When answering a question....

Do you read what everyone else has answered first or do you just answer it without seeing how the conversation is playing out?

Just curious

  • Read it first. Way too much draaaahma on this site starts from people who spout off an answer into the middle of a conversation without having read the conversation first.

  • Both... depends if its a serious topic and debate/conversation or a simple fun question.

  • Sometimes I read the thread sometimes I just answer the question. It all just depends on the question I guess...

  • Try to read most of the answers,, BTW--you are one of my favorites!

  • I do both. It really depends on the questions. I just answered this one without reading lol, but if it's a heated debate question or something, or something I'm not sure if I can answer well, I usually read and then decide if I'm going to answer.

  • I like to read everyones answer. Sometimes, okay, most times I find some entertaining reading on here :)

  • Depends. If I'm answering "What is your favorite food?", I'll just give my answer. If it's anything that could remotely turn into any kind of debate or argument, I read first.
