ANSWERS: 39
  • I wouldn't get offended by it, some people just don't think to say thank you for your answer. I can see how it might be a little irritating though!
  • I am never bothered by it. Maybe there is nothing much to respond to. I give points for answers even when I don't have a response to give.

  • i care and it bothers me but it is just the way that people are !
  • Nah - I'm answering just to add my two cents. Someone saying thank you may brighten up my day, but not saying it doesn't throw a wrench in things. I just move on to the next one.
  • I would rather have a comment than points. It seems more personal.
  • It's nice, but it's not a requirement, and offence is not something I feel - just boredom.
  • I don't get offened by it. If someone say "thanks" that is nice and if they don't that is fine too. Sometimes I ask questions and than have to log off. I think too say thanks hours later.... the moment for it has passed.
  • I'm not sure that people are rude. I think sometimes people just don't know what to say, although in a situation where actual advice is sought, it wouldn't hurt to say thanks, just so you know that the person who asked the question has, at least, read your answer. (boy that was quite the run on sentence!) Of course, I'm sure there are also those who are just plain rude!
  • Nah. I do like comments ...but I don't attach any positives/negatives re whether they comment.
  • If someone gave me a rude comment that might bother me. I have gotten rude answers to questions that lead into angry comments....from others. Silence to me is golden.
  • Doesn't really bother me. I'd rather that than something negative.
  • It doesn't bother me although it would be nice to see how the other person felt about it.
  • It doesn't really matter to me. If the comment is rude, they'd do well to keep it to themselves, though.
  • It is nice to receive a comment, but I don't always expect one. Tell you the truth, if I was to comment on all the answers I received from my 400 questions, I don't think I would have much time to answer many questions. I do appreciate replies, that's why I always give people + points for honest and good replies. I usually leave comments for answers I really like or if it was something I was thinking of answering or asking.
  • Sometimes it might bother me but I guess that's what I expect from most people. SO it only affects me on my 'crabby days'. But I don't really mind. I do like comments but I think that as time goes on and I see what the majority of people are like, I don't really think twice if they say nothing. But I do try to acknowledge and comment when people answer my questions. I guess I'm always surprised that they stopped and gave it a thought, I really AM thankful:-)
  • It depends how many answers they get if theve hundreds you cant expect them to comment on every 1 but if thers only 1 or 2 then yes i think its rude..
  • Honestly, I do that sometimes. Sometimes, I get so many answers that I can't reply to all of them and sometimes, I don't know how to reply except saying "thank you."
  • I don't mind as long as they give points or comment, or both. Of course, if they don't do either, I still don't mind...I mean, I rarely give points to questions, so I guess it doesn't matter.
  • I don't mind since it would by hypocritical for me to say it, just as long as they acknowledge your existence, I'm good.
  • I always enjoy getting a reply...
  • It would be nice if they did acknowledge your answer. I was guilty of this when I was new here, but I have changed greatly!
  • A copy and paste thanks would make the longer acknowledgements easier, but sometimes there are answers that dont warrant comments :o)
  • I always give points and at least say thanks in comments.
  • Very rude and not nice! How long would it take to type...thanks....less than 2 seconds !!
  • no, I dont. sometimes i just dont have anything to say to an answer to one of my questions..it can be many reasons..common ones are...its a duplicate answer, it doesnt answer the question or i dont agree with it and dont feel like engaging in a debate..i do, however, always give points to the people who take the time to answer my questions.
  • It depends on the question. If I leave an argumentative answer (i.e. if someone asks a clearly biased opinion question) I expect a comment back. And I always appreciate a comment. But I'm guilty of not commenting back if I can't think of anything to say, so I don't really get bothered by it.
  • Ah I'm new and I'm guilty of that, sometimes I"m soo busy readin al the other answers and comments that I forget to comment... please know if I forget to comment on ANYONE I appologize..I don't mean to intentionally snub people!!! LOL Blame it on noob brain flu ROFLMAO!
  • I'm not offended by no reply, but no points AND no reply, that's ignoring me! :-(
  • No. I actually don't really like "Thank you for your answer" comments anymore.
  • I feel a little miffed, especially if I have made an effort to think of a good answer, share a personal experience or do some research for them, usually most of the time it is newbies that don't acknowledge your response. I think they still see everyone on here as faceless machines, not real people. Not every one is here to spread joy or give a stuff about community spirit, some people are just take, take, take. Yet other use this site as a clinical fact transaction without a personal connection, I can understand that, especially if they were introduced to the site while searching for something on google. So I don't always take it personal.
  • No. Actually, I find it rude when people EXPECT a comment.
  • I don't mind if people don't feel like commenting but when they don't you don't have the sense of interaction and 'socializing' that you get when they do. It also makes me feel less inclined to answer their questions because you are never sure whether they really exist or not! They may as well be a computer churning out questions!
  • 5-30-2017 I don't even know how to act when someone thanks me for a post. When I get the email notifying me that someone has commented, my first reaction is "OMG, now what?"
  • some of these questions have been dug out of the archives like this one you probably won't comment on my answer. Many of these people are no longer here. So that would be a no it doesn't bother me
  • Some people aren't online every day: Be patient I'd say
  • Not at all and I laugh at people who do. If you're the type to await foot and hand for the confirmation and approval of others then you're not going to get far in life.
  • i dont really care as long as theyre not being rude about it
  • sometimes, depends on if i wanted a comment or not
