I respond if I have something to say about the topic.  Never really given it much thought, I guess.

If I have an opinion, and if I think that my opinion is helpful.  Usually, it is not. LOL

 

and I respond to most dress posts.

Yeah if I have an opinion on it. I tend to skip over responding to the ones that are super dramatic…lol. But I usually read them anyway, is that terrible? lol.

If I have something to say, or if the title captures my interest…

I respond if the topic is interesting AND the PPs haven’t already covered everything I’d be likely to say 🙂

Uh. Hm. I gotta think for a second on this one. I’m more likely to respond if there aren’t a lot of responses yet, or if it’s a ring or dress post that I just looove the contents of, which is almost always. Hah. I’m also more likely to respond if I really really agree with someone’s opinion on it, especially if they aren’t the majority. If a ton of PPs have already +1’d someone, or have basically covered every bit of my opinion, no need to reiterate. There’s more I could come up with I’m sure.

If I have something useful to add, I’ll comment. Also, I have to be able to get through the entire first post. If it’s a huge block of text (ever heard of paragaphs?!) or every other word is spelled incorrectly, I won’t read it thus no response.

Hard to answer. But I can tell you what makes me NOT respond to a post – it’s too long and rambly, and/or has a number of misspelled words or grammar errors. I am not going to take time to respond to something that was tossed off in a rush or without the poster reading back over what they’ve written to make sure it’s clear. I don’t expect everyone’s posts to be profoundly composed or anything, but if I have to work at it to make sense of it, I’m clicking right back on the boards for something coherent to respond to.

Usually when I think I can be helpful to the poster. If I find myself starting to respond, and it not being helpful, I click out of it…

@jumpthegun:  I agree with this.

If it hurts my brain to read your block of text, then I’m sorry, I won’t be reading it and therefore you don’t get a reponse.

Pretty much directly correlates with my desire to avoid doing whatever it is I’m supposed to be doing at the time.
