Welcome back Bala! I do not know much about your other friends, who appeared to have disappeared from mylot, without informing or intimating you, however, I am very much here and eagerly wait for your appearance on mylot. I was also wondering about your absence, then I thought that you were too busy to join mylot. I conveyed you my wishes on your anniversary too, hope you would have received.

It seems that something fishy is going on here by what I collected my other responses.

I am sure you are hinting at me Bala..! But I am not one of the dinosaurs to go to oblivion. I visit intermittently, like you and when I find you popping up, you will see me as well.. Coming to trolls, there has always been vindictive people, shouldn't we overlook it now?

That's so sad! I wish I could give you an answer to this, but unfortunatly I don't know any more than you do on this subject. I guess even less to be honest. It would be a shame if you would have lost so many Mylot friends in such a short period of time. And how odd that they might have been banned en mass? I'm curious about how this story will turn out. All the best!

Hopefully they didn't fall prey to the hacker who has been invading Mylot and telling people they must delete their accounts. Other than that, I don't know. My friends are still around.

Hi balasri, There has been lots of trolls around and they had a hand in people's accounts disappearing, that is all I know so far, but I may be wrong. Tamara

Last week for two days I could not log on to mylot. After that I have hardly been receiving any notifications. There have been many discussions started by my friends for which I have not received notifications. Something is definitely wrong here.

But I also noticed that you were not active much in mylot last month. I am curious to know what would be the possible reason. I have noticed many members are not much active now and some are coming back after a particular period. I think they must be busy with some other sites. I don't know about your friends may be they will be busy with some other works. If so they will come back soon. Hope you are doing well. Have a nice day.

People hop in and out.But I see some of them have been banned from here as a bunch.That's what pains me.

I wondered the same thing when ai was going through profiles and found many inactive. It seems that mylot was canceling for inactivity but there have been a lot of mistakes made. I do know alot of them are writing to mylot and trying to get their accounts reinstated but alot of them had to come back under new accounts. They've also lost their earnings.

Hi bala..am not absolutely sure but there is a rumour that there is a hacker on the site who is going around deleting certain accounts just as there is a lot or at least one impersonater of different people here, so at the moment we have to be extra vigilant, my thoughts on the subject too is to complain to Mylot to sort this out as there have been a couple of accounts that have been deleted but fortunatly Mylot have let them rejoin mainly as they do know something about what is going on here, but nothing seems to of been done to stop these/this persons/person littleowl

No Kala.I came to understand that they have been banned a whole bunch of them.All are my good friends.Something freaky has happened during my absence.I tried to mail one of them.He was decent enough not to complain about anything or anyone and just said that he missed me too.Well It is a sad thing and I miss them a lot.

Well, I notice the more a person is active in here the more people we continue to see leave here from time to time. Some come back in here with different names and such, but many disappear never to be heard from again. Truthfully I wish they could at least message us to tell us why, or give us other ways to keep in touch as well, but personally they come and go and we will never be the same.

well in this economy people might get two jobs to survive, become homeless, have relationship problem stemming from loss of job or stress over the economy etc. I mean a lot of ppl on my friends list never show up anymore, and that's before the crisis so I can imagine there are even more inactive people these days because of the crisis.

As I know there are so many users here who always keep track of their friends and if in case one is not active for more than a week or so they delete the friend as inactive and it is no worth keeping an inactive friend. Therefore if I am to be off mylot for a long time would put up a topic so that it keeps them informed that I am not otherwise inactive.

I think some people have been targeted by trolls and others have just got so fed up with the situation that they've left, my friend. One or two drift back, but others seem to give up... once bitten, twice shy, kind of thing. Brightest Blessings.

I suppose they get busy with their lives. Some may suddenly appear out of the blue. Then they may decide to take a break. I would think it would be very hard for them to stay away from here for too long Bala. I'm sure they will drop in once in a while to hi to you.

Hello bala! Welcome back. I'm not sure what exactly happened here for the last few weeks, but I have one friend account set inactive even though she didn't ask for it, I think! My Husband receive 3 unsubscribe mail which he didn't ask for also and all he could think is someone was trying to set his account here inactive and this all I know.

Seems mylot was clearing people out. I heard of a lot of peoples accounts being put on inactive, even if they were active and others accounts being deleted. I thankfully haven't had any problems, but I know lots of people were. Not sure of the exact details of why, but I haven't heard anything since so I thought it all got cleared up.
