I'm curious about this in general. I notice that I sometimes lose a little more patience with my comments after MHO has been awarded. Do you feel like you do this too? Or does it depend more on the question for you? Or are you always nice and we need to start looking into GaG sainthood? Is there any reasoning behind your commenting style?
- I'm always niceVote A
- My niceness is affected by MHO being awardedVote B
- My niceness is NOT affected by MHO being awardedVote C
- My niceness is MUCH more dependent on the question being askedVote D

I'm the only user who voted B 😲
First of all, I'm not here for MHOs. They don't even mean anything. At least to me. Cute/hot girls have a lot higher MHO% than me and the awarded 5 xper are useless as I'll donate each and every xper eventually.
GAG is a kind of pseudo dating site. Most of the people here are the ones who are socially (especially, romantically) challenged. They are frustrated and they seek some consolation by signing up on such sites.
They misuse the features and make this place repelling.
(Cute girl privileges) :/
I check the opinions (sometimes) that what has been awarded MHO (if not mine) to learn something but most of the time, it upsets me. MHO is a joke. Nowadays, I don't participate in the site and I just opine on the questions which I deem right or seem genuine questions. And it really worked. I was chosen as the most helpful GAGer back to back three times in a row. But it's not fun. I was a lot more happier when I just used to opine for enjoyment and to help others. Maybe I got a life. If I really wanted MHOs I know how to validate the asker. But that's not me. I'm (and always will be) a honest person.
●Sometimes, I even find comments like "thanks for MHO but I think YourFutureEx deserved it more".
●Sometimes, asker comment things like "would you mind if I give MHO to xxx instead of you?"
●"Sorry I wanted to give you MHO but I accidentally chosen him/her" -seriously? The site even asks "are you sure?"
But at least, they admitted.
I'm not nice because I want MHO, I'm nice because I'm actually a nice person and honestly, I can be a rude person too. After all, I'm a human being. I have feelings.
I reply as long as the asker wants but internally, apathy takes over my mind a bit and that's why I voted B. But I don't show them and pretend that nothing happened.
I've been called as cheater, copycat, fraud by other user because my opinion was to the point and better and they are threatened to lose their expected MHO. Sadly, people here take it as competition. We are certainly not a community at all, to be honest.
The one and only reason left to hate this site for me is that people are here for validation only and because of this, a lot of genuine questions are being ignored :( and a lot of efforts, time and energy are being wasted.
At the end of the day, for me, my MHO is 100%
But there are only 16% people who are ingenious :p1
