Do you read other's comments or do answer the question without seeing what all has been said..

IF i am about to answer someone's question with a bunch of questions for them.. I read previous posts to see if anyone else asked and if my answers will be answered in a response to them..

and IF YOU ASK QUESTIONS in a comment do you go back to see the answers to give a better answer?

  • When I ask questions yes I go back and read all the answers and respond to questions.
    When I'm answering a question depending on how many answers there are I usually read them and answer the question

  • If I ask questions, I do go back. I don't always read all the other replies before replying.

  • Some questions, I do read the comments. If it's a debate issue with only a few people going back and forth, I ususually skip the drama and just add my own thought. If I asked the OP questions, I will try to remeber to go back and see what she posted and respond from there if I can.

  • I do read the comments to see if anyone has said my response. I may check back to see if other people agree with me but I won't reanswer a question.

  • When I am confident about my position/opinion on a topic, I just go ahead and post it. Then I go back and read others' responses to see how many people were of the same opinion. If I'm not familiar with the topic, I'll read others' responses and gauge my opinion based on what I see.

  • I read only the first page of posts, and I never go back to questions after I've answered.
