I tend to like making discussions more than responding. Maybe it's because there's a slight bit less effort involved... lol, I don't know.

I don't start many discussions. I prefer to respond to other people's discussions and especially to join in on-going discussions or debates, just so long as they are courteous, friendly and respectful. I disagree that starting discussions requires less effort. If the essence of myLot is observed, you are required to READ and RATE EVERY response to your discussion and comment on those which add something to the discussion. If you have many responses, this requires effort - sometimes much effort - but I consider it worthwhile effort.

I tend to spend most of my time commenting on people who answer my dicussions. I don't start very many, cuz it's hard to come up with ideas. So I just respond. Here is a discussion I started that I'd like you to visit, and add to if it applies... http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/968758.aspx

I tend to respond more than making discussion. I spend most of my time browsing around to see what's going on in the discussions and try picking something which interest me. I do start discussion from time to time but it's not often.

Hey I prefer to make discussions! Although, quite the contrary rite now that I am responding to a discussion hehe. I also think it takes less effort to make a discussion. I like to hear what people will say to my own discussion. Some of my random thoughts are good! Uhh, let'z see here. Also, I like to just be browsing N at a random time see a discussion I would like to respond to not to go N start searching for discussions like I am doing rite now ughh. :(.

I prefer to make discussions because as you have explained before it takes less effort. But when i'm out of ideas, then I search for discussions which i feel i can respond to very well.

I would rather responding to a discussion.I don't like to start discussions because I can never seem to pick topics that someone hasn't already done several times.

I like responding to discussions her at Mylot, for it is funner if someone thinks of the topic besides myself. I tend to get bored with my topics because they are not very exciting. I get bored easily, so other's topics are more of a challenge for me to relate to and to understand. If the topic hits home for me personally, it makes it easier for me to discuss it. I know that sounds lazy, but I think there is more effort to starting my own topics. I'll give it a shot, though. It's just hard when so many others have the same topic via different words, because I don't want to regurgitate them.

I prefer to respond to discussions. It's difficult right know to start new discussions. Almost all discussions have already been started, you just have to search for them.

I prefer responding to discussions, I usually don't know what to start a discussion about and I'd rather not start one that's already been done plenty of times before.

I guess I spend a lot of my time responding to topics thaat my friends have posted, before I post any topics of my own. I have some wonderful friends on MyLot and really enjoy the discussions. I also try to reply to responses on my discussions and rate them too
