message to Jody:
"With all due respect, a post like the one below does nothing to
topic. A thanks is better addressed directly to the person you are
or held until there is substance to go with it. It takes unneccessary
bandwidth and ads noise to archives. Even though saying thanks seems
polite thing to do, it actually is bad form in a list group such as
But today I noticed the above quoted thank you notes, one of them by
our moderator, and so I'm confused.
I'm wondering: Do the NTB lists have an official policy on whether or
not we should post "thank you" messages? I think it adds to the
friendly atmosphere on the list to see posts like the "thank you"
messages quoted above. But I'll abide by whatever rule is in force
for these lists.
Is it really "bad form" to post a "thank you" to the list?
