Do you read the comments on a post from the top down, or bottom up?

None of the above, technically. I click on the button that says "^ Oldest" and then read from the top down, in chronological order. The default is newest first, and reading from the bottom up just doesn't feel natural.

Same here. Every time.

Always top down, but I sort them into the order I want to read them depending on my mood.

I've been reading bottom up to stay with order commented, but I never noticed the buttons JimG mentioned. Thanks @JimG

You're welcome.

Perhaps there should be a way of reversing the order. @Admin ?

Do you see the buttons that say "newest," "oldest, " etc?

I do now. Thanks.

@El-loco you're welcome.

I love "instant" fixes smile009.gif

I have to read everything in chronological order. Comments here, comments to an NYT article, Yelp and Amazon reviews, etc. Always.

Read top down - sometimes back up to review.

Newest first.

I at times wonder if anyone really reads all the comments, and member bios as well?

I do. Both. Unless a comment is more than 4-5 paragraphs and not very interesting. Otherwise if I click on a thread I read everything that follows.

That sometimes leads me to bios.

I like to reply before being corrupted by other's comments

I start at the top and work my way down, just like Trump!

@FortyTwo I think he meant to say ooze instead of work. smile002.gif

Top to bottom. I like when tops get on my bottom.

I should start bottom up

Agnostic.com seems to randomize them, so by reading them from the top down your still reading them in a random order

I sort by "most liked" and work my way down.

Works great; fun, insightful stuff is at the top, and the trolls are at the bottom.

I usually scan for comments from certain members first.

I start top down, but later on might try bottom up for something different.

Top down. I know it is backwards, but that is the nature of my life. If l know my reply is different than anyone else's l may not read any depending on the subject. If it is a serious subject l scroll to see if someone else says it better than l could or just to make sure l am not duplicating someone else. Damn, I've really managed to make this complicated.
