ANSWERS: 53
  • It sometimes annoys me... like I answered the damn question, what else do you want from me? It makes me feel obligated to comment back... and I hate that.
  • You know Xosted one that I do it all the time, but "thanks" isn't personal enough. Acknowledging the persons name with a "Thank you" tells the person that you really read their comment and/or answer to a question and really appreciated it. I for one think its ok to say.
  • Tell me Xosted one who does not like getting appreciated !!!
  • I prefer a comment (negative or positive is fine)
  • Only if it gave them a tingle in that special place.
  • Sometimes I get the feeling like they didn't even read my answer - just a 'thanks' - I would rather just have a rating with no comment. However, if someone says "Thanks MrBLT, Great answer!" - that's different and I appreciate that and will return a comment back. I really like it when someone opines on my answer, good or bad, because I like to argue :)
  • I sometimes wish that people that asked a question would write additional comments, when I've answered their question, rather than just, 'Thanks for your answer.', for example. :-)
  • I love it! From the response I've read, most people seem to like it as well. It makes me feel good that people appreciate my response. It also seems that some would like a little more than just a "thank-you".
  • I'm sure I could live without it, but I think it's a nice gesture and I'm always happy to read comments.
  • i believe if you provide a decent answer, the asker should at the very least acknowledge it. or no acknowledgement if the answer is extremely lame.
  • I, personally, can live without "thanks", but I realize others like the acknowledgement, so out of courtesy, I try to give everyone 'something'.
  • Thanks is passe Sara. Its 'the' shit to swear at people who answer your questions now: 'F*ck you very much. Your answer was so insightful that it pissed me off. +1 thats all you get -- have a shitty day.' Dont thank me for this.
  • Whatever they wanna do is fine.
  • Its nice of them, but I get disappointed when its nothing in relation to what I've put. I would have wanted some feedback!
  • Saying thanks to people comments is curteous. I always try and thank the people who've commented on my questions. And I will add a bit more if I feel the need to. A lot of people take time with their answers and an acknowlegement for it is the proper thing to do.
  • I like to be acknowledged, but I would like a little more than just 'Thanks'... But that's not up to me, is it? Now then, what you gonna say to that? LOL!!
  • I do not mind if people do not but it is nice to know that people actually read your answer even if it is or was rubbish. I try to let people know I have bothered.
  • It is nice for them to at least take the time to say hi or thanks if I answered a question. Of course a point or two for a decent answer helps too.
  • It was interesting to hear all of the opinions here. Often I write just thanks and a +6. I do this because if I get into comments with people I end up spending all the time typing which is fun but tires me out too. I guarantee you, If I write thanks and a + or +6 I have read it. It is just, that I enjoy the chatting so much that I get physically tired and it takes hours because I get wrapped up in the comment threads. Anyone been here long enough to know mw knows I put in the effort.
  • It is better than no comment at all.
  • I won't be pissed off without a comment..but I really like them :) It just seems so much easier to read all the answers and slap on some points than to comment thank you on each one.
  • I say thanks to let them know I read their reply. If it was a good answer weither it agreed or disagreed I comment on it.
  • It doesn't matter to me either way because you never know where my answer may come up. I mean you can't expect it when there is like 50 answers. But if they do its very nice and I usually always remember that person.
  • i guess it doesnt really matter to me.
  • It's nice to say thanks (I do it), but the comments light can be overwhelming. I enjoy interaction with my fellow ABers, but prefer that it be meaningful. I like Hangin Judges approach as a practical one.
  • I like it, but I'd like it even more if it was a small comment on my answer rather than just a generic response. I try to do that to people that answer my questions.
  • I don't really care. I write "Thank you" and other variations of that on a lot of the answers that I receive. I don't see a problem with writing that. It's simply an act of politeness.
  • It's kind of appreciated...but I can't help but say something when people answer my questions...i dont know why....
  • I get excited when I see that I have a comment, so when I go to look and it just says, "Thanks" I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed. When I ask questions, I make a point to add something to whatever I comment on people's answers. If I don't have anything to say, I don't say anything.
  • Odd isn't it? That we can be sensitive to some things at some times and not at all to the same things at other times. Gee, that was clear. If we are human, and I suspect most AB'ers are, we are going to be offensive to someone in some way at some time for some reason A courtesy can be appreciated or unappreciated, either way its a couple of keystrokes, what harm is done? I consider it an acknowledgement more than anything else, if we are friends we'll talk about it
  • I appreciate it. I always comment and/or thank someone who answers my questions. I just think it's the polite thing to do.
  • Well me, I don't always have much time to respond to every response I get, I try but not much time. Therefore I will always at least give points and most of the time say thankyou. What I really hate is when people minus points and don't leave a comment. Come on people, why would you tell someone "hey that sucks" but then not tell them what "that" is. I want to know why you disagree or don't like my question. Good question Sara
  • I'd rather have that than some nasty remarks.
  • Well, not really, but I don't mind being thanked either.
  • Sometimes its okay with me, but not necessary.
  • Yes & a 21 gun salute wouldn't hurt either!!!!!
  • I appreciate it when it happens as a point of contact, but I don't have to have it. I do like to know if I have been able to be helpful to someone. It is an encouragement to continue.
  • Just send cash.
  • If it's just an obligatory "Thank you", then no I'd rather not be thanked. ...because there are only five pages of activity now and I might miss a comment that requires a reply from another user.
  • I appreciate it when I do, but I don't see it as an AnswerBag requirement.
  • Thanks is nice, or an appropriate comment so I know the person asking the question got my answer.
  • No. Especially if it's just an insincere, obligatory "Thanks". Why bother?
  • I think if they take the time to answer my question then out of respect I will Thank them...I love to be Thanked or left a comment but if they don't I'm not offended:)
  • If it's just an obligatory gesture then I'm ambivalent about it. I like a meaningful comment but I realize that can't be given for every answer, especially when my answer is like the 500th one. ;)
  • Yep... It shows me they actually read my answer. (Or, it makes me believe they have...) Either way, I read every answer, and thank everyone who answers my questions... I consider it courteous.
  • I appreciate this, but I also appreciate any other kind of feedback (but rather positive or at least constructive feedback, of course).
  • Yes, I think it is respectful to thanks someone for answering your question.
  • yes i like it, but itsnot a necessaty.:)
  • If they don't forget the points It's fine. LOL
  • It really doesn't matter to me. I don't always thank an answerer. I do give points to all that answer.
  • I do, I like points and a thank you for a good answer. I tend to only answer questions where I actually know what I'm talking about, or just opinion stuff, so I like it when that's recognised.
  • It's nice to be thanked.
  • It's nice, but I don't expect it.
