    Not me, either. I read the first few hundred to get the flavor of the thread before joining in in the mid-4000's. Since post 9000, I've been reading every post.

    Word association, this/that, and the how's your commute thread are the only threads in BF where I participate without reading every post.

    Well, I joined after the sig test thread got shut down. For that thread, I read 2000-odd posts before I was caught up and felt like I could contribute. And yes, over the life of the 13000-odd post thread, I read every last post.

    I know what you mean about some of those big threads! They're quite a pain sometimes, so I tend to stay away.

    No way... and if I ever even think of reading the whole thread, then i would think I either have way too much time on my hand or am in need of a new hobbie.
