Do you read people's argument/debate description?
In older debates where there is a lot going on I usually only read arguments if:
- I know a person (read a lot of their arguments in the past)
- Someone has many up votes
... Yeah, that's about it. If I'm going to add an argument though, I usually check out what the people w/ negatives had to say, just to get a better idea of what's been going on... and then I'll get all of the people w/ 0 or 1 votes. It's easier to get the 0's and 1's because they are typically pretty short.
I always read the debate description though.
Side: Yes in a way
I'm so overwhelmed by the sheer number of arguments and debates that I just wing it and hope I get it right. Kinda like with spelling, I just pick a word form the list and hope it's the right one. This method allows me to argue on more debates than if I took the time to read what people have to say. I mean, it's not like they're gonna change my mind! I know they say that it's good to keep an open mind but I'm afraid that if I do that my brains will fall out.
Side: heck no
