Basically what I want to know is...
-How much time do you give to a response?
-Do you respond more towards the comment that was made, or just thank the commenter for their participation?
-How often do you go to their site and respond to one of their posts? (If they provide a link that is)
-Or is auto-response really the way to go?
This is not really an issue that is giving me problems, I'm just curious to see how you guys approach this issue.
