Yehudh bn Shlmo
I would like to say one thing before someone
terminates this thread. I myself always send a reply
and "thank you" whether the information is useful or
not. However, I normally only look at messages that I
am interested in, or that have the same subject I
posted to the group. If someone responds with a
different subject, I may miss it. And yes, I once
found a response in my Trash bin that I had not looked
at. But I am a member of a lot of groups and can't
open and read every email.
The point is, is that it is possible that some
reposes may not be looked at if the subject isn't the
same. However for all those that are read, a response
and thank you is certainly appropriate.
Finally, whether you get thanked or not for a
response that is useful or not, you still perfumed a
Mitzvah, which is what it is all about.
With thanks for giving me the opportunity to reply,
