What's so hard about saying thank you?

Have you ever noticed that people put posts up here for help and get their answer and never reply saying thank you? Honestly, what is so hard about saying thank you these days?

Perhaps it's a generation thing ...

For many people, it's probably just because they're rude, I've always personally said 'thank you' to everyone. Although for others, I don't think many actually come back and view the threads after posting their question, and they probably just run out of patience after about three minutes of waiting for an answer and go somewhere else. Or just forgot about their topics.

I don't think people are necessarily rude. Rather some just don't think about the value of a 'Thank you'. I personally say my Thank Yous not out of obligation but because I'm thankful for the responses and help. It goes a long way.

I agree w/Cheat Master. Some people post the same question on a number of forums looking for help and sometime only respond to one forum (if at all). People get the feeling that they are anonymous on the net and manners don't matter. I would disagree.

Thank you for this thread

The thing that annoys me about people is not that they can't say thankyou. It's just that most people just don't think about it. If they ask for support they could atleast reply in saying it worked or that solution you gave fixed my problem.

Your left wondering if this actually helped the person and could benfit other people who have the same issues. People of this nature I never help again. Thankyou or not I don't really require nor do I expect it so it doesn't bother me too much apart from what I explained above.

The reason I don't ALWAYS do it is because I've gotten infractions at many forums for "spaming".

I post: thank you and appreciate the help

A day later find out I got an infraction for a spam post LOL. This is not here, or at least I can't recall it happening here so far at vB.org. But it has come up on other admin forums.

So I decided to not say anything, unless I see lots of others post a thank you.

Better yet, vB should implement the thank you hack.

Take a look at the current generation of kids outside (13 14 etc).

Theirs the answer. (At least in UK, our streets are like a battle field LOL)

People simply don't bring up their kids how they used to, they don't teach them what's bad and good properly (I used to get a hit if I was naughty.. I soon learned LOL), nor do they bring their kids up with manners.

And it's also that a lot of people simply forget they ever posted. Or otherwise are just plain ignorant.

And ones who do post thanks. Good on them!

As for me.. Do I post thanks? Yes Always if it helped me.
