Who actually reads the forums they reply to?

So, I have been on crunchyroll for a few years now. Most of the time, I skim the first page of the whatever General, Anime or Manga forum to post my own reply. My forum post ends up on page 23, and all the content in-between is ignored. Most of the replies I respond to are usually on the first page, or on the page that my reply ends up being on.

I was just wondering if there were people who willingly read all the forum pages to see what everyone has to say.

I do unless it goes back 4 years. I skim a lot, skip the big box retorts if it's the same ppl responding. If it's a weighty topic that should've been over in Extended Discussions instead I may read it, then again I may not. Not because the poster is ignorant or anything like that. At my stage in life at lot of these concerns just don't carry the interest they might have 20-30 years ago so I move onward to the next reasonably sized tome. It is interesting though to see the same life issues surface that were perplexing 10, 20, 30 , even 40 years ago.

If it has less than 5 pages, I'll at least skim through it all. A lot of people just post
stuff that isn't really worth reading, unfortunately, so I don't invest too much time.

Any longer, and I'll just look at the most recent 2 or 3 pages. If it's old, I don't respond to anyone on the first page, since they probably don't care about the thread anymore.

Meh. If it's at least 10 pages long I'll skim through all of the posts. Sometimes when I post I read the previous posts, and even a couple pages back.

Barely even read what I'm replying to.

Your right. I don't think people would give a damn about what others says unless they are interested what about other people's opinion. I often ignored people's forum post until recently because i'm bored.

Hinata and Naruto GOD DAMNIT!

Also, my method is usually to read the entire first page and the entire final page of replies when I come upon a new thread. If it's a relatively new thread like this one, that's no problem. I generally don't bother to read any of the other responses in between. Generally, the responses on the final pages are an evolution of the earlier pages.

If I reach the last page and there's only a handful of responses, I'll go back a page to read those responses. Then I'll formulate my own response based on the topic.
