I'm seeing a strange habit on the rise for the past few weeks: Answer posts that are finished by "Thanks, NameOfAnswerPoster". Of course I delete that if there are other things to fix in the post.
My only question is if anyone can think of a reason why more and more users finish their answers with "thanks"? It strikes me as odd to thank someone for a deed you did. Do more people with a language background that does not differ between "you're welcome" and "thank you" flock SO (is there even such a language?), or can someone think of another reason?
