showing politeness is not bad, but there are a lot of words that you can use to show politeness. like take care, have fun, enjoy mylot and all words that can show politeness. but if thats your style then i dont think there is something wrong with it. it is nice to see or read a comment or response that is polite. it makes a day and gives smile.

I don't see a problem with it. I'm always polite and say thank you for responding or to have a great day or week. Never question if its correct to be polite or not. It always polite to be nice to others especially on Mylot.

Well, sometimes you can tell those people they are being rude, but most of the time they do not care. Some will even say "that's just the way I am." I try not to associate with people who do not think it is important to be polite. I just do not have the patience to deal with them.

Hi there, I agree that we should be polite in our discussions and responses but it does not only in salutation but also tone of conversation and choice of words. So far, I have not seen anyone that is bad

Hi Yugasini, it depends. At times the discussion is sad. Then you cant possible start with hi. "Hi xyz, I know how u feel". Hi is a form of greeting - I associate it with happy connotations. Therefore, starting such a discussion with a Hi would be like saying right now I am smiling, which is not what I feel after reading the discussion content! I reply with my feelings! Under such circumstances, I think it is more polite not to use the word Hi. But these are essentialy my feelings. I might have used Hi accidentally (in fact I remember being confused whether to use it or not or chances of being misunderstood till I decided otherwise on my own). I apologize through this discussion to such mylotters. Thank you for giving this opportunity to me Yugasini.

Well I don't think anybody would object to your being polite Yugasini because respect is something that everybody seeks.But starting a conversation with a "Hi" doesn't really demonstrate politeness although it does express friendliness.So you have a got a good habit and you should stick to it.As far as politeness is concerned,the content of your message would give a better picture of how polite you are to the reader.If you were to ask me,I'd give you a "Thumbs Up"!!

Hi there. I think politeness is lovely to have in My Lot discussions. I think "hi my friends" sounds friendly. Anyone can respond to this discussion that you have started: your friends and other members of My Lot. You might make more friends on My Lot. I like to get polite responses to the discussions that I start.

dear yugasini, i feel it is just right to greet friends but it is not compulsory. but showing politeness makes one feel at peace with the world hence - happiness. but i guess it depends in the discussion that you post too. when i want to give intensity to anger, sometimes i do not place any salutation. ann

hi jugasini yes You are most correct. Its always nice to be polite and courteous to all our mylot friends and I usually say something a lot like what you have used but I may word it a bit differently. I usually use the person's user name in responding just like I would say Sally or JOe to a friend in a friendly conversation.

hi hatley, thanks for the response,most of the responses or comments will come from me with hi ,here i have to respect elders,but i am not doing that ,that is wrong but i am getting less responses from the older people,once i start with more respect to any body i have to remember and stick on to that,so it is difficulty to give more respect to older people,have a nice day

Hello Yugasini. You seem polite in your discussions, yes. For me, I love to show courtesy and respect for all my friends here. I try hard to reply decently and with some depth, and I always try to check for discussions and comment on those friends begin. When friends comment on one of my discussions, I always respond. I do believe in respect and courtesy. Human beings are behind each computer screen here. They have feelings and thoughts and opinions, so yes, courtesy and respect should be given when dealing with our friends and others, on-line or off. Karen

Politeness is good. But sometimes, we will not have much time at our disposal. More over it is not a letter to address somebody and then start discussion. So I address if time permits otherwise straight I will go to the topic.
