Do you respond to everyone that responds to your discussions?

I try to response to a great majority of my responses, but there are some I just don't know how to respond to. There are even some responses that I would just end up repeating what I said to an earlier response. I hate repeating myself on these things.

I try to respond to any discussion i find intresting its not important for me that i respond to the people who respond to mine but yes i make it that i atleast respond to their responses the most time they do any period of days.But i dont make it compulsory for myself that i have to return back what they have given me. they are my friends and they know that what i will do will do the right thing.I never repeat on responses infact my responses are long and explanatory. its just if we tend to earn only money here then we tend to reply anyhow but if are planning to earn money smartly then we will discuss and respond to their topics wisely

I try to respond to discussions when I can. Sometimes it can be diffcult.

I think posting comments to the response from others is showing our respect to them. I do that any time.

I understand that. I'm just trying to do the best I can with my answering. Sometimes there just seems to be no answer I can give them.

I try to respond to most of the responses that i get in my discussions. But when i dont have much time i just ignore for that moment and come there later when i have time. Responding to the responses we get is something like showing that we read their responses. Happy myLotting...

I don't always have time to respond to people myself. I just do what I can with the time I have. There just needs to be more time in the day.

I would rather like to give my thanks to every response to my discussions. However, I think I need to improve my English first so I can better understand what you guys are talking about. "Smile".

That is definitely a good way to practice your English skills. There's never an easier way to do it, then with other English speaking people.

I like to respond to people. At least they know I have acknowledged what they have said. Even if I have to repeat myself, I like to change the words around. I also like to see if people respond to my comments.

That could work. Although, repeating can be a bit on the tedious side.

Hi, I try to respond, but like you say, there are times when there's nothing to reply to. I used to write 'Thank you for responding and....', but someone posted about replying this way - if I have nothing better to say besides 'Thank you', don't post! (wasting their time, it seems). So I don't do that anymore, just give the responder a positive rating.

Usually, I don't respond to one liners only because I woldn't have any thing to say that guy or girl. If the response has something to be commented then it should be commentted but not those one liners. But yes, if there is only one response and that too is one liners, then I do add comments to them. Otherwise, I do try to comment on most of the resonses I get for my discussion.

Yes I respond to every single person who responds on my discussions. Not to thank them but to show them I am aware of the effort they made and hopefully to leave some sort of comment which might make them return and add something more too. This is one of the reasons I do not start many discussions. It takes time to comment on all the responses and, knowing that, I prefer to concentrate on commenting rather than making other discussions and then not having time to comment.

I will try and post a response if they give me something to work with, that is, if their response makes a good point, is reasonable, or leads me to think of something else. I try and keep the conversation going as much as I can. However, it's not always possible to do. And in those cases where I just can't think of anything else to say, but thanks for responding, I just leave it as it is. I can't imagine what the person will gain from it. It'll just be another email they wasted time opening. A fair balance that adds to the discussion is what I like, but I know some people feel obligated to respond in turn to every poster. I don't and I guess that's just my personal preference. Happy My Lotting.
