Thanking users who answered my question
Is it important to say “thanks” after getting correct answer?

My question was edited by respectable Stack Overflow member. Only thing that was changed - removed "Thank you!" at the bottom of question.

Is there any particular reason why should I not say that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
It's unfortunate if that was the only edit, it seems like needless noise to me. But if there's something else in the question that could be improved, removing the thanks and greetings and so on makes enough sense. –  sarnold Dec 12 '11 at 7:33

Why would additional edits be a requirement? –  Robert Harvey Dec 12 '11 at 16:38

Think of your question (and it's answers) as a mini blog post. The goal of writing a blog post is (or should be) to provide useful information to others with a minimum of noise and clutter.

Would you say "Thank You!" in your blog? What for?

Instead of saying "Thanks," upvote the answers that helped you, and accept the answer that helped you the most.

Better yet, pay it forward by answering the questions of others.
