I get a few comments on blogs that are not related to anything I wrote, some people will do it just  for the points. It makes no sense to me, since just having the points really has no impact on your business, its the networking and posting good content that leads to possible business.

Not sure I have noticed that, i mean how would I even know what to type or how to answer if i didnt read the question?  I may not always read others answers before i post, that way I am not allowing their views to taint my own.  Most of the time I will read the other answers after I post to see other opinions, they do tend to vary.

I don't know but some of the answers don't match the blog but may relate to a word in the title.

Now this answer will NOT give me any extra point Martin Kalisker as I have already answered 10 questions!

Do I real all comments? I'd say 50-50. Sometimes even I learn from the other answers.

And eventually, it's a race! We all want to be ahead in the game, isn't it?

Many members answer the question for points and many members ask the question for points!

If it is a trivia question then there must be an answer. Do you have the number? It is obvious to all of us when we get a comment that has nothing to do with anything that the post wasn't read. Those people are just doing it for the points and they know it and so do we.

Nice post. Keep up the good work.

What! You mean we should READ the Question before responding!!! Geesh, next thing someone will be suggesting the other comments be read also. And still another would suggest the response not be repetitive, should bring something to the table and not be snarky or snide.

Way too many rules.

Nice post.

I think the majority read or else skim the post.  but, there are certainly those that copy and paste comments and use the same one on each post.  That's a bit annoying.

I suppose that happens... but it is a little silly to comment before you know what or why you are commenting on.

The better question would be "How many read the other comments before commenting on a question?"  So many duplicate answers on questions... which I suppose is a point collection strategy instead of an effort to add addditional value to the comments to the questions.
