If you don't understand a question on this app, do you look up the part you don't understand on the Internet, or do you just read the comments and then make your decision?
Comments first, if I have an interest in it, I might research it further. If not, I'd probably just move on.
Sometimes one, sometimes the other. If there's enough information in the question that I can do some research first, I usually do that. But not always.
I usually skim the comments first to see if I can understand through them and then research.
