Just out of interest

How many of you actually read the whole thread, or at least a chunk of it before replying to a post?

Just something i have noticed that quite a few don't bother.

    It depends really, in a normal thread I would usually read the whole thread; or the best part of it at least. But in something like a birthday one there's not much point really

    I usually read the whole thread through, especially if it is one that im gonna comment on, as i dont like repeating someone else, or getting hold of the wrong end of the stick.
    Although as Solid said, if its just a birthday thread, then its pretty pointless reading "happy birthday :birthday:" over and over again...

    i do.

    it gets on my tits when people just repeat the same thing that's already been said in a thread and then act like it's their idea.

    pssshhh.

    Hmm, virtually always I will read the whole thing, though sometimes I will skim read if its a huge block of text without any breaks.

    I usually read all the replies of the posters I would deem 'normal' and skim past the nutcases, but only in this forum. In politics, relationships etc I read it all.

    Yeah, i read everyone's replies and then reply. That's probably why i don't post so much, if i come to a post with something to say and someone has already said it, i won't bother.

    I usually read most of the thread. Don't post that often after reading them though.

    Like some other people said, I'll read it if it's not all blocked together and there's loads of it.

    I almost never reply anywhere without reading all posts. Sometimes actually a thread with many pages (like 4) can scare me off so I don't read it at all.
    You should see another boards I visit, it's not rare to see a message with 100 replies. Could you read all of them?

    If it's a relatively short thread I read all posts but if it's really long I try to pick out the key posts and skim over ones that seem similar.

    i always read every post on a thread i'm interested in. i don't always post tho.

    if i'm going to post, i still read it all unless i have a very important point i need to get across, then i go back and read it.
