Handling 10+ Page Forum Threads.

Long Forum Threads, oh my!

We’ve all seen those 10, 20, 30 + pages forum threads in our favorite forums.  What do you USUALLY do when presented with a 10+ page forum thread (yes, there’s always exceptions).

    1. Read the whole thing end to end?
    2. Read the first 1-2 pages and skip the rest?
    3. Skim, Just look for users you know comments?
    4. Skim, Look for people with lots of previous comments?
    5. Other?

    Another question:
    If you could only read 1 forum, which would you read?
    (my poll for that one got skewed so I’m asking you again here).
