I was wondering if any of you feel the same compulsion on forums as I do, which is the urge to read every response to a thread before responding. I feel that if I haven't read every response, whatever I say might not be offering anything new or interesting, and therefore it would be pretty useless for me to respond. If I have no insight to bring to the discussion, why bother? Therefore, unless the topic seems sufficiently engaging, I won't even bother entering threads with more than five pages of responses simply because it's too much effort for me to even go about reading them.
Anyone else share this?
