New people may not know about the Thanks feature. This draws it to their attention. Heck, a number of long time posters didn't know about it until someone drew it to their attention.

No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA

I just got another thank you, and it wasn't until now that I realized that this text:
I just wanted to let you know that I appreciated this post that you made. It's contributions like this that make this such a great community.
Is also not from the person, but from the system. It's kind of funny when you get that comment like that for posting, say, a limerick about a man from Nantucket.

I agree that the Thanks system is important -- one needs feedback.

I just used the Thanks button today (perhaps for the 1st time?). I typed in part of a message and when it filled the line on the screen, I hit the return key (like an old typewriter- type person) and the message was gone. Evidently it got sent because after I discovered that you're supposed to just keep typing (w/o the return key) before sending, and tried to send the 2nd message, the screen said I couldn't send 2 messages from the same thread.
