in reply to On Thankfulness

Thank you nodes that provice no additional information are a waste. You can do the same by privately messaging people. But a thank you node is great whten it is a summary of the discussion. As such, it is beneficial to everyone.

Sometimes, it is interesting to know what led to a mistake. It helps other people to avoid it.

    Thank you nodes that provice no additional information are a waste.

    Waste of what, exactly? Database resources? I think only the gods are in a position to comment on that. Waste of the OP's time? Obviously they didn't think so. I don't really see what the harm is.

      Waste of what, exactly?
      Waste of time for the reader that must find his way thru more chaff.

        Waste of time for the reader that must find his way thru more chaff.

        Only if you are already wasting your time by reading through every note listed in Newest Nodes. If you are reading the thread in it's entirety, then there is no noticable amount of time wasted.

        That could be avoided by changing the node title to “Thanks (was: some kind of request)”.

        But I agree with tye here, still.

        Makeshifts last the longest.

[shmem]: LanX: now I have to find a succinct transformation FOOL => MONK
[LanX]: yeah but Marto already proposed a new "Lex Sun-D" ...
[karlgoethebier]: the word really exists: http://www. urbandictionary. com/define.php? term=fool
[shmem]: ...possibly involving RTFM
[karlgoethebier]: big surprise!
[Eily]: LanX I try to avoid answering, but I did feel that this one post was going into much detail to prove a false claim (that SHA-1 is secure, I was just wrong about how insecure it is)
[LanX]: ironically...
[LanX]: yeah whatever ... I'm in the favorable condition to already autohiding him ... how can I judge the poor FOOLs who still see his contributions xD
[Eily]: he's been pretty saavy about threads that were implictly about him in the past. I think he might have deliberatly avoiding mentioning it for some reason (he got tired?)
[Eily]: he did mention one of his propositions: basically make it possible to ignore downvotes, by separating them more from the upvotes
