I do read all posts before posting myself even if the thread is ten pages long. However, sometimes I tend to speed read and miss things. When I start a thread I always try to follow through with it and respond to the other replies.
I, too, am bothered by poor grammar. I can't help it, but I'm more drawn to the posts written by people who I know will post something I can understand. Yes, Amy, such as Bill. He probably thinks I stalk him! The mistakes that get to me the most are the misuse of "their", "there" and "they're" and when "loose" is used for "lose".
