Question: 'Do you have a minute to spare?'

If I am going to answer this question, I do spare a minute reading your epistles here. Although I only do this when teaching online or doing other things with my desktop. By the way, I do not read any discussions of those people who blocked me. Regardless, I try my best to read any topics written here. Are you that choosy in reading things written here?

I am not choosy at all. I go through the more recent discussions. If I find that one is not interesting, I skip.

I also do the same thing. However, I cannot skim that much if the discussions are long. The reason is that I cannot stay longer with them because I am teaching online.

@Shavkat There are some long discussions that are interesting, more interesting than the two liners.

There are... a few... people here I totally ignore. I'm pretty sure I've never read anything you've posted on myLot. I usually ignore newbies after greeting them when they first show up until they become somewhat established and seem to be staying for a while. *shrug* I don't see a reason to invest time and interest in someone who might vanish as quickly as they appeared.

@MALUSE A lot of people say they love it here shortly after arriving and then disappear. It's frustrating to start getting to know them only to have them gone not long afterwards.

I remember a young woman who wrote that she had found heaven when she discovered myLot. Obviously, heaven wasn't too appealing because she disappeared after a very short time.

No I am not choosy. I start with most recent discussions and keep on reading and responding as much as I can. Sorry that few mylotters have blocked. It might be accidental or due to the bug.

Do you have a lot of people who blocked you? I know of at least one person who blocked me. You know it's their loss, right? I have time to spare for the site too. I enjoy reading about everyone's lives.

It seems that titles matter most to capture your attention. For this reason, it makes me do the same thing.

@Shavkat I don't why why all the people have blocked me , trust me on that. Bloody stupid insensitive small narrow minded people who shouldn't be on a global forum That's my opinion I hope some of them read this If I could name and shame I would as some of them simply block because they can't debate

I like your last statement. I also consider the same thing. I am not that choosy but I really cannot squander my time with long discussions. It is not that I do not like them. It is because my time is being constrained secondary to my online teaching.

I am glad that you are doing it. I can say that you are still a newbie and hopefully, you won't disappear without a trace here. It happens to some who had been active for a while and stopped being here.
