Possible Feature?

I have been thinking about this for a while. If you are responding to a thread for the first time, you have to read the entire thread before you can post. I see alot of threads where people read the first post and thats it. They do not take the time to read other responses, or read additions that the original poster has added. Reading the same thing over and over again gets old after a while.

How would you implement this feature?
How could you be sure someone actually read the whole thing?

And what happens when the thread is 6 pages long? Not everyone is going to want to read every single post before they are allowed to reply.
I know myself I've been guilty of skimming thru pages of posts before I reply.
Some people may have advice or ideas that they would like to offer, and they may be limited on the amount of time they can dedicate to this online forum.

In most cases the original poster will update their original post on the first page of the thread. Most of the time its when a thread gets into an argument, and the argument gets settled, and here comes someone else stirring up the argument again because they only read the first post. I say they should have to atleast skim down through the first page atleast.
