    I was wondering if you guys answer the thread without reading other posts first, or answer after reading the other posts. I answer first, then its interesting to read the other opinions.

    I read first for up to 3-4 pages. If it is a very interesting thread, I will read all the pages.

    I always read the other responses before I reply.

    I start reading all the posts, but if it looks like a ***** and whine session or the thread get hijacked, I get bored...real fast and just respond to the orginal question.

    Depends. Sometimes certain threads turn into a ***** fest, or people wine about crap, or post stupid irrelevant stuff. In which case I skip over that. Sometimes I just wanna put my 2 cents in and not read. Whatever strikes me, I guess.
