Do you answer discussions which have already selected the best response

January 20, 2007 4:00am CST
do you check out if the discussions which you are answering have already selected the best response and then you don't answer them as you feel you may not get much if you answer such discussions, I respond to the discussions even if the best response is marked if it is interesting to me what about you?

Yes, I do. I just hunt for one or two discussions a day where the best response is not marked. And the rest of the twenty or thirty discussions I respond to may or may not have the best responses marked. I try to spend quality time to read and respond to the discussions in either case, as I think I myself benfit from this practise. This makes my life a bit organised and feel happy that I have written something sensible, though not profound, everyday.

Me too, i still response in the discussion even they have decide best response. Maybe I can't give my opinion which i think it was different from other people response. Here, in discussion we share opinion each other. Me too, i want to share my opinion with them so, although best response has been marked. I still response in those discussion.

It depends. If the discussion falls in line with my choice or interest, I will still put in my response. But if I only want to take it for a past time, I may not respond to it if the best response has already been selected. For me, I don't always select best response because what is best to me might be foolishness to another. In any discussion, there are myriads of responses that equally fit fo answer. So it is difficult for someone to really say one is better especially when everybody has not contributed.

It doesn't matter for me if a discussion or thread already have a best response. The thing is we post our response because we want to help others or we want to have a continuing discussion with the topic starter.

Actually I seldom notice if one has been selected. I don't worry about that. I'm more interested in what people are discussing at the time. If it's something of interest to me I will post or if I feel like I have something to add I will. If I get best response, oh goodie :) but I don't sweat it if I don't. I just keep plugging away.

If the discussion is something that interests me, and I feel I can contribute to it, I do not care if someone has already picked the Best response there. There are many here like me, who have Started a lot of discussions and ours are always being brought back up to the forefront, and why deny a chance to respond and let others know who you are.

Yes, I will still respond to any discussions that had already had their best respond been selected as for me I don't really care about that as long as the topics were interesting to me...I think thats more important.
