I really appreciate it when posters acknowledge my reply--a positive or negative response indicates acknowledgment. I often look to see what the results are and if there are none it means my post was either not read or dismissed. I find it difficult to deal with either, because I feel that I am wasting my time, and perhaps other's time also. Some of you are very good about answering yet I am still signing off as Frustrated, belle

Belle,
Thanks for instructing us in board ettiquette. Some of us are internet newbies and this is the only or one of very few boards we have used. I know I always check back and read posts, but I never thought that it would be common courtesy to say thanks.

SO THANK YOU BELLE

p.s. I am being sincere (I don't want this to sound sarcastic cause it's not)

Dear bellb,
Please TRY not to be offended if you do not get replies to a post, it kind of comes with the territory!
I would love to be able to sit & read every post & reply to them all BUT I simply do NOT have the time to do so! I suspect this is true for many.
You & your comments/questions ARE appreciated.

Sass,
That makes a great deal of sense. And it sure seems that this board has taken off as of late. It is difficult to read all of the posts. Sure wish the fibro board would do the same.

Thanks for your insight.

Thanks for your replies--You are very kind- to reply so quickly-----

Let me make it perfectly clear that it wasn't a thank you that I was looking for; it was more information on an individual's condition. Did it improve, get worse or was status quo maintained.

I never expect a thank you from a person who is ill, having been a caregiver for many years, but if a person reaches out for another than it behooves the other one to respond in whatever way they can. Some people were grouchy or grumpy others were angry or sad, very few could express gratitude and fewer yet had a great sense of humor as some of you do!

Since we are all ill more or less ---thank yous do not really have to be expressed they are understood. I do appreciate all of you very much. Wish you all well, belle

Belle - I am fairly new to this medium, and don't know all the rules yet. However, I want you to know that even if I don't reply I often nod my head and am grateful to learn (again) something new. I have read your many replies with great interest and have enjoyed them (and learned from them). Sass is right when she says some don't have time. That's me. My kids already are beginning to think they are orphans! I truly appreciate all of you learned, kind people who have posted so many instructional, informative threads and answers. I'm with you on the fibro board, Rose, you know it!

Thanks again Belle. (I can't do those smiley faces - I have a simple e-mail program and need to import them from somewhere) :-)

Couldn't email you from the thread I started on the mung beans, so I'll just shove this puppy back up to the top with this reply. Thanks for the new recipes for belgian endive and sprouts. I finally got a chance to print them out this morning, and will try them as soon as I get rid of the company we've had for a week. I love them dearly, but company is like fish, after 3 days it stinks!
