I would read a few of the responses in some discussions, not all definitely and especially when there are already a number of responses already there to the discussion. This happens when the discussion is unique or if for some reason the message is not clear. in the cases of direct questions like your discussion here i would not have read other responses if there were any, because i know exactly what i want to say.

every discussion or response i reply is read by me. if i don't read it carefully, i can't write back and don't know what to write. furthermore, earning money here can only be called bonus, not big money or big enough to support life, i've spent two months here, write quite often and quite a lot, but all together is less than my real daily income or even less than half. let alone i haven't truly received the earning here and not sure if i can really get the money. so, writing or discussing , i do it mainly for fun not for money. the bonus is catalyst.

you number of responses posts is 774 and i guess you must have reached the payout...you will get paid by the next month if you reached the min. payout this month..and yes you could not make out your living by the earnings here...as you said,it might be a catalyst....i'm a student and so,this is my real monthly earnings and even a single dollar will make me happy!

yeah, you are quite right. i do reach my cashout, but the trouble is i'm not sure whether i left the right email for my paypal. so i'm not sure about my earnings. anyway, good luck to you. study hard, and that promises you a better chance for career.

of course i will read it first to avoid respond wit different ideas not based on the topic and will lead to negative impression from fellow mylotters. i always read and know frist the thoughts of the post so that i can share also my ideas related to the post. it is important specially if you want earn more here.

Hi there dreamssri! When responding to a discussion, I often browse the responses already posted. That is very true especially if the topic is a little controversial. Well, of course, even if it is not that controversial. I do not read them all though. There are times when I am really in a rush as I only have few minutes to allot so I just post my respond immediately.

you said it right...when it comes to controversial topics,it really makes me to read almost all the responses...and of course,you are also right with the point,while we have only ample time to spend,we are forced to read only few responses!

If I am responding to a discussion it usually depends on how many people have responded before me if it is only a couple,then I will usually read there responses before writing my own response,but if there are several pages I will read the first page worth before making a response because I think it would take too much time and effort to read every other response if there is several pages worth and that is time I could be responding to several discussions.

Yes, I read everybody's reponses. Then write my response. Some times I put a comment on others' responses also.

if there is only a few responces I will go through and read them but if theres alot of long ones and its a topic I really want to post my opinion on I probably wont read them in detail until after I have already made a responce. Either way I usually run through all of the responces quickly reading ones that stand out more in detail. theres just so many topics and interests that its hard to read everything LOL.

Hi there Dreamssri! I read the responses if there aren't lots of them that it will take me half an hour to read them all. But that rarely happens too because I rarely post a response to discussions with more than five pages of responses.

yeah,i very very rarely respond to such discussion that is for the discussions with more than 50 responses...but in that i wont read all of the responses given!

No, I never do that because the moment I have and received every discussion from my friends discussion then for sure I always response it direct to my own understanding it is much more easier ......

i always go directly responding to post, just like what happened here now. i always respond from my email notification so i wouldn't see or tempted to read other posts and as not to be affected in my response or what i am going to write. after i responded to all notifications, that's the time i stay in the homepage and respond to all my interests and jump to the other from there. i seldom take a peek on somebody's response before making mine.

I always read all the discussion first and then start my discussion. I want to make my response suitable with the topic of the discussion. If the discussion is not very understand me, so I won't respond it. I don't want to make a wrong response. Keep post happy myLotting...
