    So when you visit any forum, including this one, do you:

    1) just see, read and respond to the very last post in a thread

    2) read thread from start to end and THEN respond


    just wondering............:inspect:

    Depends on what it is and what I'm trying to get out of it. I usually read at least the first page and the last couple of pages. If it is a gargantuan resource thread, I might read more or less. Hard to get through those though so I understand why people just come in and post a question that was answered 15 times.

    Depends on the page count. One they get past 3-4 pages I tend to ignore them unless searching for info.

    Also depends on how many pages. 2-3 pages I'll read or at least skim every post. More than that and I can't be bothered unless it's a topic I'm really interested in. I'll read the first page and maybe the latest page or two.

    Depending on the topic, I tend to avoid new threads with lots of pages as usually the question has been answered already and is now simply being beat to death.
