    don't much like to

    Can I say these? Thanks.
    I don't much like to speak about others while they are away.
    I don't much like to repeat myself.
    I don't much like to mention it.
    I don't much like to answer silly questions.
    I don't much like to answer the door, so come on by.

    The last one doesn't make much sense to me. What is your idea here?

    All but the last, which doesn't make sense, work for me.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: don't much like to

    Consider using "behind their backs" instead of "while they are away" in the first one.
