  • Most of the time no. I try to let my answer be MY answer.

  • I do a lot of the time, but not with every question.

  • It depends on my time

  • I normally answer it myself and then go back and read other people's responses (and vote up ones I agree with-either in full or partially, find funny, etc),

    If there are only a few answers so far, sometimes I'll read them before I answer.

    Some questions I just move on without even reading other responses too. Or if I'm short on time on and it's a long thread, I'll try to remember to read them later

  • Nope, I answer and move on.

  • Yes - usually things get clarified or the question shifts along the way. Some of the nastiest arguments start because of someone responding to something on page one that was clarified on page 3, and it looks like they're trying to start it up all over again on page 6.

  • I mostly answer the question first, then read the other responses.

  • No, I just answer the questions. Sometimes I will go back and read the other responses after I have answered. Sometimes, not all the time.
