Do you read first?

When you post answers in myLOt, do you first review others answers before posting? or you answer right away? I personally answer first before reviewing answers of others so as not to be influenced by their responses

I tend to read the other responses first, unless there is pages of them and then I might skim - I do it mainly so as I just don't go and repeat something that has already been said a hundred times :-) Sometimes that may mean I either don't leave a response at all, while other times it may mean that I make a comment to someone elses response. Either way I like to make sure that when I enter a discussion if I'm going to leave a response I want it to because I have something new to add etc.

I read the entire post-responses and comments included-first. From it, I would deside if I would just leave a comment or make my own response. But most of the time I answer those posts with no response. So there's nothing to read but the discussion post. And my response will be anadulterated meaning nothing or no one influenced me.

Definitely whenever I respond to any discussion I first read the whole discussion make up my mind and then only I start replying to it because I think if we don't know what are we talking about them how can we make sense. Apart from that I had really experienced that quality content does matter on this website. If we have related content to the discussion then in the context we get more money. And also we will not be reported as an abused response which is very much important so to do that we have to first read the discussion and then respond to it

Generally i answer right away, but sometimes i scroll down and just browse through the answers at random. And no, i don't feel i can be influenced as to what others will have to say about it then base my answer with the majority, this one of th ereasons why is mylot is great is because you get to hear from different views and it can really be enriching.

I also read responses from others but after I post. Not way, I wont forget "that" original answer that's on my mind when I was first reading the question

It's not a question of being influenced by others responses, because we have our own principles and beliefs but it's good to read first (this being what i'm doing) to avoid a repetitive answer and to see other members point of view. It's different when trying to answer a discussion that has over 1000 answers :) Just kidding!
