The Possibility of Saying "Thank You"

I have just read that I need to have posted at least 10 times before I can access the "thank you" option. I have 7 messages already posted, so this one makes 8. Only 2 more to go!

Do you wish to "punish" me, when all I want to do is express my appreciation for certain members' messages! Are you really so mean?

Very disappointed to see that you currently have 11 posts but have thanked no-one so far.

What's going on? We are owed an explanation!

Re: The Possibility of Saying "Thank You"

Would it be bad if we all Groan at her for not thanking someone after so much effort was put into getting to ten posts

Jekyll, you are absolutely right. I did, in fact, try to thank someone for a post (dealing with the spaying and neutering of dogs, a subject on which I have very strong views), but the message had been posted before I was promoted to the exalted position of being able to say "thank you" automatically, and it just didn't work! However, rest assured, that my "thank you" button will be put to good use whenever I appreciate a member's comments. As a matter of courtesy, I will not "groan" unless somebody says something negative on a subject about which I have strong views, such as the necessity of spaying and neutering dogs!

Re: The Possibility of Saying "Thank You"

don't forget that now you have the mandatory level of posts, you can't thank posts older than 14 days

I don't think it's appropriate to groan just because you differ in opinion with the poster - keep it for those posts that
  • have nothing to do with the thread
  • are posted by drunk people (unless they are very funny)
  • are obvious troll-speak
  • look, smell, or taste like spam

Re: The Possibility of Saying "Thank You"

I do. I think groans are ideal for sychophantic behaviour, creeping, sleazing, being pedantic, misleading, being pretentious or contentious, being lewd or a pseud, being overly patronising or antagonising.

Its not like they matter for Gods sake. They are the ASBOs of the forum world and should be worn with pride. Am I bovvered ?
