Some discussions starting like 'have you ever smoke?', 'have you ever drank alcohol?' and of similar pattern. I can post hundreds of question like this in here to increase number of my postings. But worndering is it good, or how my friends feel about starting this types of discussions. I have seen in this types of dicussion replies are poured in.

Well unless there are other questions behind that first question or unless there is a long opinionated or debatable discussion attached to that discussion then I would say that it's just a way to increase the post count and make a bit of money. However what some people do not realize that the best way to increase your earnings here is to respond and write discussions that are well thought out and lengthy. Right now beside my own writing it says to be as descriptive as possible. I do not expect everyone to be descriptive nor do I expect every response to be lengthy as I myself have gotten tired of writing so many lines or being descriptive, but I would hope that these discussion are lax and that the more thought out discussions are seen more then those that are not very well thought out and are just thrown together words.

mokbul to me this seems so darned simplistic and are really sort of annoying, as almost everyone at some time has done that, about as interesting as asking have you ever ate dinner? Thats so trite, make it more interestingand ask have you ever ate out at a foreign cafe like a russian restaurant or a german style restaurant? What was your experience like? Good, Bad or just fair? Now that might give people more scope to respond as they might find it much more interesting.

heh. I wonder how they are getting the pouring in. I've seen discussions that don't seem all that interesting rated as being "hot" with thousands of replies. I assume they must be very popular members.
