Do you always respond to everyone that comments on your questions?

I just thought about this randomly. I always try to respond to everyone. It bugs me a little bit when I comment on people's questions and they never respond. I think it's a good way to start conversation and to get to know others. I've become friendly with a lot of people that way.


So what about you guys?

  • I try to because of similar reasons, but sometimes comments are just comments and they don't need to be responded to.

    So the answer is no. But if someone plays the part of a dead fish, I'm going to stop tossing rose pedals on their parade. At some point a non-responder is just being a total dick and has no place in my life.

  • If you don't want to respond to comments, why sign on to an advice site? I totally agree with you on this!

  • I always respond back to questions and comments and to inbox replies. I like talking. I don't take it personal when people don't respond back. I know people are busy and their are other reasons people may not reply back.

  • No I do not. I don't think that is needed. I certainly do not expect it unless there is something specific they want to say about what I wrote. Esp If the comment is basically the same as many of the others. If there is something I want to say to everyone that commented I will put an update at the top. Otherwise I just reply to those that I want to specifically reply to.

  • I've responded 99% of the opinions I received on my questions because I have nothing better to do.

    #Challenge : don't respond to this opinion.

  • I'm not gonna lie lol I used to/sometimes force comments on opinions just to get it back in the feed :D lol but I'm trying not to do it as much because I feel like I'm annoying some people.
    Sometimes I force updates too
    One time I got one answer on a question I asked so I posted this update: "When you post a question thinking you'll get many responses but you end up only getting one..."
    And you know what? Another person answered... one lmao

  • That's very courteous of you, which is something I admire in a person. I don't ask a lot of questions, but when I do I try to respond to as many answers as I can. Like you say, you never know where that will lead. Happy Easter!

  • sometimes it takes me a few days because I don't have the time to go through all them, like right now I have 63 notifications and some questions I haven't looked at for a little bit, I ALWAYS try to comment on everyone's opinions on my question, that way they KNOW I read and value their opinions. I think it's very important that people know they are being listened to, whether we agree or not doesn't matter, the fact remains that they took the time to answer my question, I can take the time to acknowledge I read theirs.

  • For the most part, yes. I will try to respond cuz it's rude to me to ignore others. Sometimes though, I don't know what to say so I'll just upvote them. Or if it's someone being really stupid, maybe not.
    But if people actually took the time to make a decent comment, I will try to respond to them.

  • Yes I do! If someone has the time and effort to read my question and comment, they deserve a response.. It's like "thanks for commenting you get a response" lol

    But sometimes you get so much comments and you're like -___- omg so much comments to get through!

  • I try to! Especially if it has to do with replying to people I'm already friends with. Sometimes I read comments when I'm in the middle of doing something else and I'll totally forget to reply, though. Or sometimes I just don't have the brain energy to think up a significant enough reply.

  • Yes I always try to say something to everyone! Always. But, sometimes my eyes become tired after responding to like 100 or so people (I may accidentally miss one or two unintentionally) and 90% of them respond... and then I have on going conversation for days on end on GAG.

  • I respond to the one that grabs my attention. I don't have time to respond to all of them unless my question revolves around a problem I'm having, then I'll try to get as many perspective as possible thus I'll respond to all of them.

    I read all of my comments anyways. Plus i don't owe anyone anything. they are getting their xper point afterall, and a thumbs up if their comment aren't dumb :) (i do forget to thumbs up sometimes)

    • Oh well yeah, of course you don't owe anyone anything lol. I guess that's just the way I am.

    • @asker i mean it's good out of respect to show that you acknowledge their comment. But sometimes there's time you feel like a comment is good standing on its own, for example

      Question: Who like chocolate?
      Reply: I like chocolate
      Me trying to respond: ... (no room for convo though u can start one but why waste it?) lol

    • Lol oh I definitely get it. Sometimes the comment doesn't warrant a response.

  • Oh yes, I always try to. It's a good way to get to know people better and I want them to know that I value their time and opinions.

    • Everybody always wants to act like it's so uncool to make a friend on here lol. That's not what I meant. Thanks anyway tho.

    • It's not "uncool", it just impractical.
      This site is not designed as a social network so it's not convenient to use it as one.
      Not to mention that building a reputation on a site where my anonymity allows me to say anything I like and things I truly mean would be detrimental.

    • I've said it before, I'll say it again. It's almost impossible NOT to make friends on a site where you're interacting with the same people everyday. To each his/her own tho. Everybody's not the same. I get it.

  • Depends on the comments and on my mood. Sometimes I just want answers and no discussions.

    Besides, I'm past my "wanting to know other GAGers" phase lol
