    When you reply to someone on here that you don't know, do you check out their profile and recent posts?
    I do it all the time if I'm posting more than once on a thread or answering a difficult question.
    The trouble is that a lot of people don't give information on their profiles :(

    This would be a good idea as you can get to know about them before you reply to them, especially if you view their existing posts. But I dont think most people would do this before every reply as it could be very time consuming.

    I do if it is a long conversation, and it goes on for a few pages.

    It is good to find out about each other. x:D

    Most times I do try to have a quick peek before replying but not all :D
     
  8. I don't - but if I reply to a few I do tend to!
    having said that I think I have deleted my profile!

    I don't do it before every post, just those that seem to have an important issue to deal with or I'm not sure about the background of the person and feel I may need to be a little careful with my own post

    I never have rona. I don't have much time, and dip into the forum when I can. However, it would be nice to actually read about someone that you are answering. As always - good point :)

    What would you like to know? I'll give an honest answer to any question.

    I always find it a bit awkward asking questions via a computer, The person on the receiving end has no idea who they are dealing with.
    I very rarely answer questions about myself. :)

    I check most peoples profiles. I often check out posts and threads from months and months ago, via their profiles. Makes for good reading sometimes.

    Yes, that is very true.
    Its a toughy because you can never know what a person is really like or know what sort of life they have had or are having via the computer and they may not put all their personal stuff on their profile either!

    I guess it would depend what was being asked whether I would answer any questions :D
