One different thing about Yahoo! Answers is that you can go into a category and subcategories answer questions. You get points for your responses, but I think you have to give up points to ask a question. I think Yahoo is much better than the myLot system to find something you want to read, however, you can get some nasty/stupid responses on Yahoo! Answers from some of the people on there. Most are great people, but I don't notice the goofballs as much on myLot. I think the people here respect that if you are voted too negatively or people report you, you not only get kicked off, but lose the ability to make any money from the site. When they hit you in the wallet, people are better about that kind of thing!

Oh is it? You can voted as negatively down here and get kicked off? What happens if someone framed you or voted you negatively to sabotage you. How to justify that?

I guess I didn't mean "rated negatively", but if people used the "!" to report someone's violations of the rules of the site. I did read an alert from myLot that says they take precautions and it's impossible for someone to gang up on you and rate you negatively, just out of spite.

Hugely different. Yahoo! Answers have easier navigation, not so complicated. Mylot has many advantages, you get paid, have your own profile and have freedom of speech. Yahoo! Answers are mainly about questions but Mylot is where you come to post your opinions about certain topics that are available and also to answer questions. Since many people have trusted this site with payments, etc and there is a community of over 72 thousand people, it will keep growing. Mylot is also a mystery, about who owns it, how discussions are paid for, etc
