I try to reciprocate comments on most posts with the operative word being "try".   Most of my commenting is on posts by those I follow on a regular basis.  For the most part I follow those I find interesting to read.  

 

My participation in the Q&A section is limited to answering questions.  It's typically a quick and easy way to check in to "see" some members I might not otherwise "see".

It depends on the 'depth' of their comment.

"What he/she said' does not merit a follow.

Comments by those who read HALF of the question does not merit a follow.

Not all of them. Some only post market reports, nothing to read. Some don't make nice comments so no to them too.

You earn my readership, so if I follow you it's for 3 reasons:

1. Encourage a newbie. 

2. I like what you post. 

3. It was your birthday, I did it as a gift.
