What threads are you most likely to post at?

I think we might have had a poll similar to this one a while back. I'm just wondering if you are more likely to post/read a thread that has a ton of posts or few.

I usually don't pay as much attention to threads with a lot of posts, I usually look at the new ones with few posts. Except for one's like "This or That" "What is in your cup" and ones like that that I return to day after day.

I usually ignore longer threads. But it depends a bit on how fast it fills. A thread that's around for years, slowly gaining posts is different from a thread that was created yesterday and today already has over 100 posts... The first I'll visit, the second I'll most likely ignore.

I choose threads based on
a) topic
b) subforum
c) poster (rarely applied but I do avoid/ignore a few posters)

The number of replies is absolutely irrelevant.

You've left off a choice:

"Any thread with the word chicken in it"

Seriously, size/length of thread doesn't matter, it's what interests me at the moment.

That's exactly what I do, I think on new threads with a ton of reply's my opinion won't matter much because in an hour or two my post will be burried in newer reply's, and most people probably just look at the last few pages. But old popular threads that are return threads that I post everyday.

I read almost anything that interests me. It doesn't matter about the length. For really long threads I'll read the first few posts to see if I like what it's about and then read the last couple of pages to see what it has devolved into.

Subject is what matters to me. If it is interesting, I do not mind reading pages and pages of posts.

I found that one year ago there were more interesting and meaningful discussion though. Or I just became less keen.

I never pay attention to the length of a thread.

Yes, that's my reasoning as well. I simply feel you can't have a meaningful discussion in a thread that grows so fast. They also tend to go off-topic fast and thus have nothing (or only marginally) to do with the original post... Besides that, my time is limited and reading such a thread can take most of my MR day...
