I'm not really thanking people for MHO at this point. Seems 90% of the time (or smth), is the admins now chosing the MHO's instead of the Asker him/herself. Should we get rid of the "Thanks for the MHO" courtesy or keep it. What do you think?

u know the asker's chosen it when it's less than 30days old.
if it's older than that then i don't say anything. when it's more recent i do, but not every time. i guess it just comes down to u, u know? how you feel, and whether it's just a part of who u are to say it or not.4

#1. Admins never selected MHOs. It is automatic system which selects MHO based on Xper rank, MHO%, time taken and the depth of opinion, how quickly you helped the asker and various other aspects.
#2. They're selected after 30 days if asker didn't select them.
#3. Because of new notification system, you're now notified about those automatically selected MHOs. That's why you're feeling that admins are now selecting them. They were also being awarded to you back then but you weren't notified.
#4. I thank the asker IF he/she selects it (not the automatic system) because "The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say 'thank you'. In between the two, the leader must become a servant and a debtor". It doesn't cost anything to say "thanks". They're good manners. There are a lot of users who give MHO to their friends, those who validates them by lying and the ones who just give it randomly. You could thank them for choosing YOU in this horde, for taking time, for respecting your opinion. I don't agree with that girl in this thread who said it's redundant because even tho you helped someone, you may learn from that question a lot. And it's like they appreciated your answer so, you should thank them and make them smile in return, no?
Good luck, fella :)6
