Hi
I am a big newsgroup user and have always woundered about saying thx to the people who help me  with advice. Do you thank people for their advice or is it just asumed that you are thankful..



Cheers thx

People assume that when I say thanks / thank you that I actually mean it.
some times I do sometime people just can't pick up on sarcasm.... :)

Even on busy Fidonet echoes, messageboards, newsgroups, mailing lists etc, i have never been told off for saying thankyou,

I normally do say things like

"Hey thanks - that really helped me out"

It will make people smile, and could be the difference between them helping again, or not.

I think that sometimes a TIA can sound a little expectant.

I always prefer to say thankyou afterwards. And I mean it too, great guys.
