Dear readers of SharePointmeta,
Has already covered this topic, however we are seeing it at the moment.
While I understand that salutations and thanks are not SE conduct I also recognise there is at times that you are required to be polite.
The recommendations in the above thread are to not moderate/edit a post to just remove this components, but the recommendation is also that these go into a comment for clarity of Q&A.
However I stand to make the point that while I know certain people want to be shown to be active, that this is not a valid reason for a edit in SE. Also at the end of the day if we cannot be polite to another human being in our field then who can we be polite to?
Kind regards, Hugh Wood
