  • I don't take these answers very seriously.... Don't get me wrong I love to hear what everyone has to say and I value everyone's opinion but to me this is just for fun. If I'm looking for a serious answer for something this is probably not the first place I would turn.

  • My questions are rarely serious... if they are then I listen to everyone that has given an intelligent answer. by intelligent I mean not off the wall or bashing.

  • Most of them very seriously. I have asked a few questions just for fun so those I don't take seriously. When I ask for advice on an issue I am looking for insight not an answer to my problem. Only you can make decisions for yourself but it helps to get some input.

  • It depends on the question. If I'm asking for advice from someone else's experience, I take it seriously. Granted, I'll still use common sense and make my own decision, but I've gotten plenty of good ideas from moms on here. If I ask a question in a debate forum, or religious section, I'll take the answers with a grain of salt. But even the things I don't agree with can be well written and worth reading!

  • Very. I like having a wide variety of opinions and hearing how others think. I don't always like the answers I get, but I take them seriously and appreciate them.

  • I'll be honest, I'm not going to post something that I consider very serious, I find that isn't good for me. But for less emotionally involved stuff, I really appreciate the answers. My most recent question's answers were super helpful, I shared them with hubby, and we decided we're doing something differently in the future. (Not a big deal, just reassuring us that we were on the right track.) I appreciate every answer.
