Do you get mad when??

Someone asks a question on your question? Someone got mad at me about it. I honestly didn't even think about it until after she said something. I understand her frustration now, but at the same time if someone did that to me I do't think I would be upset..or say anything to them about it. I thought we were on here to help each other and support each other?? Just wondering if I'm the only one who feels this way. Also my question had to do with the question she asked it wasn't just random. I'm not trying to start a debate just want so opinions : )

  • I think any discussion leads to more questions- I have no problem with it and I think it adds to understanding
    Not a big fan of two or three Moms going at it on a post when what they are fighting about has nothing to do with the original question-

  • I have done this myself and gotten chewed out for it, but it doesn't bother me at all if someone does this.

  • I do get irritated when a Question turns into a group post. If you want to discuss it, post it in a group. If you want answers without a discussion, you post a question.

  • I think more questions SOMETIMES will help people to answer a question more accurately. Someone may not understand something and will ask so they can better help, others will see that too. Just my opinion though. I don't get mad about it.

  • No, I think that is the point the more questions the more answers. If someones asks a questions within a question sometimes you can get more info and help someone more.

  • Depending on what it is about, it can come across as sarcastic. I would just assess the situation before you answer a question with a question next time. :o)

  • I hate it when a question turns ugly because someone else doesn't agree with an answer. I got voted down several times on someone's question because I answered the question in a humorous way and people thought I was serious, even after I explained that I was just me facetious. I mean really, don't get so worked up over crap.

  • I read a question yesterday and a different one popped into my head, but it was based on the orignal one, so i refrained from posting it.

  • Only if the questions has nothing to do with the original question. Sometimes asking more questions helps to solve the original issue, it helps the OP work through their problem or see new ways to handle the issue.
