You always say "Thank You"?

Most of the time when I check out topics posted by the myLotters I notice the topic originator responding "Thank You" to his/her respondents. Thanking people is a good thing but in a way it ends a possible conversation with one respondent. It's like saying, "Thank you for your response. Next respondent, please." You often thank your topics' respondents? Why?

I do thank people for responding because they have taken the time to participate in my discussion and I am most certainly grateful for that! To be honest I have not found it to be a conversation killer at all. Keep in mind though that if the discussion does continue with a particular member I don't keep on thanking them each and every time they re-respond either! Personally I feel obliged to be grateful but I also don't go in for an overkill!

Yes, I agree with you. It's just most of the time, "Thank you for your response." is the only reply I see in most of the discussions I have read. Although the number of better responses to respondents are higher than a "Thank you". I sometimes feel that the idea of discussing isn't always a success.

yes i think it´s a good idea to thank the people that respond to your discussions,but first try to comment a little on what they answered and then thank them so it doesn´t feel like you´re telling them, thanks, next. If people take the time to respond to our discussions well then we should be grateful and thank them but not make them feel the conversation is over.

I almost always say thank you whenever I have the time. It is only showing a sign of respect and acknowledgement and it does not cost a cent. Saying thank you is a sign of good will. Happy myloting and all the best.
