When people don't respond to your discussions, how does it make you feel?

Does it bother you when someone doesn't respond to your discussion at all? Do you feel bad because your topic wasn't interesting enough to respond to? Does it discourage you from even bringing that discussion back up at a later time? How long do you wait until you completely give up on a dead discussion?

I don't think that, I rather think that people didn't have access to my discussions (i.e. bad tags/links etc...) so then I try to promote the next one better, also with a better explanation and all that. Can you target me to that no reponse discussions of yours? Perhaps I can help you!

he he...I have some listed as "0" responses in my profile...lol. So I guess tagging really make a lot of difference at the end. Sometimes I do it, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I feel like discussions are overlooked because so many people post in a particular interest area at one time thus pushing my discussion further down on the list. But then, I guess that is where the tagging comes in, huh?

Of course, with tagging your discussion gets listed in many places, not just in friends or interests discussions. It get placed in "related discussions" and it also can be found by searching... so I recommend you always put useful tags, and sometimes unseful tags such as "love, life, prople, life in general, friends"... I didn't realize there was a place for 0 discussions in profiles, I'll check it out!

I don't feel bad about it at all. Not all posts will get a response. I do think it will be hard to pick best response though. I also know the more post that get no response is one less best response another can get. I just continue to my lot as I had before. it's not really a loss to me if they don't respond to it.

When people dont respond to my discussions i feel sad and confuse. I am thinking that they dont like the way i describe or elaborate. So i try to find a good topic.

I don't mind, as long as I get paid for my post I don't care that people don't want to respons. Unless it's something that I need help for, then it's really annoying :-)
