i just noticed tht after i respond to someones discussion i get engrossed and i actually read wt others feel about this...and if i have a query in someones response i even respond to that though it is not a discussion started by me..Do u read the other responses on a discussion? why? do u reply to anyone who has responded there?

Actually, according to myLot's rules, you are supposed to read all responses before giving your own in any discussion. Of course, if you're answering from your e-mail this isn't possible, and if a discussion has 75 responses, you'd spent half the day reading them. What I usually do is glance over the responses others have made and then post mine.

Sometimes. It honestly depends on if I'm on here to post like crazy or to kill time. There are some topics that just grab my attention and I will read every reply and will reply to some of those as well.

I'll usually skim through most answers and then press "respond to this discussion". It depends though, because if there are too many pages, I don't want to sift through that many responses so I won't go through every page. That would be a lot of reading! I like to read the posts that are a little bit longer than one or two sentences, because I usually find that they are more quality responses. The ones that just say "I agree", "No", "Yes" and "Maybe", I ignore. I have occasionally commented on a responder's post if their comment is thought-provoking or if I happen to get really excited about their point of view.

Hi nupats, You are doing the right thing and I wanted you to keep up that habit.We are responding to a disussion exclusively putting our own views. But we must also take note of what other's views also because it will enhance the thinking capacity of our own thinking and will also be learning from others. I am just doing what you have put as a discussion and it improved my thinking on putting discussions and writing responses. Good Luck.

It depends on the topic I guess. If topic is interesting then I would read all the replies in a discussion. Sometimes I reply to these answers and it really makes a discussion more interesting. Otherwise I don't bother to read replies if topic is too simple.

oh yes as I find some are very interesting and also to check that I am not repeating someone else's response. sometimes I will even add a comment to an interesting response but not always.

I always try to read others responses after I have written my own response. I do that so that I am not influenced by what has already been written. And if I saw that someone else had responded similarly to what I am thinking I probably would not respond at all! LOL! And yes, I do have a tendency to respond to others responses.

Well, of course. it is important to read some other people's discussion so that you will know their views about the topic and that you can also react to what they say if you have something to say.

I will read it, but mostly not answer it. If discussion starter is asking question which one of the member already give answer, I will skip it and not answer anymore.
