    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.

    I'll read the first and most recent posts before responding.

    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.
