Let's face it, people. At that point, the discussion is over. No one's even reading your reply at that point.

Lots of loud mouths, but no one's listening...

Take the "Where are you right now?" post, for example. If you've read all of the replies on that, you're a serious loser.

I certainly don'tbother. I assume that the question has been thoroughly answered, and the extra posts are off-topic, abuse, idle chit-chat, or all 3.

Plus, even though I have a fast cable modem. those really long threads take a long time to load, so I have to be really curious to check one out.

I agree. I don't bother. Unless, of course, I've been following the thread for some time.

Of course. Sometimes there is an interesting discussion and sometimes, although rarely, there are pretty funny responses -- like the Viking thread.

No, usually they've left the original question and it's just bickering at that point.

Sometimes it is bickering and sometimes it is funny and sometimes it is boring and sometimes it is interesting.Like this question.

No, I figure most replies are by the same people using different names.

If a post receives more than 25 hits it generally seems to denigrate into a a free-for-all rather than have anything to do with the original topic. I never open or read anything with more than 25 replies, since it always seems to consist of two people with multiple aliases who are bickering back and forth.
