Have you noticed that when someone posts a discussion about a new ptc website or earning website and says "Check my profile" or "pm me for more information" it never fails that you get a buncha people saying oooh pm me i want info. Honestly this may sound picky but If i post s if you want more info to pm me then if you cant make the effort to do that...then I'm not going to pick through discussions for everyone who cant be bothered to make the effort to pm me. To me it strikes me as they arent really interested and they didn't bother to read my discussion. How do you feel about people not bothering to do as instructed? Would you be like me or...would you go through and pm each person who didnt really read the discussion as they asked for the information?

It sure irritates me.I just don't understand how they miss the points of instructions in a discussion and start replying on another wrong context which is being followed by the rest dutifully like a herd who also don't bother to have a look at the original prime discussion raised.It is a kind of menace .No doubt.

I agree, kind of a menace. Sometimes It's almost like people only read the title of the discussion before replying and nothing else.

As referral links are not allowed, they resort to asking people to check their profile. As for those who ask for PM, I think the member who starts the discussion will do it as they would like to gain that new referral. I avoid those discussions as such discussion are usually deleted.

If people post their link, their post will be deleted, if not the whole thread altogether. I have started a discussion recently. Ironically I said that women should not post in my discussion. however it collected quite a number of responses from women. i was pleased with all the responses. It seems that sometimes people or better that women never listen :)

I'm aware that if they post a referral link it will be deleted. Other links to say news etc are fine from what ive seen. But i really do think its silly that people dont bother to read the instructions of go to my profile or pm me for the information and just post that pm me the information. I saw your discussion - it said not to read any farther. But with a statement like you made saying that right after is just asking for women to read what else you have to say.

Well, that is one of the main reasons I never really talk about the things I am doing online/offline besides myLot that are making me money. If a person is a Friend of mine, and messages me wanting more information, then I will share it with them, but other than that... why try to Spam here? For me, there are times I will check out something listed in a profile but only when I have time and it looks or sounds interesting enough to want to do so.

Actually, discussions of that type are discouraged here and get deleted when people report them to admin. If you do it often enough they'll ban your account.

good to know. I just know i see them all the time and then never bother going back to them. I'll refrain from answering them now.
