Do you read all the posts?

When responding to a thread? I do particularly when responding to someone looking for a recipe, just to ensure that I am not repeating or threepeating what someone may have alrerady suggested. How bout you?

I try to, but don't always succeed. I really don't like sitting at the computer for hours. And I don't log in every day. I, too, don't like to suggest what others already have. So I try to read all first, but don't always succeed before putting my two cents' worth in.

Another reason I try to read the posts? Memory. I'm not so much worried about saying something someone else already said as repeating myself, especially when a post comes up that hasn't in quite awhile. Gee, someone wants to know about cooking duck. If I don't look, it may turn out that I answered the post a month or two ago, and just don't remember!

I honestly cannot keep up. I read all of my subscribed updates first, then I scan the new topics. I wish I could though.

It's so obvious when someone doesn't read all the responses first. Unless it's one of those ongoing game things that go on and on, I really try to read all the responses. Actually, I think it's almost rude for people to not pay any attention to what was said before them, thinking their own response is all important. Jes' sayin....

I like looking at pictures, better. I hate reading. Therefore, when I reply I sometimes take things way out of context.

I do. I'm kinda slow on the uptake, though. I respond, then often find someone else has beat me to it!

I try to, sometimes my reading comprehension is not as good as it should be and I totally miss the mark.
