    I Do

    I only comment on a story if I've read it.  It's incredibly rude to do otherwise.  How many of us have been talking to someone only to have a third person step in and comment on the halfway overheard conversation?  In my opinion, commenting on something you haven't...

    I Skim Through

    Yeah. I skim through stories that I comment. One: The story is too long or I don't feel like reading it. Two: I  just comment without reading it. Three: I read the Title of the story and I read the start of the story and I comment. Four: ...

    Many Times...

    ...I read a comment on a story (usually not someone in my circle) and wonder if they have even read what I wrote.  It's like they are commenting on a different story, or something they imagine to have read. I won't list specific examples, but I'm sure if you've been on...

    ....

    I am glad that DW started this group because I know I read a lot more stories than I comment on and I always read the entire story.  I do not however always read every comment posted to it before I comment.  I try to read all the comments but then I get in a hurry...

    Maybe Some

    I think some people do however I also think they have their mind made up before they finish the story.  And some before they even start reading i am sure.  If you want to test this just make a comment that would be outside the wide and shallow main stream of thought...

    It's Actually Pretty Funny

     I have significant evidence to suggest that many people don't. One example: I was feeling silly a few days ago. I joined a group called "I Have Fallen Up the Stairs." I joined because it reminded me of an episode of "Lost" and so it made me laugh. For...

    I'm easy to get along with but it doesn't make me want to let people in so easily. Sure I accept people for who they are but it's always my choice whether to trust them or not.

    A reason why many people don't get along, it's because they won't accept each other for who they are. It's why people don't become and stay as true friends, it's why couples get...
