    Depends on how long the thread is.

    Depends on how many pages of responses there are, how strongly I feel about the topic, if I feel like writing out a long, thought-out response or just a short one, etc.

    Also it depends on who replied.

    There needs to be a middle option on your poll! I do if there aren’t already a ton of replies and/or if it is a highly touchy subject.

    @Neetch:  Agreed — if it’s short, yeah definitely, if it’s super long, I pretty much just scroll through looking for any of the OP’s posts for updates.

    I pretty much always read through all responses before replying.

    It depends on the length of the thread. If it’s really long, I don’t typically read everything but I do at least scroll through to see if the OP has responded/clarified/provided any updates. Otherwise, whatever comment I’m making might be totally irrelevant.

    i try to read them all if the responses are not just one big chuck of text.

    Not usually. I’ll read the first few… Sometimes all if the thread is not too long.

    It really depends. I try to, but if it’s a thread purely asking for individual opinions on something or a “show me” thread then probably not.

    Depends on all the drama in the thread.  I tend to read the really dramatic ones  because they’re so entertaining.  If there aren’t a lot of replies I usually read all of them regardless, though.
