Don't hate me, but am I the only one who thinks it's unnecessary to thank someone for MH on GAG?

I know, I know, I should say thank you! Where are my manners?

Most Helpful Guy

  • That's really if they want to. I personally think in general the most helpful thing shouldn't have value because all you really need to do to get it is blindly agree with the QA and tell them what they want to hear which can be very different from the real answer they may need to accept.

    Like I'll give you an example. Let's say a girl is in a relationship and madly in love with a guy who slaps her in the face when they fight and has done so multiple times. She wants to stay with him but asks what she should do. She gets flooded with answers of "Leave this guy! He's abusive!" types of answers. But you get 1 guy who says "Hive him another chance. He's a good guy."

    Like you could have a guy who makes a question like "Why are all women gold diggers" and have tons of girls and guys offering answers about not spending money on them, finding different places to meet women, etc. But then another bitter guy comes along and says "Yea! They're all gold diggers! They just want money. They're liars and cheats!" and he'll get most helpful.

    That 1 answer will most likely get MH because it's what she wanted to hear. I see this constantly on this site. I constantly see people looking for "opinions."

  • I just do it because I think it's the polite thing to do, plus I'm usually genuinely appreciative. :-)

  • I do it at times. I thank the fact that the other person has evaluated my answer as being the most helpful. It means I'm glad that they think that my input was the most valuable; it's an honor, really.

  • Well people don't have to award anyone MH.. So I thank them for taking the time to choose when they pick me. It isn't like I thank them for me giving the best answer :P

  • Just saying thanks isn't suppose to be a big deal is it? I like to say thanks that's just how I am. But if you don't like it don't say it.

  • Initially when I started GAG I thought it was pointless, but I've noticed how many questions go without ever being rated an MH, so I understand it now.

  • Sometimes I don't say it (like when it was a question from months ago or I was the only answerer or something lol), but most times I do. I noticed most people doing it on the old GaG in response to my question, so I just kind of recognized it as a common courtesy and picked it up out of habit, I suppose.

  • There is no spoken rule that you will be punished for not saying Thank you here in GaG or thought of being a snob. :)

  • I don't hate you, but I always say thank you. It doesn't hurt anyone and no one else has to read it, so I really don't see the problem :/

  • I thank them because I appreciate them giving me MH.
    But it's not like I feel obligated to thank them or anything, I simply do because I want to.
    PLUS, my comment will keep the question in LIVE FEED longer and hopefully get the QA more opinions ^_^
