I have used the NDB as a way to check out sites. If I like the site and they have a good first deposit bonus, as well as points that are not impossible to clear, I deposit. Which of course what the NDB is really for. Do you?

I only did deposit at Action Poker where i also had a NDB, had 2 NDB at the Ipoker network but i kinda dont like that network so no money deposit there. Nowadays i dont use the NDB offers anymore only use the forum.
I try to avoid using money out of my own pocket if I can. With as many no deposit bonus' out there, I figure that I can go at least 5yrs before I have to use my own money. By then, I shouldn't need npb anymore.

I usually deposit and move my entire bankroll to a site if i like it and as long as it has good cashout speed without any hinderance. For example, i played on BBP, lost my NDB but i liked it there so i ended up moving my roll from bwin to BBP. Now i just play on BBP ^^

The NDB is NOT for you to deposit, that's why it's called a NO deposit bonus. They might want you to, but you do not have to. I don't know where people get off saying/preaching that. It is 100% up to each individual.
I have deposited on a few of the sites I got a NDB through here, but only because I had a good feeling about the site, not because I felt any need to.
You don't owe anyone anything when you receive a NDB, sure, it's nice, but it's the idea of the site - it's not a charity. They keep the numbers up, and a lot will indeed deposit, it all works out for everyone in the end. Don't ever feel like you're returning any favour by depositing, that is ridic.
