Totally get what you are saying but when there ae 200+ comments I don’t feel like reading the same thing over and over again. Most the time I’ll read the last page and see where the conversation is.

Yeahhhhh… I understand that when a thread jumps to 5 pages you might not want to read all the comments, but I do wish people would at the very least read any follow up posts the OP has made.

Most of the time if it’s over 4 pages everything has been said so why bother even commenting if you aren’t going to read the previous ones.

I think part of it is the structure of this forum in general is really bad and old fashioned, it makes it very difficult to find a particular poster’s reply, so if you want to read what the OP came back to said you have to go through every page. I’ve been on other forums that directly link you to most recent responses, particular responses from the OP, etc. Even the fact that there isn’t an easy way to get to the most recent responses, you have to start with the OP and click to the last page every time. Also, not having a quote feature makes it hard to follow a conversation unless you copy and paste previous responses.

Yeah, it annoys me sometimes, but I’m sure I’ve done it before too. And sometimes I don’t think it’s a bad thing if everyone says the same thing to the OP, it shows that many people feel the same way, rather than it being a minority opinion.

@HisIrishPrincess:  exactly.  Nobody is forcing you to read the whole thread, but if you want to comment, you should.  

Posters look rather foolish giving their advice on page 5, when it’s been stated already 50 times, and OP resolved her conflict on page 4.

I didn’t realize that reading each and every comment was a condition of posting.

@HisIrishPrincess:  exactly.  with 3-4 pages of comments, I’m sure my input wouldn’t be so enlightening lol

Most of the time I just end up reading threads instead of commenting, because my opinion is usually stated (more colloquially than I could’ve written it) and so I’m not really offering anything but a repeat opinion. 😛

Sometimes I try to look and see if the OP has responded or given more information. I am guilty of this and the threads can get frustrating if there have been many replies. Sometimes I move on and sometimes I comment. I figure if I’m repeating someone else’s response, the OP will skip over mine and continue on with their life. 😛
