  • On most real questions I do. I mean, if 15 people have offered the same advice before me, what's the point in putting my own two cents in and adding yet another of the same thing?
    On the fun questions, I read them sometimes before, sometimes after. I'm curious about what other people say.
    Some call me nosy, I call me nosy-curious. :-)

  • Before and after I answer. I sometimes will go back to a question to see if anyone has responded to something I posted as an answer, like if I asked a question on the question. Most questions, I will read the other answers and the post an answer and that's it.

  • after I answer, I always want to get my opinion out of my head first before I forget then sometimes, I go back and read other answers.

  • On some I do and on some I don' if there are pages and pages of replies.

  • It depends on the question. Some I do, some I don't.

  • I'll usually skim through the answers that are a sentence or so lol, but if they are long then no.

  • Sometimes. If the question is an opinion question with just a few answers, I might reply without reading. Or if it's got a zillion and one answers and I just want to put my two cents in too (usually because it's a subject I am passionate about) then I'll reply without reading all the answers first.

    But on questions that have one right answer I'll usually read all the replies to make sure I'm not giving duplicate information.
