have you ever found hard topic to response in your friend's discussion? well, i faced those matter. some of my friends seem always making topic discussion in their own knowing and their own culture. i do really want to reply them, but when i read the discussion, i just know nothing about those topic discussion. i mean here, my friends didn't make topic discussion in general information or in detail. its just make me confuse how to response them. as like the tv program which on their countries and lots more. what do you think?

Some topics, I think, you just can't respond to. For instance, I don't even watch TV. I can't jump into something that I have no knowledge of. So, I don't respond to those. I hope that my friends do understand, although I'm sure all of them don't know this about me.

Yes, so true, there would be just times, depending on the situation and other stuff, that you can't really respond, but I do try my best to understand what the topic is, and make a research at times, for me to be able to respond to them, at least

I have learned a lot this way at myLot. It is a very informative site. When I have time, I look it up. Only not about television!

Since a lot of members here have different cultures and races, then that situation is likely to happen. If I find no discussion of my friends that suits to my interest, I then go to other discussions. Have a great day!

If you can't participate in their topic discussion, maybe you can propose a new topic which you are familiar with and waiting for your friend to give their comment.

If they are asking a more generalized question about tv shows, like I like "x" from my country, what do you watch & what is your favorite show, then I answer. My favorite program happens to be a British program that is showing here in the States called Doctor Who. I have loved the show since I first discovered it back in the early 1980's. If, however, they are asking specifics about a show that either doesn't show here in the States, of which there are many, or even soap operas here in the States, I can't respond so I don't worry about those discussions. You don't have to respond to every discussion your friends' start. If I see that something new has posted in the cat topic but I haven't gotten a notification that one of my friend's has stated a discussion, that doesn't stop me from going to see what it is. I might very well ask to become that person's friend!

I have encountered some of those posts that are too specific and would talk about their culture and like that, sometimes when its too deep I just dont reply but there were instances that I was able to respond and used it as a venue for sharing my culture as well, I see those kind of posts but most of what I reply are those which that i can relate and can share something about. I just read the deep and complicated posts and dont reply.

oh! maybe my discussion to some extent is so hard to respond. that's why i have so many 0 response here. however i dont think that my discussion is difficult, i have try my best to figure out easy discussion. maybe that is only my personal thought. basically, i will try to respond to my friends's discussion. of course, if i could not even understand what they are talking about, i may just read.

I frequently think that, with some of my friends' discussions, they would be better off with other peoples answers... I don't answer every discussion from my friends if there isn't something I can add. I don't want to waste their time or mine! Don't feel bad... there are always more topics coming!

Yeah, it's hard to answer these type of questions unless they're international programs or tv series. I just don't answer those topics. How could I? The only thing I could write is "i'm srry, I have no idea what are you talkin about" and that would be so lame of me:P But I guess they can do this because you never know what you can find out on myLot. I'm from poland but I watch japanese drama from time to time so I would certainly answer in that subject even though many would think it's unlikely.

At times it becomes difficult to reply to some discussions, because host has no knowledge of our knowledge or line of thoughts. It is not always possible to reply to each and every discussion, started by our dear friends.

It's that really your friend's discussion ? then you just got to ask him/her about the topic. If you really want to reply them but don't want to ask them, simply just search more information about the topic in search engine. With billion of information in internet, I guess it not really hard to find information you want with search engine help, even culture or tv program.. :)

I think it is often to see difficult topics for me to answer. But that's OK. I still try to respond as many as I can:)

yes i have faced the same problem. in my friend's discussion section i have found few of them which can't be understood by me. Also i have noticed that there are few friends who have the habit of posting all discussions from their own culture and very complicated thing. Although i want to answer still i can't.

I've started one topic on a game thats coming out, but I posted several videos so people can watch and have an idea. Then I posted another about a guy altering another game to look like an anime. Again, videos are in that one too. Its just sad there weren't that many responses. Plum you think culture and TV questions are hard topics? You should see a few of my discussions. But personally, if I can't answer a thread I won't. A few other times I just need a refresher then I can hold a discussion.

Since a lot of my friends are from other countries I face the same problem. I also have a lot of friends who post discussions about their children. which I don't have any. I simply don't respond to these discussion because if you don't have anything to bring to the discussion, move on.

yes, and it sad..sometimes I wanted to reply on all of my friends discussion..because I think It is but proper to reply to them..but there are discussions that even though how hard I try to respond,words don't come out of my mind..I am completely lost about the discussion and really didn't get a thing bout it..and so I just skip away.. How I wish I have always something to say or to contribute...
