    Just wondering.
    How many of you actually read all the posts to a topic before you post?
    I just gets annoying when someone makes the same joke or asks a question that has already been answered.

    I think part of the fun here is to read what others have written.
    Granted, some topics have pages of posts and I would not expect anyone to actually read everything. But, IMHO, anything under 5 pages should be read.

    (DAMN, I hate it when I misspell the title.)

    well, i seldom read before i pose.
    but when posting, i do read to see what it is i am posting about and the general climate of the topic i might pose- i mean post to.

    Ha, Ha, Ha, rub it in. I was going to ask how to edit titles once they are set. I tried to edit but it only lets me correct the message.

    Hey, maybe more people will check out this thread because of the confusion. :wink:

    You could ask a mod to edit it for you. Though funnily enough I read over the typo, I read 'reading before posting' even though the 't' wasn't there.

    I will read all of the posts in a thread - I skim some of them but I do try to get a good idea of what's gone on in thread. It's only polite - like IRL, I prefer not to butt straight into a conversation other people are having without getting the jist of what's actually being said.

    I usually read all the posts first before posting. I only won't if I'm late to the thread and it seems like an easygoing topic without much debating.

    I usually read before posting...but in this case I edited the title before reading any posts.

    I will usually read the first 2-3 pages and the last two pages just to get the jist of things.


    Dahlink, so glad to see you are back and as witty and handsome as ever. :flirt:

    Oh god no, i really couldn't be bothered reading pages and pages or whatever has already happened. But generally whatever i post isn't debatable and i only my little opinion. And if someone wants to whinge that its already been said :rolleyes: well so has everything else on the board, about 3 times over

    No. Not 100 percent of the time. I hate long winded posts and skip them.

    I'm usually speed reading the OP and then scanning over everyone elses posts so I don't fall into that trap.

    I read the initial couple, then some random others to get a fair idea. If it's something where all the posts matter then I'll read them.

    Rarely read what anyone else has to say before posting.
