I have noticed that some of the discussions on mylot however boring and senseless they may be get a lot of responses. I have also noticed that the same people answer each others discussions. these people are usually from the persons friend list. this kind of amounts to cheating as you are answering because the person is your friend and not because you are interested in the topic. how do you feel about this practice.

I don't think it is cheating by answering your friends topics! Isn't that why you have those friends, and because you are interested in some of the same things. I do know that if any of my friends discussions are not ones I would usually answer - then I don't. Happy mylotting and keep enjoying the experience.

I think people will do anything to make a few pennies. If you do this for the money, I guess it can seem tempting. Personally, I am doing this for fun, so I answer to what interests me and I don't much care what other people do! :)

Its not correct my friend, what is the concept of adding friend ship, then only we know what kind of person he is and what kind of discussion he is postion... and its very helpfull to show our discussion to our group of friends, this is not cheating, if you want the answers you need friends they only know what discussion we have started, don't think its cheating... Cheating means posting others discussion and unwanted informations....

I find it annoying and frustrating that people who make totally inane topics get so many responses, and thus so much money. On the other hand, that's part of what having "friends" on mylot is for: getting responses to your discussions. Personally I know I reply to discussions of my friends if they interest me, or if they did appear to put some work into it but haven't gotten any responses yet. I try not to reply to anything horribly inane, but then I don't usually friend people who make those types of discussions. I think there's really no way to stop people from doing this, but mylot has declared that they consider the "quality" of a post when paying. So I'd hope these people are doing as well as they seem to be doing.
