Will you respond to the same discussions more than once?

I realized that I do this often, respond to different users discussions but with the same exact topic. This is something that I do more often when I cannot find discussions that Im interested in but I do not see anything wrong with it, I dont give the same word for word answer or anything, but I wondered what others thought about this. I hear people annoyed by multiple discussions that are the same, I didn't even check to see if this one was one, but I think its okk having several circulating for this reason. In day-to-day life conversations that were already talked about keep coming up again all the time. Will you respond to a discussion you've already talked about in another users discussion or do you just pass them up. If you do respond to alot of the same discussions, what is your reason?

Yes. Even though both have the same topic still people who answer it have different way of answering it. They even have additional answers that anyone could relate and post long answers with sense in the discussion. Sometime, your answer really depends on the topic and your mood the time you are answering it.

Hi! My sweet friend! Like you, i also respond to the same discussions more than once, if i happen to see that, of course, by different users. I don't think it's wrong to respond on similar topics to different users. I also don't think it's wrong if similar topics are chosen for discussion by different users, all at the same time or otherwise. In each case, there can be only one ORIGINAL. Others are duplicates only. More over, out of over a lakh of users here, only a few get to see and respond to one user on that particular topic and others don't even know whether similar topics are circulating or not and they need not even bother about it! Because different set of users are going to respond to their discussions. So, i conclude there is nothing wrong in raising similar posts! If nothing is wrong there, what is wrong in one responding to same discussions?

Im with you on this one, I think its unrealistic to think that your not gonna find many similar topics and I think of it as conversation in real life, know what I mean. Alot of new mylot users come on asking in their first posted discussions, "How does this Mylot thing work" and I often respond to a lot of them and while I dont respond word for word every time I respond I just offer them what I know, but this is the same question over and over, I do not think anything wrong with this and I love to help new mylotters,

yes, yes i do. reply messages repeatedly to even the same person may take a little time and may mean pay-free, but making money is not all our aim here, isn't it?
