How do you respond to a question asked in Hubpages ?
It was just out of curiosity that this question arose in my mind. My tendency is to give answer straightaway without looking at answers given already. This creates a kind of suspense. After having finished my answer, I go through all answers one by one so as to know some kind of similarity or any difference. This way, I get a great pleasure ,thrill and relishing of the question and answers as well. This is like witnessing a sport or a short film. What is your intake about all this ?
I read the question -think about it-and answer. I read all of the other comments after I respond because I think those answers can sometimes influence you to respond with the group, and not give your full, honest response to the question.
My naturally tendency is to write the first thought that comes to my brain, be it germane or not.
I tried to type "Like this", and submit the answer, but hubpages wouldn't allowed such a short answer. So, I instead decided to explain to you how I tried to answer, that way it would be long enough.
I never reply in codes or key words whereas coded questions need to be answered in coded languages only. I am very poor at codes and I do not as to how my plains speaking is taken by the questioners. But I try to be as honest as I can. More than 10 time plain questioners have adjudged the plan answers as Best Answers and that makes me feel that there if life even without coding at HP.
I always respond to the question before reading any answers because I want to give my point of view without being influenced by other answers. Then I may read a few of the other answers.
I answer if the question generates any interest in me. If it does, I respond or I just ignore it. I never answer a question if it is out my knowledge level. I love the practice of asking and answering question as it gives us some involvement and of course a little bit of publicity too.
I usually read through the responses, if there are any, before posting my answer. If someone else has already said what I was going to say, I type that agree with so-and-so. If I have anything to add to someone else's response or no one has said what I want to say, then I add that or write my own full response.
It is an approach that is all encompassing and giving dignity to all answers before putting up one''s own. So nice of you to have given such a wonderful response. Thank you very much.
