I tried an experiment.

I had this theory that the discussion title might make a big difference in the number of people who are attracted to read and respond to a discussion. I asked the same question two different ways to see what would happen. I got about the same number of responses to each discussion, so my theory didn't pan out this time. What do you think about this theory?

I don't know susieq. I always tried to simplify the title and content of my discussion. At times, just by looking at the title, you will know right away what the poster is asking. I still read the content just to make sure I'm giving the appropriate response.

It all depends on a members interest level at the time of looking at the titles of dsiscussions. I look at the title then look at the first sentence. If it peeks my interest I respond. So it's not just the title but the first sentence as well in my eyes. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
