Which discussion do you respond to?

Do you choose to respond to a discussion depending on the subject? or are there other factors? Do you prefer responding to discussions that seem to have been responded by someone before or do you like to be the first one? Or do you just respond to your friends and/or selected users discussions? Do you stay away from discussions that have many responses which makes you think that your response may not be noticed? Do you keep away from new user discussions? Do you look for discussions in the top discussions / hot topics area or do you search for them in your interests?

The discussions I response to must contain the factors following: I can understand it's meaning easily. And after reading the topic, I feel that I have something to say. Finally, I will wait the writer to response me back.

So would it make no difference to you if there were like 50 posts already... more or less matching your answer? would you still post?

Usually I don't want to respond to the topic that already has 50 posts,because I won't have the enough patience to read all the posts.Without reading all of them,if my point is same or similar with someone's,it surely will be a waste of time doing such a foolish thing.

I merely respond to discussions that interest me, and that I have something substantial to say about, I don't believe in responding out of pity if someone has no responses, or responding to a hot topic just because it seems to be so popular, in fact, i never even go to the 'hot discussions' section, because they're almost always about the same things. It doesn't matter whether a discussion has zero or 100 responses, if I can add something to it that would make it better, then I do it. So this is my order of responding to discussions. First, I check out 'my friends discussions' because obviously they share the same interests as me that's why we're friends, but i don't respond to all their discussions, only something I can answer to. Then, discussions from my interests and then i go to 'discussions with no responses' because mostly they are more interesting than the so- called 'popular discussions'. I don't think there are any rules and everyone likes to do their own thing, but the number of responses on a discussions don't really affect my decision in any way.

I always try to respond to my friends discussions first then I surf around mylot and pick out the ones I like to respond to. If I have some time then I will come to discussions that have no responses and add my two cents.
