Do you like to debate on very serious serious issues here, or you just hunt for the easiest ones? How do you search for the discussions you would like to respond to? From their heading, or do you just look into your areas of interests and friends' discussions?

Good topic. I just browse for some discussions from the todays top discussions and the discussions which donot have no responses! I dont search for discussions from my interests. Sometimes there will be no scope for commenting anything about the particular discussion. I just close the browser page and then browse to another discussion......

good point you got there. It is something all of us seem to have in common.People seems to mean serious about topic .they think the topics should be interesting enough and closely related with them.

Most of the time I just try to respond to discussions from my friends, alot of their posts are about stuff that I like to talk about. Really anything but some of the more serious issues, I will stay away from if they're not on my friends list because some people can be very rude. Some people have to understand everyone has different views or opinions about serious stuff. I do respond to some easy ones, just if I think it's something fun, not something stupid like what's your favorite color, what's your name, stuff like that.

I think I only go for those avrage type of discussions, because I try to avoid sensitive topics on which I feel won't turn out good. I only observe those debates and discussions about religions/politics, as I only try to be aware of what other people's views are. If I find a good mylot member's post, I try to open their discussions and read the topic. Most of the times, I end up responding to their discussions too!;) I also look for more wider areas, like those that interests me, friend's posts, recent discussions, new and also on those 'users by location' tabs.

I respond to any and all discussions that I can relate to. I don't just delete discussions right off of the bat. I read through them and see if I have any input or knowledge to add to it first. Sometimes it is hard to find a good discussion to respond to with quantity and quality. I respond to all of the members discussions if I can. It helps me and them out. I look at the heading and I also read what is inside. I try to answer everything they ask also.

I am interested in many topics. I susually respond to discussions that spark a desire in me to answer. I check the discussions my friends have started, then go to today's hot topics, then to discussions with no answers. Often I find the most interesting topics there.

I don't see topics as easy or hard, just as interesting or not. I read the heading and the first couple of lines, and if it intrigues me or I have an opinion, I'll look into it further. The ones I pass on are the ones where there are so many replies that anything I add will be irrelevant, and ones where the topic isn't very clear.

I look mostly for friends discussions and new postings. I have found that some friends are not in mylot anymore even though it looks like it. I try to watch the post to insure best answer has not been picked. Almost never post after that. I also quite often look at some special interest. Relationships is one of my favorites.

Well ... sometimes.. but not many times.. lol.. I usually search for easy easy discussions specially the ones in which I can relate myself with it.. or I can share something.. But the most important thing is the language of discussion should be easy so that I can understand it :)

I don't look for the easiest. The serious ones make me think. I don't answer a serious issue right away. I like to think before I post my response. The way I find the discussions I read and respond to is the first ones I look at our my friends. I see which one peaks my interest and respond to it. Then I will go to my area of interest and see which ones I think I would like to respond to. And then I go over to all the different discussions. I spend a lot of time here. I love it and like learning the different things I have since I have been here. All the different viewpoints are outstanding.

Well I normally go through my friends' discussions first (I am notified of them via email), and if these run out, I tend to go to new discussions, or those with no responses, to try and get them off the ground. I am obviously attracted to those which I can relate to - so I love topics about cats, kittens, and pets in general, and also those specifically relating to Britain, such as British news, media, current affairs or whatever, as I feel I can contribute more to these. I tend to shy away from those which look like they may be deleted (referral links, spam etc) as they are wasting my time and not earning me any money, and anything too Amercian in context (about WalMart or US TV or whatever) are also a no-no for me. I also tend not to contribute to religious discussions, because these often just tend to turn into "slanging matches", and people giver out Neg Reps for no good reason apart from the fact you don't agree with their particular viewpoint.

I usually only have time to answer my friends discussions which are sent to my email. When I finish them if I have time I check in my areas of interests. Sometimes I check 'discussions with no responses' to see if there are any there which I can answer. I lot serious debates and discussions especially ones where I feel like I helped someone.

I am mostly a moderate person. I do not like debates, where feelings get hurt and people get mad.I like useful discussions. Not necessarily the easy discussions, but no flame wars, either. I usually start with my friends but I do not always answer all of their discussions.

I usually answer most of my friends' discussions, unless it's about a topic that doesn't appeal to me, or one that i haven't much to say about. Then i check into the new discussions, or discussions with no answers, and answer the ones that appeal to me.

I like discussions that make me think - the topic doesn't really matter. I've enjoyed a lot of yours! I look through my friends discussions first, then the new discussions. By then, I'm usually exhausted. I don't like the frivolous ones - like "what kind of soap do you use" (just an example...I haven't seen that one yet).

I like a variety of discussions. There are days when I want the debating the issues and really thinking about my responses and then there are other days where I want the fluff type discussions. The ones I don't have to think about, like what movies I like to watch. Then there are days were I do a bit of both. I don't think I could handle always doing the deep, intense discussions. It would get boring or frustrating. The same with all non-serious ones. It wouldn't be fun to answer those either all the time. I do look at the headings and the top part of the discussions for searching for them. I also look in my interests, my friends sections and also the ones without responses. I'm all over the place :)

I always check my friends discussions first and then I will go to the discussions with no responses, I like to help people out there. I usually choose a discussion that is relevant to me in some way so I don't end up typing a book that says nothing ...:}
