I have been here for quite awhile and I have been reading discussions about users who are just responding for the sake of responding , maybe, to earn but not fully understanding the full context of the topic. Sigh... they are not reading the full content. I thought, I'd never come across such people but recently, I noticed that in my previous discussions there are respondents who commented but without the full knowledge of what the topic was all about. They just jump into the conclusion based on th e title and few first lines. Heck, I am a person of many words and sometimes I'd like to tease a little. But, well, they just totally misunderstood my topic. I believe it has nothing to do with my English... Peace all ye People!

Ive been experiencing it too, many users misinterpret what I post, and even I commented back they just really can't get it. Maybe its my English too, lol. Sometimes a discussion is really confusing if the title doesn't make any connection with the description, that seems to have a double queries in it, then user may be puzzled on what should be responded to.

Hello, Airkulet. Honestly, I find it amusing. I'm not really pissed. People have different reasons for their actions.:-) There was a time when a posted a topic and a user commented. It was a one liner comment and totally lack of relevance. I was surprised because my post was short and at the same time I couldn't help smiling upon reading his very short comment. I was smiling because I knew then that he just wasted his time responding. A one liner not to mention that it was irrelevant to the topic, wouldn't give him anything. In gratitude and appreciating for making a time to drop a line Still thanked him... A title could be misleading but if you are going to read the full content of the topic you will somehow realized that it is not inappropriate but rather interpreted in a different manner by the author of such discussion. Yeah, i can easily see that it has nothing to do with your English when people commented in your discussion totally out of the topic you discussed. LOL

I'm sure there would be some people like what you mentioned, just respond the dicussions in the purpose of earning without much consideration, maybe that is what "spam" is. And it does nothing to do with your English expression. Maybe we can do nothing to them, and the thing we could make sure is keep ourself away from this kind of behavior. Or if some ID really bothers you a lot, you could complaint it to the forum administrator with some evidence. And really hope everybody communicate with each other in peace and heartfelt.

That's right Benwang, they can be clearly considered as spam or spammer. I'm pretty sure there are lots of people like that here especially the newbies (no offense meant) because they are not here for friendship but by earning, maybe not all of them but most of them. Sorry... Yes, there's nothing we can do about that because it is a display of attitude, I believe and we don't want to offend them by directly saying that they did not read the full topic before responding. Who are we to know if they have read or not? They could be interpreting the discussion differently. Honestly, I'm not pissed. Matter of fact, I am sometimes amused by this behavior because it shows what kind of person they are. Again, I do not intend to offend...

Oh come on eureka we are all here to earn money, yes it is annoying to see that people are writing without reading first but that`s because no one is paying them to read But we are here mostly because mylot is paying us,you have 2825 posts now because mylot is paying you not because you are here for "friendship".You are here because you are allowed to post those banners on your profile and maybe get some new referrals not for "friendship"

i AGREE with you iuluxd, if you're just after the friendship then go FACEBOOK, FRIENDSTER, MYSPACE, TWITTER, or any social networking sites that offer friendship.

You are saying sorry to whom, my dear? To me? Well, as far as your responses to my discussions are concerned so far you have not given me irrelevant once. I often considered your responses, as matter of fact, as one of the bests. I do not think you should be saying 'sorry' to me here. there's no need for that, that I can assure you, unless, you are planning to give me irrelevant and insensible responses to my discussions in the future. God forbids!

If you know what's good for you, better not change the way you respond here.. Or else... off with your EARNINGS. It is always a pleasure to see you responding to my discussions ,dear, especially because you are a kababayan and a witty one at that.

Well, sometimes some discussion could be confusing too. Specially when it's a lengthy one. It seems to be not at all related with the title, so you have to read thoroughly. But usually when that is the case, i would depend on the questions being thrown . From there , i know what to answer.

Hello, dear friend. It has been awhile since the last time I saw you. How's life been treating you? I'm glad to see you here again, though. I am guilty of that . I mean, posting lengthy discussions. Well, we can not blame some people for feeling lazy to read especially when no matter how they tried to read it all, they still ended up confused. You are so right about that. Judging from the title, if the full context which is supposed to clarify everything seems blurry, is the best option in order to respond to a discussion. Anyways, not all users here are so fond to give a tricky title though I have encountered some and boy! it gives me a headache.
• Philippines
26 Oct 11
Yup, I've no noticed that, too, in all the discussions you have posted of which I have responded. Yours is a lot more convenient to respond to for those who doesn't want to spend much time reading the full article. For all newbies out there, yours is a great bonus. They should be flocking your discussions , Simplyd. They can never go wrong by just guessing from your title. Have a lovely day to you, my dear.

hi there eureka! i too have met these people. i pity them instead of becoming pissed. though sometimes they become irritating. but we really have to respect people as that's how they have understood the text. sometimes it's not about our English but their way of understanding it maybe they have little knowledge on the language or probably the laziness of the person to read the whole text especially when it is a lengthy one. they just rush on commenting without thinking that they don't earn much with low quality response. just fortunate that i don't fall under them. i read and comment on the posts that interest me.

Hello, Shanemae. We can't blame them, can we ,dear? There are people who are like that . And there's just nothing we can do about it. It is their personal choice to act that way. But, yup, it is pitiful and waste of time to post something irrelevant to the original discussion because you are not going to earn well from that. It seems that you have done your homework, dear. I can very sense that you are one serious gal, I men, you are taking everything seriously especially when it has something to do with expressing your thoughts. Keep it up, then, girl, it s good for you. Besides, people can feel if you are genuinely interacting with them by putting and making time to read the topic and thinking of what's the best you can share as input.

Yes, dear, just like the Golden Rule "Do not do unto others what you don't want others do unto you!". Very valid and very well taken, my dear, or else I wouldn't come back and bother to give my comments to your responses. I hope more newbies who are joining here will be like you, reading the FAQ's. Being well informed is power, you know. :-) You are greatly appreciated, Shanemae. You are always welcome to participate in my discussion and I'd like to share some of 'myself' to you,too.

hi there eureka! lol! i think we should just spare them. lol! you are right. i am sort of the serious type. well, i think because discussion makers are serious of what they are posting so i make sure that i respond to what they post accordingly since i do not want that they would give me invalid responses for my discussions. it's a give and take i guess. thank you. i hope i have given you that genuine interaction. looking forward for more interactions with you eureka.

Hi eureka! Interesting discussion! I agree with you that there are many users who just don't read the entire discussion and respond only on the basis of the title of the discussion. I really feel disappointed when many respondents do not understand the core issue of my posts. I start scratching my head thinking that I write in a very simple English, how could they not reach to the main issue of the discussion? However, I feel that we can do little about it. New users keeping adding to the list of mylot and many are not aware or say do not break their head to understand what the host is trying to know or ask, they simply write whatever comes in their mind. If I find that any respondent has given a response which is not relevant to the post, I normally do not post my comments on that response. Have a great day! dpk

Hello Eureka! As regards starting a discussion, I may add here that I do not start a new discussion every other day. I only start a new post, when I think that I have sufficient time to post my comments on the responses received or when anything flashes in my mind, which I want to share my friends. You could check my profile page to see, which discussion you missed. You are right that many newbies are not serious and they simply do not understand the meaning of a good discussions, which turns into a kind of conversation. While replying to your post, I always try my best to share something meaningful and worth commenting. Normally, I just can not respond to your post in one liner. Thanks for being such a wonderful friend here on mylot and I always look forward to your interesting discussions.

26 Oct 11
Same here, my dear.;-). I used to start a lot of new discussions before because of so much things going on in my little crazy head but I can not keep up with all the respondents. I felt guilty that I can not accommodate all their comments so I'm taking one discussion at a time unless I have something new and can not wait to discuss with. I'm learning ,you know. I do not understand about these newbies, dear. Well, not all of them are like this, there are some who are really into a good conversation and you can very well by the way they are starting their discussions and the way they are responding, even a lot better than the veterans. But, sigh.... most of them are just here for the money and not interested to have a genuine and meaningful sharing of thoughts and ideas here. If only they knew why most of us are here... But, hey, maybe in the future, they will get to realize that there's more here than just earning. I know that you are one of the best Mylotters that I came across here, dear. No doubt that I always admire your thoughts and your inputs, be it a respond to a discussion or your own topic to discuss. I need not tell you word for word, dear, ei. Or shall I? :-) I'll check your profile ,then. I hardly had an idea what's going on your busy head. I might as well do a little talking on your profile. lol Always take care , my dear. And as always, I'm thanking you for this.

Hi friend, you are very true because i too find many people who just want to earn and have no interest in reading the content given in he discussion, often, they relate it to something else and never try to understand the topic fully... When such thing happens with me i feel like i did too much and had to think too much while writing this discussion and they didnt even read the content, i feel it very silly when people try to do like this... Not only this is he problem with me, i even find that many people conclude their responses in two lines and many people do not have correct english so i cannot understand what response they have given and so i too, while commenting, write nothing but just repeat their words and thats all for me... happy posting

Eshaan, dear, you make me laugh. . but you have told the truth. It is really difficult to respond to a comment of which you do not understand what the respondent was talking about and because we do not want to be rude and still wanted to show our appreciation, we still need to comment back even a few words jut to let them know we acknowledge their efforts. Repeating their words,huh? seems a good thing to do. Seriously, this is the downside when people come here to earn money and not seek for the real and genuine interaction. they think that Mylot is just another earning site and nothing more. well, we can not blame them for having that opinion. but sad for them because in their desire to earn more by posting and not reading fully, they have lost the chance of earning really good, worse, they have lost that chance to earn anything at all because their comment might get deleted. I know you have been here quite long enough to deal with this kind of users. Happy mylotting to you, too, dear. Have a great day always.

I also thought of that, Neil, since not all of us here are well adept in the English language, or it could be that I am using inappropriate word that some of the users are interpreting differently. I sometimes have a problem with this. It is not their fault, though (Who would want to spend much time reading a lengthy post?)and I have nothing against them. It is just sometimes I couldn't help thinking they have just wasted their time... I bet, they don't get to earn a good cents for that compared to when it a response is relevant. It is embarrassing to know that the author knew you did not read everything, isn't it, Neil? You must have learned your lessons.

Hello, Allknowing. Glad to see you here again, dear. I hope all is well with you sand loved ones. Your technique or policy is very much sensible and wise. Why bother to answer a discussion when you are only going to say something not sensible. Isn't it a shame that you are obviously singing My Way when the song is Impossible Dream? Well, my point is do not make a fool out of yourself by not knowing what you have gotten yourself into. I have a very dear friend here even if I love to respond to all her posts, I just couldn't because most of her posts are too lengthy for me. And I do not want to conclude what the topic is all about just by looking at its title. Yup, it is better to skip such topic than embarrass yourself.

Yes it does happen here and sad actually. When a member puts time and effort to a well thought out discussion it really deserves a well thought out response. I have seen many times where members only respond based on the title. I am a woman of lots of words myself and would be embarrassed to mistaken a discussion simply for posting sake. I figure to each its own but then I often wonder what the discussion starter feels about getting such type replies. If they are completely irrelevant we are are allowed to (!) report it and have them removed. I know there are many members who are very diligent with their discussions so they really deserve to be read if one is responding. If one does not want to take the time to read they really should just skip it. If I have ever mistaken a discussion and get such a comment indicating I would always come back and apologies and place another useful comment.

Hello there, Hardworkinggurl. As always, you have showed me how responsible you are. There are people who keeps on ranting things that are not relevant to the topic thinking that they are doing good with their response thus with their earnings, but they are taking it the wrong way because at the end of all their senseless efforts , they are not going to get any credit from it, worse , their post could be deleted. Some people are just after the earning, and yes, it is sad, indeed. I do admire people like you who'd bother to read even lengthy discussions in order to give your two cents worth a sense. We follow the same rule, my dear, if I do not have the time to read, I do not respond. But sometimes out of too much curiosity ,I even would dare to respond to a very lengthy discussion but that is after reading the whole content, and that means thoroughly. I have come to interact with you a lot of times and I am almost confident that you are very kind and sincere to every responses you have made. Thanks a lot, dear.

hi, This site is very useful because here I get many people talking about those subjects which is new/fresh to me. That make me respond with short words or one liner but I think I don't confuse them but i only mention that it is a good piece of info. and i gain knowledge on that particular subject/ field. But irrelevant responses could actually be annoying and we don't know what to reply them. Hope you would get all positive and good responses in future for your discussions. Also we should not forget that this site connects a lot across the globe and may be due to the language, they meant something and wrote something else... or we misunderstood their message...
• Philippines

Hello, Viju.:-) Thank you for dropping by and sharing your thoughts with us. You are very right when you said that it could be the language barrier that must have created such misunderstanding, either on my part or the respondent's part. I am not really annoyed ( i don't have to take this thing seriously) if the respondent seemed to have misunderstood my topic.But, yes, it is somewhat a not good feeling to have read something that is irrelevant to the topic posted.Because firstly, you don't know how exactly you'd respond to it as the author of discussion without annoying or embarrassing the respondent. Secondly, it is a waste of time for the respondent because a qualitative comment must be relevant to the topic.Sigh... Yes, I agree with you. This site is very useful ,indeed. You get to discover a lot of new things here from other people's point of views, life and experiences. If I may suggest , dear. Please do not limit your comment/response to a one liner because you are not going to earn good for that compared to a response longer or at least three lines like you just did here in my discussion.

I think if we read the whole discussion, we would fairly have an idea of the subject and that can help us to respond in a better way. Thanks for your suggestion. I'll try to follow and stick to them. I agree that you should not be annoyed with such responses as that won't help us for pulling out a healthy discussion. I am still learning a lot from the posts of senior friends here, seniors i mean those with a post of 4 digits but at the same time i try to read almost all the posts started by friends/ interest etc.

I also don't know maybe he just don't get my english right. Or maybe he did not spend reading my posts well. Anyway, there are indeed a lot of people tend to read only the title.

I'm not saying that they are bad ones but well sometimes you just couldn't help thinking what 's this person is thinking why he answered such response which is irrelevant to the topic.:-( I have also considered those things when I encountered such a user. Maybe this or this made him respond that way. But it is obvious sometimes that they do not read the topic thoroughly. Yeah, just be reading the title ,they think that they already have figured out what's the topic was all about. We must really keep in mind that it pays more to read the whole content of the post.

but rmendoza give the discussion maker a break as if you do not have the common sense to ask the maker what some sentences mean then that is your fault as we all do our best when we make our discussions to be understandable but you responders also need to give us a break too and why must you always blame short comings on laziness. if people are that lazy they do not belong in mylot as we are a discussion forum not just a question and answer forum I say do not respond until you actually know what the discussion is about. also the admins says if the response is not contributing to the discussion it may be deleted so make your response add to the discussion not tear it down.ex if the maker is talking about the work of making bread, do not make a response about breeding pure bred dogs. theat response has nothing to do with the topic at all. and if the admins sees it it will be deleted.

@rmendoza123 There are people who are lazy, I agree with you on that. . But I believe it is important that they must know that posting an irrelevant response to a discussion won't earn them a thing. It is just ,as well ,a waste of time if they are thinking that reading it is also a waste of their time. Irrelevant response is a no-no to Mylot FAQ's. I have nothing against them even if sometimes I came across these people however it is a pity that they are not gaining anything (note: ANYTHING, not real interaction, friendship not even money) for their efforts which could have been avoided if only they have been patient reading a bit so that they can respond accordingly. I pity them not because they are pathetic but because of their lost efforts... :-) You don't need to sat sorry, dear. Now that you have been informed, I believe you would not want to do it again and won't lost a precious cent or two... Note: Heed my dear Hetley's words here.

You have very well stated a point here, Hatley. We all make good efforts to post discussions that are at least comprehensible enough for everybody. we are not just ranting here just for the sake of ranting but we mean genuine interaction because most of the post here are serious and real life's stories. Asking won't hurt, I must say? :-) Mature Mylotters are here not just for money. Well, the newbies may not believe this right now, but when they started participating in a genuine discussion, they will soon realized what we are talking about... I Hope you are having a great day, my dear. I'm so glad to see you. You are a big help here in order for some users (most are newbies) why relevant response is necessary. I owe you a lot, Hatley. Be well always.

Your english is not bad, but there are a lot of people who just run around the site posting gibberish or off topic responses. These people usually get tracked down and stopped before they have too large of an impact on the site as a whole, but yeah a lot of people don't really read the discussions, they read the title and they are ready to respond. They don't even read other posts under the topic to take the temperature of the discussion.
• Philippines

Thank you for reassuring me that my English is at least comprehensible enough to many, Sharone. such people are only after the earnings they'd be getting by posting discussions and responding to other users' posts. Not knowing that they won't be getting any because of its being irrelevant. Such a waste of their time. Again,without realizing that. Relying only on the title could be misleading since some of us here want to tease and get creative with their post. So, you'll never know what they really wanted to convey unless you have read everything from top to bottom without skipping a line. Have a great day, Sharone.

hi eurekafemme, I have actually encountered a lotter who are just responding for the sake of getting some points. He was actually more of a spammer, he made some random comments on different topics. Like he was saying the same exact response to different discussions and it was so annoying and crazy. He (I think he is a he, because he uses a guy name, anyways..lol) just disappeared one day, I think he got expelled from mylot academy. haha.. The beauty of this site is, we are able to report people who are not using mylot the right way such as spammers, bad people, crazy people..lol In some cases, such as people assuming that they know the topic wherein you are referring to another topic (totally different), it could be just a misunderstanding or he/she is just in a hurry that he can't browse your whole discussion..LOL! Happy Lotting!

Hello, Danitykane. Thank you for checking out this post and sharing what you have to say about this not so funny thing about this kind of members here.:-) It is not really that we want to embarrass them or what but at least they should know that most of us here are serious with what we are posting and we are not just here for money. We are seeking more than that... Sigh... Yup, yesterday, I came across one lotter, too, who also responded here. I was shocked and disheartened to see his response to my other post. Poor guy, if only he read the Mylot FAQ's he would have known that he did not earn anything for what he did... Here's one trick that I'm doing if I can not resist responding to a lengthy discussion. I'm reading the first and the middle paragraphs and the last paragraphs, not thoroughly but in a way like scanning the words.In this way, I still have the core of the story and more or less I can respond in a relevant manner. But of course, it could have been a lot better if I have read everything.:-) Happy Mylotting to you, too.

I've also responded on some discussions without even reading the whole thing, only the title. Those are the times when I was chasing the pay out. LOL Although there are those who don't read anything at all, even the title. Plus, you might want to try this out: Post a long discussion (not too long, though) and you'll find out that either no one will respond to it or someone will but won't even read your discussion.

Hello, Frontvisions. Most of us here are also concern about the payout. OK, that is quite understandable. Who doesn't anyway? But I believe you did that when you were still 'young' and not knowing what to do, ei. You only want to have some candies but you don't want to work hard for it. Well, we all have gone through that phase, I guess, because I did try doing that , too. I mean chasing the payout. LOL As for the lengthy discussions, I think I have posted a couple of that sort. For me, some are longer compared to other discussions, but by God's grace, I still got some respondents and most of them are really sincere with their responses. Oh, I could very well tell that they have read every single word. :-) I, too, have responded to a very lengthy discussion(matter of fact, it was the only discussion I responded to that night because I read all the comments first, there were lots of it that has gotten me more curios, before finally reading the topic being discussed. I think , if you have established good friendship and reputation here , you will never ran out of respondents even you'll eat a lot of their time. I can say that there are good people here who truly cares about what you think and what you feel that they will make time to respond in a truthful manner as well. This is what I like about Mylot, dear. Keep on posting, dear. Will be looking forward to it. Have a great day. :-)

Hi! Many people are here just to earn some money, they do not care what they write or even understand what they write about, as long as they think they reply to discussion, that's it. And because of that, they never really try to understand what the discussion trying to tell, and they just simply write what they though about the title. There are many here. From your this discussion, I can totally understand what you trying to tell, so I do not think it is your English problem, but just the attitude of those people.

Hello there, Yspmyl. Very true, indeed. You have actually articulated what other people are doing but wouldn't admit if doing it. It is a sad thing that they have also no idea that by posting irrelevant answer to any discussion, their efforts will only be wasted and turned into NOTHINGNESS. They won't get paid for doing so ,worse, it could be deleted and they'd could be reported by the author to the Admin, thus, there's a chance that their account could be deleted as well. Yup, there are so many of them here, especially newbies (ops, sorry ,guys, just stating my observations) because I doubt that veterans or those who are here for quite a very long time would do such thing. such persons are missing a lot, not just money but the chance to have genuine interaction and gain friendship eventually. Thank you, dear, for dropping your candid thought here. Much appreciated. :-)

I remember I posted a discussion one day about child support and person responded me that she was very busy in the weekend and celebrating the birthday of somebody, and I was like,I didn' unerstand why she said that I was very confused and didn't reply back to her because I didn't know what to say. But yes sometimes there are people that assume what the discussion is about just by reading the tittle which is wrong.

You have gotten a dose of that? What the ....? But that 's how other people are here. We can not just say stop and shoo but we have to bear with them. But, hey, you could have reported that person to admin. Such a pity, though... Let's just hope that one day ther'll be no more troll and spammers here anymore. What a happy Mylot life it would be then. Let them, what you did was right. Ignore him because for sure he already wasted his time, do not waste yours by responding to his irrelevant comment. Sigh... Patience, dear.

Actully, that was i did when i was a newbie around here. Now I don't like do that. I was doing it on this topic, but I did not understand so I read all, understood correctly too. Why people do that? - They ONLY want money, not friends. Mylot should ban all these, they cannot responde with good comments. Regards oliver!

Hello, Olivere. Welcome to Mylot and to my discussion. Isn't it a shame that you just blurted out something without fully understanding the topic? I'm glad you did change your attitude because most of the authors of the discussions bother to read all the responses they get. It is in appreciation and of course for the purpose of real interaction. Though it may take several hours or days before they can get back to you to comment to the response, but they do bother to comment. And as for the earning, take note that a quality post/comment/response should be RELEVANT to the topic and not just plain blah blahs. thank you for being honest and I know you'll gain more friends here. Keep it up. You'll learn a lot of good traits here.
