Mylot members pet peeves

Philippines
February 14, 2013 11:14pm CST
This is inspired by a topic started by one of the members here. She said she find it rude when her response did not get a comment from the one who started a discussion while the rest got one. I also think that that's not right, though we don't know what was the real deal. How about you, what is it that you don't like about the members, or the things that they do here you find rude or simply irritating? I appreciate all your opinion. Have a nice day!

I don`t think that not responding is rude. I answer as much as I can, but I don`t have the time to comment on every answer. Sometimes I cannot find time to comment at all. It happened to me yesterday as I went to the beach for the day. Will I be able to do 2 days`work in one. I don`t know. But that`s not being rude. Rude for me is using rude language to someone else or to myself.

margujicha why make a discussion if you do not have time to develope it in the first place?I will not any longer waste my time responding to people who do not care eno ugh to comment back for whatever reason. for one thing making discussions and not bothering to comment back makes you no money at all.just a few pennies. the comments earn you quite well.

Thanks Hatley, I was expecting so more pet peeves aside from the ones about not commenting back. I think that has been discussed in other threads already.

Maybe her answer did not require another response? I don't know, since I haven't read the discussion. I usually choose the ones to answer to, but it's not because I didn't like the others. I simply didn't know what to say.

you know jargoness then just do not make discussions as a lot of us are fed up with being ignored when we make responses. Now we found something to say or you would not have responses so we do expect comments back. I suggest you who do not want to comment just do not make discussions because a discussion involves a number of people not just one.I think if we all who feel this way just stop respondidng to pe ple who refuse to c mment back they will soon have orp;an discussions with no responses.

That's what I thought too. Maybe the started should have commented "Thank you for your time to respond here" or "You're so right, I can't agree more" But I think we are not allowed those kind of response or comment if I'm not mistaken.

I don't agree with you Hatley, at all. Everyone is free to make discussions, and I personally appreciate every single response (unless it's obvious trolling) to the ones I make, even if I don't answer to all of them. You don't have to take it personally; you're not being "ignored". Kourdapya, I think you're right, answers have to be as informative as possible or something like that. :)

ahh now I know by what she post, I'm not comments cause I read and read but not understand what she talking about, well I try my best to comments back when someone give a positive comments or negative btw if there's some comments I'm not understand or have no answer for it, so I just keep on silent, I don't really think it's rude, it's better then when someone are posted and people respond but left their respond just like that at least the OP was giving a respond on others section comments

That's good if you look at it that way. It's just that some people are bothered with that attitude or not commenting to your response when he commented with the rest. You could be right with what you said that they just probably did not understand.

I do not look at it like that as I spent a goodly time to write to my best ability a response only to have the p;rsons tick their nose up and just comment back to a few b uddies. that is not right it is rude and the admins does not adovate that at all.

Hi Kourdapya and welcome to my lot. Me the only thing that really gets on my nerves is trying to think of what to say on the tags. So I put what I put in the post. I don't understand why we have to put tags to every discussion or response we make to different discussions. I say what I think is a good response to all discussions I respond to. Sometimes I may skip a persons response because I just plain don't know what to say to their response to my discussions. And most days I don't have a lot of time to spend on this site because I have so many other things going on in my life I just plain don't have the time to spend on here. Good luck!

If people don't comment back to the responses and comments that I leave then that is their choice. It doesn't really bother me, except that I wonder why they botheres starting a topic for dicsussion in the first place if they then don't intend continuing the conversation. However it is their choice and them who will lose out on the earnings and fun so all be it. Instead I get annoyed when I see users who post incorrect information when trying to help out. If a user is given the wrong information about how to use myLot then it will interfere with how they go about things here and could spoil their participation. Often I see a new user asking a question about something and then someone responds with 'I think it is such and such...'. If a user doesn not know the answer and cannot help them out then they should move on and maybe come back to that topic later when the correct information will later have been posted.

hi diana I have read a lot of the comments and find it odd that they even try to make a discussion if they do not know how to comment, do not want to comment as they are not forced to make a discussion and as I responded I am not forced to make a response since they do not honor my response to others of their discussions. No place on mylot says we must respond to all discussions no matter what so maybe when some find nobody is willing to respond as they get no interaction they will think a bit before making a discussion. Sure anything worthwhile does takes some effort but they are missing out on the fun you can have commenting back and forth on a discussion,

@Diana: I think some users purposely do that to increase the number on the right side of their names. I'm sorry I am guilty of that too, I was a newbie. I still am a newbie here, but participating more helps me learn. But I don't do that anymore, because answers like that gets deleted. Hatly, yes the comment on the response really means respect and appreciation for taking the time to respond. Sometimes I don't know what to comment to the response, and if happens that it's your response, please forgive me if all I can comment is "thank you for sharing that"

Well, actually, to be honest, I am guilty for not responding to one member here when I posted a discussion several months back. It's because he/she has been harassing me with all the comments that I have made from other discussions. It was like he/she was contradicting me all the time to the point of letting me feel that I have never said anything right or do I even have the right to express the way that I felt. I never commented badly to her. I just let it pass.

I haven't been around too long that time, and I have not made any "connections" to people around here. So, I was practically "alone in the dark". I didn't want to start a fight over it. So I opted to keep quiet.

My pet peeve is members who repeatedly insist that they haven't broken any rules when its clear that they have. Oh and people who try to justify themselves with made up loopholes ie. "Its not spam if its not a scam" Seriously? Now, to the topic of commenting. If you don't receive a response from someone, don't sweat it. Assuming its your habit to give valuable feedback, you will be earning more than they do. If this person has answered anyone at all, there is a chance they have answered you too. Indirectly of course. I f you happen to have given a similar response as the person they replied to. Speaking of similiar responses..well, sometimes everyone will say the exact same thing. Its against the guideline to give us all the same comment, so you have to start improvising to make it look different then you run out of ideas and everything starts sounding generic. Once again , that is where you start looking for their response to you, in the response they have given to others.

I have skip a person here and there many times. it was not because I did not want to respond to them. most of the time I just have nothing to respond with. then I will go back later when I have a response. I don't take offense when I go back to a post and see someone skipped me. I think they might not have liked what I said. I can be blunt at times when something really gets to me.

I think I don't like when people get pissed if my response didn't exactly agree with their beliefs and lash out not by responding in an equally nice way, but by marking me so my score would go down. Like, I know I didn't violate any guidelines and I know I didn't mention any foul or nasty words but I was marked negatively just because I didn't agree with that person. But then, I just didn't mind it. Although it is irritating. We can all agree to disagree, right? And if there is something that we can still discuss to settle something then we can do so without being mean to each other. Good thing most people that I have encountered here are not like that. But sometimes, you will come in contact with people who seem to take everything the bad way. Oh well...

hi raine but how do you know one certain person marked you negative as all the rating is done anonymously ? In fact myluot admins stated they wanted it that way to not cause upsets. I agree either we respect e ach other if we have opposite opinions or we just do not go there.If I do state I feel a different way to somrones discussion I also state I do respect your view point b t I have found such and such works just as well.this way I am not being unkind or rude, just giving my own personal opinion and also respecting their personal opinion too.

Hi Hatley, I wouldn't know for sure who did that, but there's this one discussion that I am responding into and we were rallying responses and opinions back and forth. I think we are having a healthy discussion until the person quit responding and my rating went down after that. and that is the only discussion I responded that day because I was also busy doing something else. But I do not really take it to heart, I just let it go. It sucks but not all people think the same way. I guess if they can't respect my opinions, then I can show them that I can respect theirs and others as well. So far, I haven't received any nasty remarks, nor have I engaged in one in here. Except for differences in opinions and basically thats it.

Hello Raine, I can feel your sympathy, and I hate to have encounter with those kind of users, you know, those people who think they know everything and if some opinions are not in favor with them, they give you negative feedbacks which is not the appropirate way of rating, rather they do it on personal reasons. I've come across those kind of users, I just ignore them. One time I got tempted to visit the user's posts and give him negative feedbacks because I was so pissed off, but I dropped the idea. Hello again Hatley, you're right! In my case, after giving my opinion and if that user did not like it, I'd just stopped commenting back and argue. I think that's the best for me to do. I'd rather spend my energy on something else rather than argue with someone. Respect here is really important. Have a nice day!

Well, if i experience that, i would surely get annoyed too. Why would my response be skipped when the rest were responded? Can't the starter of the discussion just simply say a one liner at least, to acknowledge that she has read my response. That would suffice to me. In my case, when i respond i do it chronologically. That way, i don't overlook other response's boxes.

It's really disgusting when someone do that. I feel like the effort I have put in responding to that discussion was not appreciated. Maybe we can't really expect everyone to do the same or at least to be respectful.

It doesn't bother me when people don't respond to one of my comments, although it's nice when they do. What bothers me is when people totally misinterpret something I wrote, or pick my post apart, focusing on one sentence that had little bearing on the major topic.

Good morning..kourdapya...I will not comment on the "ignored" responder part of this discussion as I already replied on "allknowings!" But I do have a serious pet peeve! Possibly it only bothers me...but I do find it very annoying when an OP starts a discussion that makes a blanket statement, such as; "This fruit is known to kill cancer!" That is such a sensitive subject to all, and it gives false hope. If one stumbles across an article like this on the internet, and you wish to post about it...SUPPLY A LINK, so that the responder can make up their own mind. I recently read a discussion like this, and there were so many innocent people that were "wowed" and vowed to increase their consumption, based on this post! I researched the "said fruit" only to find that there were possibilities..but a marked increased consumption would change chemistry of body and be TOXIC! I liken it to "medicine men"! It is scary, that innocent people, and there are plenty in this world...believe what they are told, without further investigation. I, too, feel victim to a Dr. on t.v., whom sang the benefits of "cinnamon", increased my intake markedly, to the amount specified...only to find out, after being diagnosed with a serious liver condition (caused by the cinnamon)that it was the very expensive and true cinnamon...not just the run of the mill..bought at all food stores. There, that is my biggest rant or pet peeve!Have a great day!

on my own point of view,you can't force a member to comment on your discussion simply because for one,that particular member isn't interested on the topic that you posted.I myself is browsing through all the discussions here before I choose a discussion that I want to participate in.And if they left your discussion un commented its just because they have nothing to contribute or they are not interested at all.there are members here who I have seen posting nasty comments on some of the discussions here and I don't know why they are doing that.and also there are topics that are really hard to understand maybe because of the language barrier but yes those are present here at mylot.

You would know if you read the FAQs: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq6.aspx#16 A day in myLot might not be the same as yours. The time in myLot land is that on the clock at the bottom of the page. To know when earnings last updated, go to the bottom of your earnings page. Right now it states: "participation and referral earnings last updated 8 hours ago". When they next update it will be earnings for our participation up until last midnight by the myLot clock. Your profile says that you joined a day ago (according to mylot time note yours) so please be patient... and try thinking less of your earnings because they take care of themselves.

The most of the time that I would skip over someones response is because I wouldn't know how to respond to the person at the moment and I would skip over it and if later I found a way of responding back to that person, then I would put a post back. Other times that I would skip over someone is because I just couldn't understand what they said. Which again, I wouldn't know how to respond. Its not because I have my favorites here or just cause I don't like someone, its just I don't know what to say. I really don't have any pet peeves about mylot at this moment that I could think of.

hi one of my pet peeves is people and not just new ones who refuse to read the guidelines and learn how not to make discussions that will be deleted and yet cry and whine that they did not use foul words, did not do this or that , that or the other thing, and yet they still have not read the information that tells what the do nots are in making discussions. Its so easy to just read the guidelines and the FAQ's and know what the devil you are doing before starting to post anything.

I've seen some posts of those users that you are talking about, and most of them would whine about the earnings, or start a topic that says "what's wrong with this" But you know what, I've seen some users here who are patient in answering newbies questions and posting links about those things. I mean they could have just ignored it, but instead they are helpful.
