If you follow my messages for help, I always end with:"Thanks for
This solves the issue of thanking the person on list and saves me
the trouble of mailing the person off list. If the help has been
really great, I mail them off list anyway.

And it's only a
suggestion, as I don't want to see them snuffed out. Those of us
who get them appreciate them and I know I'm motivated to send them
when someone has helped me.
Consider sending things like, "Thanks," "That's great to know," or
other non-technical content in response to assistance you've
received via the Reply to Sender link at the end of the message
where you got that help. It does help to reduce group traffic and
I know that I have had some very pleasant, and meandering,
conversations where someone has approached me this way which would
never have occurred had the thanks been offered on group.
I say this because as of this moment, we have 1297 members, and
every message that gets posted to the group, including this one,
lands in everyone's inboxes. Anything each of us can do to limit
actual on-group traffic to focus on NVDA itself is a kindness as
it reduces inbox clutter for all those not directly involved in
any sort of private exchange. And while thanking someone isn't
truly private, I believe you all understand what I mean in terms
of group traffic being reduced.
Just something to consider. It's not a rule, and I have no
intention of lobbying for it to become such.

They Ask Me If I'm Happy; I say Yes.
