It depends.

Sometimes I read the entire thread and then reply. Sometimes I reply as I go.

More so the former, though.

I do what appaerently is known as "Jon_dying" the thread, where I just go though the entire thread and make my points. Sometimes getting 5 posts in a row.

as for me, if its only a few pages, i will read all then reply.

IF it's like 15 pages and shit, I will read the first post, then read the last page of posts (to see how the thread got de-railed, and what the disucssion is about now, and then reply to that. :lol: )

I read all and then reply no matter the length. If the thread derails I tend to skim until I can find the point of the thread again though.

This is basically my method, unless I'm very interested by the subject matter.

a. I try to not repeat a point that has already been raised, regardless of thread length.

If it's not too long I'll read it all.If its giant,I usually try to at least skim.

Depends on how long the thread is and what the topic is. Usually I try to read the whole thing before posting, but if it's really long I'll read the first page, skim a few and then read the most recent page before posting. That way I don't come completely out of left field.

Only 5?

That's hardly worth calling it jon_dyeing.




And in this thread I read up to that post and the one beyond it, replied, then read the rest.

I usually try to read the whole thread first though. But it depends on the thread.

SOMETIMES...

a. Read the first post in the thread, and read all the following responses, and then post a response.

c. utilize another method (describe)

Open a new tab, quoting the post I want to respond to.. especially in a large thread.. get my throughts down, and check the remaining pages to see if someone made the same point.

Option L: read the "preview" of the thread without actually clicking on it, then return to the warmth and safety of my Ask thread.

I usually just hum the theme to 'Charles in Charge' when I click, then type whatever pops into my head regardless of how it relates to any discussion taking place at that particular moment.

If it's a short thread, I'll read all the posts. If it's a few pages long, I'll just read the first few and then the last few. Then if I can be bothered, I'll post something.

This sounds vaguely...familiar.

I'm suprised you go to that much effort to catch up.

If there aren´t too many pages, I read the whole thing.

If there´re many pages, I read the first and the last one (to see if they´re still talking about the original topic) and then I post.

Just for the record, I didn´t read a goddamn thing of this thread.
