poll: do you read the comments before, after, or neither?

icon: "curious (my face, looking straight forward with one eyebrow up and a sideways smile, head tilted down a little)"

I realized just now that I usually do not read other people's comments before leaving my own, because I do not want to sway my response -- yet I often do read the comments before adding mine in places that aren't LJ. So I want to see if this is unusual, or if there is a discernible pattern to be found.

Poll #2048714 reading comments on LJ and elsewhere

Do you read the other comments before leaving your own, here on LJ?

70-100% of the time
18(40.0%)
40-70% of the time
10(22.2%)
10-40% of the time
8(17.8%)
less than 10% of the time
9(20.0%)

what about on facebook and other places?

70-100% of the time
22(50.0%)
40-70% of the time
11(25.0%)
10-40% of the time
6(13.6%)
less than 10% of the time
5(11.4%)

How often do you read all the comments on other people's posts?

70-100% of the time
8(17.8%)
40-70% of the time
20(44.4%)
10-40% of the time
12(26.7%)
less than 10% of the time
5(11.1%)

Which situation makes you more likely to comment?

when there are lots of comments
2(4.3%)
when there are only a few comments
7(14.9%)
when no one else has commented
5(10.6%)
none of these are relevant factors for me
33(70.2%)

what makes you more likely to read the comments on someone else's post?
