Did I Miss Something?

This has been happening a lot lately and I'm just wondering if missed the memo or something. But why are people posting discussions in categories that have NOTHING to do with the discussion at hand? I see these topics appear in the top topics or similar discussions and I click on them, read them, post my thoughts and tag the discussion only to receive an "add this interest message". It always takes me by surprise because pretty much every topic I would respond to I've already added as an interest. Now I've started paying attention to where people post things and this is rather confusing. I've noticed mylot concerns posted in ice cream categories, politics posted in online games, animal cruetly posted in chess, and so on. What's up with this? Did I miss something?

I think that sometimes people are not paying attention or are unsure. I did however read a post not too long ago saying that they noticed they got more responses continually posting in Mylot category & relationships. So they were going to post all their topics in those categories. I think it just makes it more confusing to the people looking for discussions on that topic.

I have noticed the same thing. Each category seems to contain discussions that should be elsewhere, but at least don't belong where they are. I thought it might be a glitch at myLot but it is more likely to be people posting in the wrong category.
