I read through mylots discussion guide lines. In the Dont column it says that respond to a discussion until you've read all responses.What does it really means,i dont understand,Bcoz i am very interested in knowing others comments.So i am reading all the responses. Also it is another way of not to repeat others comments.I think that they were about to say not to copy others comments.Am i right?

Most of the time, I immediately respond to the notifications I have had in my inbox and that would mean, I did not read all those response from other members. I really don't go that way and I just immediately respond to discussions when I have something to contribute and after I have posted my response that would be the time when I have the chance to read some responses and not all of them as well I am going to read.

Hi There! Good Evening! I have to be honest with you; I don’t really read all of the responses from other discussions especially when there are too many to read. If I am into responding discussions, I would carefully read the discussion then the first few responses then after that, I reply to the thread. If I have the time, I would really browse the thread but mostly, no, I would just simply jump into other discussions that I like. I think the reason why mylot administrators say that we need to read all responses is to be aware what the topic is really all about or so…And yes, it is other way of not repeating the comments as well… that is a good point. I try to read them all but I just give my insights most of the time. Thanks for the discussion. Happy Mylotting! Cheers!

I've asked before and no one told me, how to get to the responses before you send your own? So I gave up and just write what I think.
