What do you think about "Thank you"-nodes?
Now I want to hear your opinion:
?node_id=3989;HIT=thank%20you;re=N;D -> Are short "thank you" posts within discussions welcome at Perl Monks?
Ha :) me blind again (got distracted and missed that this was already linked), so to repeat and expand on my previous reply
I appreciate genuine thoughtful follow-ups/responses
The kind that say thanks, I went with this approach for that reason
Or here's the code solution I adapted
Or I thought about that, but ...
Basically like a real conversation :)
I'm not a fan of 30 identical "thanks for your reply/interest", its ok to summarize when publicly addressing groups, you can always use /msg for 30 identical thank you notes
But I dislike the rare and disingenuous non-responsive thank-you-then-copy/paste-something-verbatim-again, but I think we can all agree on that
Use two parentheses: (Like this: :) )
Use one parenthesis: (Like this: :)
Reverse direction of the smiley: (Like this: (: )
Use angle/square brackets instead of parentheses
Use C-style commenting to set the smiley off from the closing parenthesis
Make the smiley a dunce: (:>
I disapprove of emoticons
