Is SO an appropriate place for comments like

  • God Bless you all...
  • God bless you.....
  • Thanks a lot and God bless.
  • God blessed. I finally got the solution.
  • Thank you and God Bless!

  • God bless scripting languages and their "language features"...
  • ..tc,god bless u...

  • Offensive? Really? You find "God bless you" offensive? – Shadow Mar 18 '14 at 7:36

    @Łukas not a dupe, the one here talk about comments, the other one about answers. Those are two very different things. – Shadow Mar 18 '14 at 7:38
  • @Łukasz웃Lツ Not a dupe, for a different reason - there's no mention of deities in that question, as it seems to be dedicated to "thank you"s. – michaelb958 Mar 18 '14 at 7:44
  • I'm sure there must be a questions about 'thank you' in questions, only I couldn't quickly find it. However, the answers from those about comments apply perfectly here. 'Thank you & CO' are noise, in both questions and answer. 'God bless you' is just another 'thank you' form. – Danubian Sailor Mar 18 '14 at 7:46

No, and it has nothing to do with the “God” part. All “thanks” comments with no other substance are always subject to removal. (All comments are always subject to removal.) If you think they’re too chatty or not constructive, flag them as such.

So, for instance, your example here (assuming there was something beyond the colon) would be perfectly fine:

  • God bless me! I found a good method:

    I believe this is in reference to a post made a few years ago he just edited stackoverflow.com/questions/3159688/… - "The creator of the colorpicker helped and fixed the things I needed. God bless the creator =)" - I'm of the opinion this was fine as it was. – jdphenix Mar 18 '14 at 4:45

    Ah, yep. I’d definitely consider that “too minor”. – Ry- Mar 18 '14 at 4:47

Only if those gods correctly answer the question. But even in that case, an upvote is better, because even the gods have to worry about their reputation.
