Have you ever deleted a mylot friend?

I just now did, as I was tired of getting the 'yes' or 'I don't know' responses that I, in some cases, had specifically asked not to receive. Is this insociable? I don't mean to hurt feelings, but I generally try to post thoughtful conversation topics, and I'm disappointed to receive such a flippant (even incoherent) response. Have I committed a mylot faux pas?

Don't feel bad about it. You have good, sound reasons for deleting this person. Their thoughtless responses end up hurting the entire MyLot community when people respond to discussions with well thought-out answers and the discussions get deleted because of this nonsense; everybody loses credits and earnings in that case. Sometimes you accept a friend and then later start seeing that they are doing this type of thing or that they seem to be scamming the system. The only thing to do is to correct the mistake,which you did. Keep doing a great job!

There are a few folks in MyLot that have a MyLot score of between 5 and 20, yet they have a friends list totalling in the thousdands, or at least the near thousandss, watch out for these ones, you may end up with unexpected junk emails advising you to buy certain stock on the share market, or some other rubbish, most upsetting.

I have deleted a few but the reason that i have deleted them is because they are never active if they were active they would have been kept on the list but instead they are not. Some are but i think it would be best to go on mylot without any friends...

I know what you mean. I have some friends who are active, but we don't really have much in common. The ones who really interest me only sign on from time to time. Bummer.

well I guess this is the only way some people are going to learn they can't expect to get paid for one or two words, it is not fair on Mylot and it is not fair on fellow posters who may lose points if they get deleted....don't feel awful about it.

I don't really understand the function of friends on this site. I used to be active on epinions and I like the way they handled it better. There you "trusted" a person, it didn't have to be mutual. The number of people they were trusted by was their rating. Also, you could block a person and never had to see their posts, and you could turn alerts off and on, both for people and for individual discussions of yours or others. Here it looks like a friends list is just good for looking up likely discussions, so if you don't want to read them why should they be on your list. And I don't see how it damages them to be dropped, except maybe to hurt their feelings.
