i find it very awkward to reply one line questions accompanied with one line answers. I am sick of posters who ask a question whose answers could not length more than one word. plz guys initiate a long meaningful discussion.

dear in this busy world you just can't expect a person to waste so much time on one discussion alone.......you need to be a spontaneous replier...if the discussion is too long it only creates boredsome n nthgn else..so ur quest and ans both shud be short or even then desciptive..n tats an art..

I think the expectation should be that it contribute something new and useful to the discussion and allow us all to have improved lives because of it.

I agree with you. I also came across many discussions where the question and the answers, both a just one or two words. for example, asking for 'your sun sign'. The discussion, the question itself shows us how matured the member is, or how serious he is about making some money on mylot. Many of these kind of users are only interested in a big number of discussions they have started. To support them, there are thousands of others to answer in a single word or two. This should not discourage the other good users on mylot. The ranking of the users with one or two words is obviously going to go down. It doesn't not affect others to have these one/two liner posts. I think, we should keep up the good work and let mylot take care of the rest.

I agree, answering to one liner topic is also a risky proposition. Mylot discourage one line and deletes them, so if you have made a response to a one line topic and mylot deletes it say bye bye to your hard work =). Its one of the reason i avoid responding to such practice. I think its also lame to answer to a one line topic.

we should not encourage these kindov discussions first and mylot oesnt provide money for "phrases". Hence plz make it more than terse and lets change this into a successful community.

The shared experience of a group is best when all contribute. If the reasoned thinker just watches and thinks but doesnt place any useful addition to the group then that person is just a load to be borne by the group.
