I know that, according to forum policy we're not supposed to say kind regards, much obliged, etc. when asking questions, and the same could also be said about comments.
Well, why can't we? In my opinion it would give a more humane touch to the community, and I wonder if those answering questions would not feel more appreciated.
Sometimes I get the feeling that by being a bit more polite, I could be improve the interaction between users in the forum. I'm not saying that if someone doesn't say thanks then they should be downvoted, or something... What I'm proposing is for the economics community to give a bit of leeway to their users when it comes to being polite.
Kind Regards =P
Edit: It seems I may have been understood. I'm not defending a 'facebook'/'linkedIn' version of the community. In fact, I do not think much good would come of that. What I'm saying that a minimum amount of politeness should be allowed (allowed, but not official policy), like thanks,etc.
