I try to simply because if I have something to offer I don't want it to be something already posted.

Another reason is that embedded in a thread can be many great variations of a recipe and missing those can be a real loss sometimes.

Lots of great contributions on this forum and I sure love reading as many as possible !

No. There are many topics that simply don't interest me. I scan the new posts to see if anything catches my eye. I skip all of the games, movies, what did you read, watch, listen to. I skip most of the off-topic stuff, except Daily Trivia.

That said, when I do read a thread, I read the entire thread before posting. I am not inclined to add to the redundancy.

I do the same SS. I didn't mean to imply before that I read each and every thread here. I do however read all of a thread if I'm going to make a contribution.

I do that too, Kayelle. If I respond, I read everything in it.

Sometimes, even though I have been keeping up with a thread, I use the search thread, advanced to find out if I have posted to the thread. It's bad enough that I bore my RL friends with the same stories over and over, I don't need to do it on line too.

I read or at least skim all the posts for any tread I'm participating in. If I'm reading thread I don't respond to, such as the cat or chicken threads, I'll check in from time to time to get caught up but w may only read a few posts.
