    /wiki/Thread Hoppingwork

    A term for what a person is doing when they read the top post of a thread, then jump to the bottom and makes a reply likely to have been nearly duplicated above or that is on a topic that has actually been left behind by the thread.

    The "cool" thing about threadhopping is that if you spot a compulsive threadhopper, you can insert commentary about them into a thread which they will never read.[1]

    No examples, please; this is an Omnipresent Trope.

    1. If you're thinking of inserting nasty commentary into a thread on ATT's forums, remember that our code of conduct boils down to "have fun and play nice".
