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

The moon would breakup at the Roche limit
The wire would turn the Earth into a giant electromagnet
The Earth would turn into a giant yo-yo.
The moon would orbit every ~24 hours, significantly changing the lunar calendar
The centripetal force would rip out the Earth's core
All man-made satellites would be destroyed, causing great havoc
Moon landings would become significantly easier
The rope or wire would break, no matter how strong it was
The Vulcans would show up for First Contact causing yet another revision to the timeline
The Galactic Police would snip the rope and put the Earth on probation
Some idiot would get terrible, terrible, rope burn
We finally get those golf balls back
