Quick Poll

I don't know why I wanted to post this poll, it just suddenly struck me as an interesting one, and so here we are:

Poll #1126332 Reading LJ

How do you read your friends list (at least usually)?

From the top down.
28(70.0%)
I find the last one I read, then read up.
9(22.5%)
One of the previous two really fairly equally, depending on my mood/whim/awakeness/whatever.
1(2.5%)
Alphabetically according to the most likely publisher for the user's life memoirs.
0(0.0%)
Other (explained in comments).
2(5.0%)

Obligatory:

Clicky thing!
9(23.1%)
I know, right?
13(33.3%)

Some jokes...

Just never get old.
23(65.7%)
Are totally flogging a dead horse.
10(28.6%)
Weren't funny in the first place, because I had my sense of humor surgically removed.
2(5.7%)

And yes, as per usual, I vote on my own poll, so you may see my own habits/views.

1) When I've been away a while, I read from the bottom up, but at several passes per day to catch up on comments. While I'm sitting and reading and not much time is passing between refreshes, I'll read from bottom or top, wherever the screen happens to be when I start. But I still mostly read new things that have appeared oldest-to-newest.

2) More importantly: This is the first time I've clicked a box in an LJ poll that added nothing to the actual discourse of the poll but was instead a variant on the clicky meme in.... yeah, probably a couple of years. You win!

Top down is the only civilized way.

Psssh, no way! Then you're, like, trying to revise history and take events in the opposite sequence that they occurred!

Revisionist!!!

I just can't see the point of scrolling to find the "last read" post, then scrolling upwards to the next post, then back up to the top of the previous post, then down to the bottom of it, then back up... sounds wasteful. And then doing it all over again, once for each filter... ugh.

Nothing, really, except occasionally someone refers to seeing something before reading others "below it" or "above it" and... I dunno... it just struck me to wonder about it.
