Should 'Hi', 'thanks' and taglines and salutations be removed from posts?

Is it okay to start a question on SO with:

  • Hello
  • Hi
  • Hello everybody

or end it with:

  • Thank you
  • I apreciate your help
  • Looking forward to an answer

or something like this?

Sometimes when I decide to ask something, I don't really know if I should start saying Hello or similar or saying thank you at the end.

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.

maybe it is a good thing. But Dont think there is any restriction on how to use them. Its totally left to individuals. I believe this question would come under subjective and argumentive list. – Sachin Shanbhag Feb 21 '11 at 9:19
I've stopped doing this, as my answers were getting comments/edits for this. I still feel it's good manners, but bow to community opinion - or at least, those parts of the community that object enough to edit/comment. – Phil Lello Apr 23 '11 at 22:43

Please don't. It adds nothing to the question. See Should 'Hi', 'thanks,' taglines, and salutations be removed from posts?
