    Big threads

    When there is a big thread going on with lots of posts, and you're late to the party, do you start from the beginning of the thread so you don't miss anything, or from the back, so you can hopefully see where things went terribly awry more quickly, and kindof guess what sparked what?

    I read the last couple pages, because they generally quote important things. I then go back if something makes me feel like I missed something

    Then usually post, and keep creeping back/watching new posts.

    A picture paints a thousand words, it's true.
    But it's still not enough for how I feel about you.

    Always always start from the beginning so I can try and not make myself loook like an idiot.

    I always start at the beginning, i don't think its right to post if you haven't even read the whole thread, you could miss so much But that is just me.

    I tend to read the first page or 2, then jump to the last page to see quotes, and read my way to the front, till I see what I want to see. I typically don't have the time or patience to read through 20 pages of responses, so I feel like reading from the back will probably give me highlights of the whole thing
