Hi All,

I tend to do a lot of communication throughout the day, whether it's phone calls, emails, or in-person appointments. Obviously, there's lots of "Good afternoons" and "buh-byes" in all that. Plus, I grew up on dial-up BBS's and Usenet, where those were equally common.

To me, the whole notion of not having a salutation or greeting is just weird, foreign, and borderline rude. Editing out someone's attempt at being polite is even more absurd.

This is not Wikipedia, where there is only one true answer for a particular topic or question. There are a lot of people who make the site happen, and taking away thiertheir attempts at personalizing the site and their responses seem just seems pedantic.

Sincerely,

Alex

2 fixed typo (normally, i'd edit out the greeting and signature as well, but you did that for effect... ;-)
