When you comment on a poll, do you do so before or after reading the comments of others?

I must have a very old version of SOH. I have no option to view the comments until voting.

Typically after, but if I have a lot of polls to answer, I may make a quick comment and move on.

After, I try not to be redundant.

Both. But initially it's before reading comments.

I'll only read comments before if I'm not exactly sure what the question is about.

I read the comments first sometimes but not always. It depends on the question. Some ask fir your personal we experience with something so I comment and then read.

After because I like to see what other people would say

Mostly after, if there are less than maybe 30 comments. I don't have time to read everything.

Most often post, read & additional comments in reply. But not always.

After. I know my position, but I don't want to nearly mirror the comment of others.

Same here. Then I usually find that I've said the same thing as so done else.

Oh, I read through the comments if there are a lot of them. That's what I meant... Gosh, I need to stop commenting today. I've screwed up over and over. /:

Before, that way I try to put out a comment that is me and not swayed by any others. I often end up saying virtually the same as others. But, oh well.

Me too. The only real exception is when there is a comment near the top that says what I would say.

Before, which has been my downfall a few times.
