Does it annoy you when someone messages you to thank you for choosing them for Best Answer?

Someone I chose for BA messaged me to thank me and had actually apologized - in the same message - for it because "some find it annoying"..according to her. I want to know if this is true for any of you!

  • I don't care one way or another.  I don't get upset if someone chooses my answer as best and then doesn't send me a message and I don't get upset if someone does.  I don't send messages to people who have chosen my answer as best answer just because, well, I don't actually know what to say other than thankyou.  It's something to think about though.  What if that thankyou made that persons today.  Or maybe that thankyou is the only thankyou they hear that day.  Good point -AJ!

  • I've gotten lots of thank you's and it doesn't annoy me. People appreciate knowing that they were appreciated. It did make me think perhaps I should START sending thank you's...

  • it's funny because I never thought of sending a thank you until i received one from someone who I gave a best answer award to. Now I usually send a thank you with a little comment. I am not sure if there is a right anwser although if it does bother people I wish I knew so I don't bother them.

  • I don't find it annoying, but I think it's unnecessary.
