Do you really think that people read the questions before they answer.

So often the question is not answered. People give answers that do not fit the question.

Is it a matter people just want to share and do not care that the answer does not fit the question or just want the 3 points for answering.

Do you feel frustrated and if so do you let them know that they are off subject?

  • I always read the question before answering, and yes, I feel frustrated/aggravated if the answer does not apply to the question I asked, but I don't fuss about it.

  • I usually read them and reply the best way I can...sometimes getting a bit off topic, but I try to repeat the question in my reply to make sure I'm following along. I don't fuss about it though, just kinda move on to the next reply.

  • I read the questions and sometimes share a similar experience and how I handled it...or answer to the best of my ability.

    However...some of the answers I have gotten make it obvious that the person did not read the question....Just got an answer to a question from about two weeks ago. I stated the my hubby had taken my dd to the ER for a pain in the right side. Someone told me to take her to the doctor.

  • I usually read all the questions and answers(even my own) and even if the answer doesn't have anything to do with the question it frustrates me also but I just move on and figure the person wants the credits and doesn't really read the question thoroughly
