Good point. I have no idea what the true percentage is, but I'm always staggered every time I read: "I couldn't be bothered to read the thread, so sorry if it's been mentioned already...." or "I never read all the posts". I just don't get that (unless it's a 5 year old thread that runs to 30 pages long).

I read far more than I write here and if I post on a thread then I've read everyone else's posts too.....from the profound to the ridiculous. It seems strange to me. Who enters into a physical conversation without knowing what is being said and just jumps on a soap box?
