What is your methodology? Several ways seen on GF include: Replying without reading the OP or any others posts Reading the OP then replying Reading the OP, the whole thread, then replying Banging your head against the keyboard So what do you do? Personally, I tend to read the OP and then respond. After that, I'll catch up on the rest of the thread and by then, someone has usually responded to me and I'll have been educated on what has happened in the thread so far. How about you?
