    Seems as though there have been several posts lately where a question is asked, replies are given, then you never hear from the original poster again to acknowledge that any help has been given or question was answered. Seems weird. Just an observation.

    I  wonder how many are  weekend warriors, and how many are die hard nuts.  Maybe  that’s where the difference is. I’m not trying to put anyone down, but I think some of  us eat, sleep, live a archery/ hunting.  Others start thinking about it a month before season starts. That’s where I think the different groups are, just my opinion Though.

    I think there are a combination of reasons, none of which are acceptable, though from time to time we all might be guilty.  Sometimes, mostly when the forum is a little more active, a thread can find its way on to the second page and if the poster has received the response that he/she requires, he may not revisit the post even though others have offered information.  Other times it’s being lazy – “Hey, I got my answer and I’m moving on.”   Like I said, not a good reason.
    A friend of mine once said, “It doesn’t cost anything to be friendly.”  I try to remember that.
    Hey “99″ – Thanks for bringing this to light.

    I’ve noticed that a lot, and I agree with Conquestador. It only takes a minute to acknowledge and say “Thanks,” but I’ve been guilty of doing it too. Thanks for the reminder 99fatboy!

    I take it as a lack of common courtesy, which unfortunately has become all too common everywhere, not just on this forum, and not a distinction between one group or another. If lack of courtesy does define a group, I’d suggest that it defines the “Internet/Social Media” culture, perhaps because of the lack of human, face-to-face contact.

    In other cases, it is easy to sort out the Trolls from those who just overlook saying, “Thanks”. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    Could also be ghost accounts trying to stir up activity and traffic…  Just a thought.

    I feel, as most replies stated, that it is indeed a general lack of respect or gratitude. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised, as we see it more and more in our day to day encounters with rude or disrespectful people. It ‘s just nice to know if indeed they ever read the replies, if they helped, or they don’t care to say “thanks”. I’m hoping that they’re just forgetful!!!

    I think it also reflects the lost sense of community, too. If you’re not here because of friendships built over the long run, there’s simply not going to be much compulsion to check back in to say ‘thanks’. I also can’t help but think that if people see the lack of activity here at times, then maybe they are taking their questions elsewhere to places where they think they may get a quicker reply. {#emotions_dlg.typotux}

    Although I may have been guilty of this myself on occasion ({#emotions_dlg.mathews_embarassed}), I, too, find it somewhat discourteous when the OP does not acknowledge the opinions or help provided in response to a question. Is it a sign of the times? To a large extent, I would say yes. I see it on a regular basis at the university. While students today are just as smart and nice as they were in my day, the sense of entitlement and the degree of narcissism among many younger people seems to have grown exponentially in the last generation. I suppose if you spend more time dealing with others via texting and social media than face-to-face, one’s interpersonal skills either decline of fail to develop in the first place.

    It happens a lot. I’m sure most don’t mean anything by it.

    Also, many thank-you’s are sent via PM. Where the OP is happy with the original reply and looks to that same individual with follow up questions privately.

    Good point, Vince. I hadn’t given consideration to that, but it does make a lot of sense! {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    I think you hit the nail squarely on the head in at least some cases.

    i think new folks just use the shotgun approach..put a question out there on a myriad of forums.  probably a book-keeping/logistical  problem from then on..they forget where they posted. check AT..you see the exact questions sometimes..verbatim.

    so..on behalf of all the rude folks..i would love to extend a warm thanks!!  hahah.
