Quite often, I feel in a dilemma about how to respond, and if one should when it comes to the comments people make about pictures one posts. People have obviously taken the time and trouble to look and write a response, and in most cases it's a carefully considered and thoughtful response - and more often that not, kind and generous. I feel I should thank each and every respondent, but I almost never do as I am sensitive to a. huge threads and b. the fact that some people use this as a technique to bump the post up. Generally, therefore, I might thank people for looking in one single posting in the thread. Do you think that this could be regarded as ungrateful or seem to be arrogant by some people ? I am truly grateful for every comment I get, but I wonder what the correct and considerate "netiquette" is for this - without doubling the size of the comments in a single thread... Best Peter Oh, and PS -- Thanks in advance for your responses!
