Must I have bad conscience if I do not answer the topics of my friends here?

I really hard try to find interesting topics here to answer and I feel disabled to answer senseless topics just to get cash. Now a friend here in my lot asked me to answer on his topics, but these are not interesting for me. What should I do? Do you answer all topics of your friends?

Why not read the news articles and comment on them? Why not subscribe to a few blogs and comment on them? Now that those are available there is more to comment on and I bet you can find something truly interesting. YOu can comment on a blog or news right where you read it, then come back tot he discussion area and start a discussion related to the blog or news article. With these new features, these discussions should be getting a whole lot better. NOe more "who cam first, the chicken or the egg" questions should be found before the month is over!

Thanks for the advice. It's a really good idea. Up to now I did not spend a lot of time to read the blogs, but I'll starting right now.

You don't have to feel bad for not answering to every discussion your friends start.Sometimes I just don't have anything to say or I don't know anything about the topic....so rather than posting something senseless....I won't post anything at all. Plus you would have to spend hours on here if you have a very large friends list and they are very active with posting new discussions every day....frankly I don't have that much time I can spend sitting in front of the computer. So I just pick the ones I'm interested in and I feel like I can actually contribute something.I really think most people prefer quality responses over quantity.

You shouldnt have a bad conscience if you don't answer ALL your friends discussions. If they are of no interest to you then you should tell him/her that and that you prefer to be answering topics that are of interest to you. I'm sure he/she will understand. I don't answer all the topics my friends post. Most of the time I don't have time to answer, or sometimes they require longer responses and sometimes because I don't have any interest in them either. So don't feel bad or pressured into responding to friends posts. :)

I only answer topics that are of interest to me. I do not feel compelled to answer my friends topics if i dont find it interesting or something i want to talk about. Its better that way, because then all the topics that i answer, i can answer with more quality. I find that the more interested i am in the topic, the more i can write about it. I dont feel bad about not answering my friends topics if its not a worthwhile answer, it doesnt help you or your friend.
