Okay. No, I don't do that so if it happens it's not me. But I have commented a few people now who have been doing that in discussions. I will admit, I did do that in my own posts a few times when but I later learned by people I seen saying they got warnings from my lot not to do that and going over all the guidelines on the mylot page not to do that, so I stopped that fast! I'm thankful I did too because now that I'm seeing so many of them and it's starting to annoy me, I don't want to be one of those. Lately, even in my own posts, I have seen responses that have nothing to do with the subject of the post and the person is "advertising" their referral link. And to make it worse alot of times when they are posting their referral links they have the nerve to talk bad about mylot and how badly they get payed and how much better they're getting payed from their referral site. It makes me upset because I think, if it is that bad than delete your account and go spend your time on that site to keep making more money and post your referral link somewhere else. Have you been one of those who have been warned by mylot after posting referrals? How do you feel about this subject, am I the only one, or do you think it's okay? Of course, I would be okay with it if we were able to do it, but we're not so it's not okay, and if you're gonna talk about your sites than aren't you supposed to just keep it just on your page?

Yes I don't do this either. I did do this a few times when I was only new here but I do not do this any more and have not done it for a couple of months now. Oh I have never seen anything that had nothing to do with the subject they were responding to. Oh yes I did see this about other saying bad things about mylot and if they feel it is so bad then why don't they leave. No I was never warned about posting my referral links. Yes I think that if we want to put anything about referral and other sites then it is wise to put it on our profiles.

I don't report them but I know we aren't suppose to do that. They want to keep the spam and such out of here. If someone responds to one of my discussions with just a referral like and it has nothing to do with my subject then yes I'm more inclined to report them but not normally.

You are allowed to put referral links in discussions if it pertains to the discussion topic. What is not allowed are discussions that start off solely with a referral link and wanting people to sign up under them. I have communicated with myLot admin about this, and that is what they confirmed. I know, sometimes, I feel bombarded by referral links, but I just skip over them. I usually on post a referral link for writing sites, for others interested in getting paid for their writing. If you are finding referral links in your discussions, that don't apply to the subject, then yes, by all means you can report the poster. I hope this helps. Happy posting.
