Brothers and sisters, could someone enlighten me as to the etiquette regarding the 'thanks' posts?, how, why and when etc.as I have no desire to appear less than courteous .

I have never run this down, but. There are times when 'thanks' means as much here as elsewhere and there are times when an effort has been made to add to the discussion;research, another viewpoint etc. where I have nothing to add at that time, but I feel appreciation should still be shown.
It strikes me that in matters 'forum' there are levels of involvement ranging from the plain fact that none of us would have this place without the input of others, right up to those posts where I learn something entirely novel. This probably results in some 'thanks' looking, at first glance, as odd.
Without being cloyingly appreciative at every turn and without ignoring input that has no direct bearing on the reader's life yet has merit all we have is the 'thanks'.
Oh. We do have scorn too. :)

I can only echo the words of : Blanche Dubois; "I rely on the generosity of strangers." :)

Brother Oudeis has once again stepped up to the breach and saved the day with his usual aplomb, and I would show my gratitude in the recognised fashion if I but knew how our friend (hmtmaj) procurred the bold type wording which accompanies his moniker above.

[if you so wish] Just click your mouse cursor on the word, 'thanks'. :)
