    I Delete Them

    I really dislike them, myself. I tend to get very busy at times on EP, and if the computer slows down or EP slows down it can take ages to get to the gestures and then back out again so it annoys me when it's not a gesture to me personally. I delete them when I have time. They...

    Personalize.

     I admit I have sent circle gestures. I do think it is more appropriate to send individual gestures....

    To me, mass gestures are as annoying as the mass greeting cards. They are too impersonal and too generic to even bother to acknowledge them. A simple, Hi, How are you ? inpires me more than dozens of mass greetings ever would. If you don´t have the time to connect with me...

    :-)

    I figure the person is going to get bombarded with a trillion gestures anyway and I don't want to add to it by responding as well.

    Not Usually...

    There are a few people whose circle gestures I will answer but most I will not.I'm starting to think that when people make circle gestures it is for one of two reasons.. a)they want people to know they're still here or b)they may possibly do it in hopes someone will gesture back...

    Impersonal?

    Yeah, and once in a while, because I'll feel bad for not gesturing back, I will send one or two back.  I just don't like it. *shrugs*

    And Never Send Them

    I have to confess, I sent one by mistake once! but I'll never do that again. I think sending a gesture should be personalized. I guess next thing on EP would be mass white board comment! you could write a comment on everyone white board!

    I Don't Mind Them, But...

    I do tend to forget to respond to them.... Because it doesn't feel like a personal greeting. And I do get personal gestures from my other EPeeps, so I tend to answer them first. Then I just forget to answer the mass ones. :-/ My mind drifts elsewhere, very easily! lol. So...

    Not Always.

    I'm not too keen on "mass gestures", because, hey, my feelings get in the way. But I do respond to some with a counter-gesture, depending on who they come from...

    I Sent One

    Because I sort of hinted that I might be leaving, and I was away for a few days I gestured my circle to let them know I was back. I don't anticipate using the "circle" gesture regularly. I don't get the same buzz from recieving a "circle" gesture that I do...
