We usually ask from some basic information. While some of us do, often we don't manipulate looking for that data unless it is in the galleries where we can click on the EXIF link or we are actually thinking about downloading the image to provide some visual feedback. I happen to have nifty EXIF Viewer for Mac that I just drag a download image into and it read the data...but I have to do the download steps first.
Also,sometimes I have found that items are post without the metadata and then the time taken to attempt retrieve it was for naught. Many of us post simply camera, lens, f/stop, shutter speed, ISO, WB, exposure mode and sometimes a little about what post processing we did. We learn a lot from seeing what others do. That is the great experience we have at Nikonians. However, it is all about what people are comfortable doing.
