I never noticed that saying "thank you" in a reply gets you downvoted. As a matter of fact I usually ++ a reply from the OP, as I find it very polite to let people know that you have read and appreciated their answers.

    How do you know everyone else acts the same way? I've certainly come across downvoted thank-you nodes, and sometimes downvoted them myself (for various reasons outside them being thank-yous). Most of the time, though, I don't vote on them at all (although I do appreciate the gesture).

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      I didn't say that I know everybody acts the same way, just that I didn't notice it. Obviously everone's mileage varies!

    That agreed, I prefer to edit my own post to include a "Thank you". Better still saying what was most helpful and why.

      An even better system!
