How much does it irritate you when people respond here on myLot and don't read your entire discussion before responding? My discussions aren't that long. I don't write entire essays. Is it that hard to actually read them if you are going to respond? Sometimes, I wonder.

I understand where you are coming from completely. It is very irritating when someone doesn't read the entire discussion. I have had this happen to me many times. I think those that do this are only here to make money and could careless about the actual discussions. They read the title, just assume what its about, and begin responding. Best of luck!

Your very welcome! The other thing that irritates me that kinda of goes along with your topic here. Is those people that read the discussion and then respond with things like "I don't know" or "I can't help you on this". Then they don't add anything else to the discussion. I look at it like "If you couldn't help me or don't know then why did you bother responding?" Again, clearly these kind of people are just here to make money and will respond to any and all discussions regardless as to whether they are interested in the discussion at all.

I always read the discussion in full before replying, that way i know exactly what the discussion is about. Sometimes I go away and think about it before replying and sometimes i even re-read it just in case i missed something the first time around. I think it would be completely pointless to just reply to something because you can rather than understanding it completely.

It's just such a waste of time for everyone involved. Like you said, it's pointless. And, they are just in it for the money, I think.

I would much rather people read all the discussion before they respond. I would also much prefer people to read and understand any of my discussions before the respond. It only takes a couple of moments to read and digest the words on the screen.

Yes, I agree. A lot of people respond without reading or even understanding. It is such a waste of everyone's time.

I tottaly agree with you too, dont respond if you dont know what to put it wastes everyones time and read everyones responce you might learn something else that will help you out. I posted this one and everyone kept writing almost the same thing which is fine unless I answered to what they said to someone elses responce which should make them understand it a little more.
