"The Following Users Say Thank You For This Useful Post: "
I find the above new "feature" to be annoying and decidedly, well, not useful. My surface gripe is that "Thanks" statistics of each and every "Thanker" consumes significant amounts of space, all amounting to useless crap which needs to be scrolled through, at times adding literally pages to each thread. Aren't other people's responses thanks enough? Or is a "Thanks" the new, quick "reply" to a post. But deeper than that, it bugs me because it's just another manifestation of this whole social connection thing which has really gotten out of hand in society. Do people really need their ego's stroked by others non-stop? With all this needing to be "connected" 24/7 in every way imagineable, it now seems nobody knows what to feel about anything until and unless they know how everybody else feels about it. One example is, it seems society has lost the ability to digest facts and information presented in news, without having a bunch of "talking heads" tell them what the facts really "mean." So, I really could not give a rat's ass how many other users find my post useful, and I don't need my ego stroked by having my name in a list of "Thanks."
This just bugs me. Maybe if you agree with me, you could "Thanks" this post? Ummm, wait...

What in the world was the Administrator of the site thinking when they added the Thanks feature? They could be packing all that "wasted" Thanks space with even more advertising, trying to sell us even more things (read useless crap), which lets face it, some marketing geniuses have determined we cannot possibly live without.
I'm still waiting for the No Thanks button. Now that would be useful.
