What do you think about "Thank you"-nodes?

?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

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
I make decisions, and my brain carries them out
My brain makes the decisions, and I observe them (if I'm lucky)
I make some decisions, and my brain makes others
My spouse makes decisions and I and my brain carry them out
I wrote a program to relieve me and my brain from the burden of decision-making
The black-helicopter people project the decisions into my brain and then I do as ordered
