    I think I've just been noticing this more lately or something but what's with people posting in a thread without even reading one post in that thread? I can understand if the thread is 4 or 5 pages long and you missed getting in earlier and you have one thing you want to add...sure ok. At least read the original post though.

    But if it's one page and there's only a few posts can't you read the freaking thread before you post in it?!

    It seems as though sometimes people reply to a thread without even reading the original post..just based on the title or something! Or maybe several people will mention a website or discuss it and then someone comes in and says "Hey! You should check out THIS website!" and then posts the very website that was being discussed. Or maybe it's a request for some info or something and the original poster says very specifically what info he's NOT looking for and then sure enough someone comes along and posts that very info that he's not looking for.

    Let's get with the show, folks.

    This has been covered alot. You need to refer to the Essex Mega Thread.

    This is why I don't think there should be a 'post reply' button on the top of the page. This would enable all that 'dead' white space to be removed, and would encourage people to at least scroll down to the bottom of the page in shame of not reading the thread before replying.

    Yeah, I agree, I think that more people shouldn't read anything but the topic title.

    You know what would be a funny joke?

    If someone posted in this thread in a way that implies that they didn't read it.

    I read the whole thing, even as it circled the bowl. Brad, if I've done that I'm sorry. I've been listening to a lot of Fantomas lately and I think it may have broken my brain.
