do you read what other users have said before you give your opinion or do you give your response straight away?? I usually give a response straight away if that discussion interests me or if i can answer that question well enough. But sometimes, i do read what other users have given to help me decide what i think is ideal.

I look and browse at discussions posted by friends and other people.I look around first and read the headings.Then i respond to only those that interest me and i have something to say about.

I read what others say first, this way I know what has already been stating and try rephrasing it another way. However, if you catch a discussion right away you may not get to read what others write. Today, I responded and someone else was responding at the same time.

Sometimes i maybe read other's response if i have plentiful time ,but i often read other's opinion just after responding the discussion cause i am afraid that other's response will influence my answer.

I like to read what other users are saying to know the opinions of other members of the forum on the topic as one gets fair idea of what has already been discussed so that i don't end up repeating what others mentioned. As i would like to contribute to the discussion through my posts. Besides i also follow mylot guidelines which also clearly state that members should go through other responses before responding to a discussion. Happy posting :)
