Do you respond to your friends' discussions if they dont respond to yours?

A lot of times it happens that you, as a courtesy, respond to all your friends discussions but they dont extend the same courtesy to you. Under these circumstances, do you still continue to respond to your friends' discussions for courtesy sake?

Yes of course, I don't really care if they respond to my discussion or not. As long I'm interested with their discussion I will respond them. BTW it's also about the money, If you decide not to response your friend's discussion which don't response to your discussion you will loss a lot of earnings.

How do you loose earnings by not responding to your friends discussions? Sometimes you can't respond to your friends discussions as you know nothing about the topics that they started discussions about.

I usally do, so long as the discussions interest me. I'll usally check out my freinds discussions first then check out the new discussons and on from there. But if my freinds do not post anything that really interests me that day, then I move on.

I reply to my Friend's discussion as I come across them without thinking whether they are responding to my discussions or not. I dont bother regarding this why they dont respond, I just reply them.

I respond to discussions that I have something to contribute. I can't always contribute to the discussions that my friends start, most of my friends were added in the first few days of my being here and I had no idea what to look for I just excepted any one and everyone. So some I probably will never respond to, if they want to delete me that's fine, but I'm not deleting anyone just because they don't respond to my discussions or that I can't respond to theirs. Same for when I just go to new discussions I respond to the ones that I can contribute something to like this discussion. I can give my opinion to it. I can't to all discussions for many different reasons. Of course I might feel differently if my discussions weren't getting responses, LOL. However that's not the case, many of the discussions I have a hard time keeping up with replying back to my responses. I guess that's a good thing. :) For the time being I will continue to respond to the friends that I can, I also have close to 400 friends so their is no way to respond to everyone everyday. But I do have a large variety of topics to respond to and I like it that way. Some people prefer to have a small amount and just post to them and vice versa. I like variety in life so why not here also. :) As always just my 2 cents worth. :)

It happened to me alot, some of them I've already deleted. I understand them not responding to mine, but flooding posts that are nonsense is what ticks me. So I just deleted them, because they are not my lost but I know that I am to them. Almost everyday, I always respond to one of their posts, eventhough I knew that some of them are not that interesting to respond to.. But it seems that they are just relying too much on my, without even giving just a bit of return. I even look back at their discussions that I've responded at, but they couldn't even put a comment on it. So I decided to delete them and look for others here who have conscience and common-sense!;)

I usually not caring who starts the discussion. We are attracting the topic that is making interest to respond. I am always replying to the persons discussion, who are responding to my discussions.

If I come accros their things than offcourse, but I think the interests just gotta be slightly the same. I think that makes it a lot easier, for replying.
