FAQ

I love FAQ sections.  You can learn a lot by reading them- not only about the products being sold, but the people purchasing them.  You know the saying, there are no such things as stupid questions?  I never quite understood that.  I think that there are. 
That being said, I also believe that if finding an answer to your question will make life better, why not ask? 
Here is my question: 

What is the proper way to respond to comments? 
There have been several times when a comment is left in a question form, and I don't know how to respond.  If the question is left, do those who leave the comment come back to check for an answer, or is it more of a rhetorical question with no expectation of being answered?  I haven't really responded to said questions because I just don't know.  I know that there could be many answers, so please help me out.  Considering if you are reading this, yours is the answer I want.  I am most definitely willing to answer questions left, I am just not sure if that is what is wanted...please let me know.
{Is there any other Blogging etiquette I should know about?}

I have wondered the exact same thing, and yes, I am guilty of leaving questions in the comment section too. I've seen on some blogs where the blogger goes in and leaves a comment on their own blog answering the question. I guess the question asker would then have to know to go back and check. Maybe if you just said one time in your blog: I'll respond to your questions in my comments or leave your e-mail address and I'll personally reply. I'm not sure there is any etiquette on that one. Let me know your response (via your comments on your blog or in person).

I used to answer questions back that were asked of me in my comments, but now I just forget or I do it on FaceBook

I agree with Teeples. UNLESS you feel the question is something you could actually just blog about.
