I usually read the whole post, and when possible, I read all the comments before commenting. I hate to repeat myself.

I'm sure I can't read other people's minds to know.  But occassionally someone comments that I know has just copied and pasted a comment from another blog, they have my name wrong, they have my town wrong, it's totally unrelated... or some other tell tale sign.

Why would I want to leave my comment/signature on something I didn't read fully? 

If the post is too long...I just skip it all together (sorry...)

I read the full article because I try to comment on something specific in the article or add something extra.  I also, like Michael Thacker try to read the comments, unless there are too many.  I learn a lot from comments too.

I can't answer for everyone else, but if I am going to comment on a post, I will read the entire thing. I will often read all the comments as well, unless there are like over 50. Then I will skim them.

I think it is about 50% and say that based on the comments that make a statement that is totally off target. I read many of the comments though not all.

A post on a topic, I read the entire post..   A market report, I scan the details of the report...  a listing, it depends upon the listing and how interesting I find it.

I read the whole post, and sometimes if it is too long, I don't continue to read it and don't comment, unless the subject is compelling...However, based on the comments I get it is clear that some don't get past the first sentence.  LOL A
