I don't read what others have posted as comments, I just make a comment based on what I'm thinking, short or long, but often find I have repeated what someone else has said. Commenting stampers think alike?

I don't care if someone wrote the exact same thing as me, and I'm sure the card creator doesn't care either! Who doesn't love comments in any way shape or form??

I usually just say what I thought about the card regardless of what someone else has said. But I usually skim over what others have thought.

I try to read them if there are only a few, but if there are pages, I don't read them, and comment on what comes to mind first.

Not too often because some of the posts/replys are so long that it would take a day or two just to go through them. Once in a while though I read some and find them pretty interesting. Some times you read others posts and they are very helpful. I guess it depends on what section I am in and posting to.

can i change my answer?! i answered "read and skip" if someone said something that i was going to say, and i really only do that for forums, not cards! (read the question wrong!).

For cards, i post w/out reading comments regardless because we all want high numbers, right??!! If the card already has 2+ pages of comments, i don't always leave a comment tho... figure they got their luv! I try to leave comments on the cards w/few comments.

For forums, i read and skip posting if everyone's said what i was going to say most times...

really depends on how much time I have - if I have time and there aren't pages of comments I will skim through and try to comment on something on the card that hasn't been mentioned yet. If I'm in a rush I just leave my initial reaction eg fab card, great colour scheme/layout etc

When ever I see a card I like, I always leave a comment. Can't always be original - just write what strikes me about the card. I'm always greatful for any comments on my cards. Duplicates or other! I voted on the second choice.

Just write what I feel - people seem to want to know what you liked about their cards - more than just that it was cute, so if I liked the ribbon or something and so did 5 other people - that's what you are gonna hear. If I just liked it b/c it was cute, you will hear that too.

I rarely read the other comments before I post.

I usually don't read through the other comments first, mainly because when I like a card enough to make it a favorite, I'm telling the artist what I liked about their card.

Sometimes I do read through some of the comments after I post a comment though. It's fun to see what other similar and different tastes there are, and what other people notice that's different that what I notice.

This is what I do. Sometimes they point out something I did not notice. But if they are really long; the skimming stops and I leave my comment.

I have very little time to casually cruise the gallery these days, so I try to be as expedient as I can.

Typically, if time permits, I say *exactly* what I thought the instant I saw it, and without reading through anyone else's comments.

Nope, I usually just leave my thoughts. If more than one of us has similar opinions, isn't that a good thing?! I sometimes go back and read other posts if I don't understand how the card was made (sometimes shows up later) but guess I generally just leave my own perspective. You know what they say, 'I gotta be me!" And, no, similar comments wouldn't bother me (unless they all said my card was AWEFUL!)
