    I read the first post, and then the last page. That way I know whats going on.

    It depends on the thread.

    I picked option two. If the thread is short (under three pages) or the responses are interesting, I'll read the whole thing.

    Depends on the thread. If it's very long, I read the first post and a couple of pages, and the last page. Less than 5 pages I usually read. Except if it's a poll, then I normally won't bother to read other people's replies.

    I agree that it depends on the thread. I always read the opening post. If it's not a terribly long thread, but if it's reaching several hundred, especially if it's a thread that's been going for a few years, I don't read the whole thing.

    So I voted Anakin. :p

    I'll read most of the thread, but then skip the parts where two or three
    individuals get into a long-winded, running 'post-riot' that usually ends
    up nasty and personal. No interest there.
