It's already been said, much can be gained from a thread that has no further feed back from the OP. I've come across threads that were a few years old that provided some good info for what I wanted to do. I may not have commented on them, but they were helpful just the same.
I've also started threads that had some suggestions that were so far off base that it wasn't what I was either looking for, or the direction that I wanted to go. In those cases I usually just say thanks and move on...
just my thoughts
Good point. I know that some us here (myself included) benefit from these threads regardless of OP feedback. Just makes me wonder: why not post a "thanks for the responses" or the like? Oh, well!
