded to the same discussion a few weeks ago. I think that happens though when you have so many people in one social network, things are bond to be repeated eventually.
@rainmark (4302)

I see, so meaning there's more repeatitive discussions that be posted here in the future. So maybe i need to copy and paste my answer then. cheers!

It's not uncommon already rain, actually there's a lot out there. Sometimes created by the same members. I have encountered this kind of situation many times already.
@rainmark (4302)

Yes,and everytime you open mylot the next day,you can read same topics. I feel tired answering with same topic,so i leave it sometimes. Happy posting.

Of course this happen to me quite often. There is many similar topics appear daily and I respond many time similar discussion using similar comment. But lately I am quite sick of these still repeating discussions, so I do not respond them these days, trying to find some fresh themas to discuss which I have not seen here before.
@rainmark (4302)
14 Nov 08
Well everybody will get sick of the repeatetive topics, i feel tired typing same words. How about copy and paste? That maybe okay. Happy posting.

Of course I have those times too. There are simply too many repeated discussions here. Nowadays, I avoid replying to similar discussions. It's tiring to keep typing the same stuff.

Yes, I am familiar with the concept. Sometimes it does seem that a new person is asking a question you've already answered once before. I haven't noticed many people recycling their questions, however. I think that would get annoying. Have a good day.

I think it is difficult to come up with very original topics. Our life experiences seems to be almost identical even though we live miles apart, different cultures, races, religion, attitude towards life. Thus we have the same topics recycled over and over again. © ronaldinu 2008
