two more posts and this one will need cliff notes

I'll scan it for headings, one or two line paragraphs on the way to read the first couple of comments. If they are "thumbs up" or tend to spark debate, I'll go back up and do a more detailed read.

If comments are of the "WTF?" or "" model it's on to the next thread.

RGR, I'm way to lazy to read.

I read two paragraphs or 15 lines, whichever comes first. If I'm not intensely interested after that, I scroll.

It depends on what is said in the first 2 or 3 paragraphs on the first post. If it is interesting, I will read every word. If it doesn't hold my interest, then I skip down.
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 5:22:18 AM EST
I nearly always skip over the long posts.

Tagged to read the original post later.

I will usually read the whol article if it is interesting, otherwise I scroll down to see the resulting shitstorm.
