I generally assume that any help I provide on any mailing list is
appreciated and that the person on the receiving end it eternally
thankful for having just a smidgen of my endless wisdom bestowed upon
them. (*lol*, are you laughing yet?) In any case, a quick "Thank you"
is always welcome and really doesn't take up that much space. Should
you wish to write a long drawn out thank you note the person(s) who
helped you it would surely be welcome too. I can't imagine anyone being
bothered by the words "Thank you" in any form.
