It is interesting that you rate everyone who responds to your discussions. It does say in the guidelines that you should only rate those who merit it (well, maybe not those exact words) but in general you give a positive (+) rating to those who add to the discussion and a negative (-) to those who spam, make an inappropriate response or something like. Of course the best response goes to the one which is that, i.e. best response, and it doesn't necessarily have to agree with what you think and/or feel. I do rate my discussions but DO NOT rate every person who responds, as I believe that devalues the advantages of the rating system. Yes, rating any response does affect their earnings, so for a best response or a positive (+) that person will get a little extra money whilst anyone who scores a (-) will earn a little less for that particular response. So, in answer to your question, yes it does help the responses that you do rate. Similarly you can rate a discussion started by anyone else and any response, irrespective of who starts the discussion. In addition, we are now able to rate the photos and images which are uploaded here to myLot. I hope that explains things a little bit better for you and good luck with future discussions. :)
