Yes! I've had a couple classes that didn't require discussions but the rest of them have. I'm enrolled in a concurrent program with my local community college and a university. So I am taking classes that will go towards my BSN at the same time that I'm taking my nursing blocks with the community college (starting January). The class I'm taking with my university right now is the first one I've taken with them, and the discussion post requirement for that class is a lot more intense than any other I've ever taken. We have a minimum of seven discussion posts that we have to make each week. And we also have to reply to two people, four times a week. It's very difficult to make a substantial reply to someone when some people do the bare minimum in their posts. Thankfully I only have two weeks left in this class, and I find myself replying to the same people week after week because they give enough information in their posts for me to actually reply to. Yet other times, the discussion question really leaves no room for a "good" reply. If we are all defining the same word in our post, it's not much for discussion.
