    I almost never do.

    (I'd probably have to hire an administrative assistant if I did. I get so much :tongue: )


    But I sometimes feel I'm being impolite by not doing it since I get so many thank you PM myself.


    What would Miss Manners advise?

    It makes it a little easier now that we get the rep notice PMs. All you have to do is reply. But I still hesitate because my message storage gets filling up and I imagine I would be doing the same to others if I was to reply to the notifications.

    I almost never send PM's to acknowledge rep, but I do frequently leave someone a visitor message.

    This is the ONLY board I have ever been on that has people PMing for thanking for rep

    Now I have PM'ed when I intended to send pos rep and somehow it got sent as negative.. the person understood what I had intended, giving praise for a funny post.. so all was good

    I don't, but I do other things sometimes. It depends, sometimes there's nothing to be said.
