Some people hate being thanked.

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 16, 2012, 11:14 PM



I don't understand why some people hate  being thanked so much. Is it just annoying or something? I thought it was a very polite thing to do but some people can't stand it. I just thanked someone for watching me and they removed me because of it. This isn't the 1st person I've met who hates it. Note they usually have signs that say not to thank them but I know most people don't have time to look through every profile. The only thing I usually do pay attention to on someone's page is their art.
Should I just stop thanking everyone?   :grump:

Okay, that's VERY weird. Well, should we perhaps note how much people like that roams in sites like DA... Well, if you don't care to thank, I think ya shouldn't stop...

(off apart... Wow, after ages, I finally logged for real o_o )

Most people don't mind getting thanked, but getting your profile list spammed with "thanks for watching!" "thanks for the fave!" gets pretty annoying.

Some people just don't like other people. It is in their nature. When someone like that makes their personality known, it is questionable whether or not you want them to watch you on DA. It brings up a couple of issues, such as if they watched you because they like your art, or if they like you as a person. The fact that this person un-watched you simply for showing your personality is a testament to the personality they have; in this case, it seems for the better that they aren't watching you.

I don't hate being thanked but I prefer not being thanked because it clutters up my shout box. And I don't want to have to reply your welcome to every single one. People are just too lazy to do that.

I don't think people have to reply back to being thanked and why do comments on your profile matter much really? I've never had anyone talk about the comments on my profile to me. I assume people don't go through the trouble of that.

Its a complicated answer. Im in different about it I go through phase of thanking people in return and sometimes i don't. Its no harm just empty the inbox. Stop being lazy and judgmental, learn to take a complement without harassment.

Thank all you want if you mean it.

People who hate just got to get over it. Ya it can be annoying but your mostly annoyed with yourself. Its like mail you can tell the post office to stop sending you junk mail or your email but you'll still get it. Just as bad saying don't thank me same conclusion, some one else you just thank you for the Hell of it.

People will agree to disagree but this are the overall general info.

hahaha I'm one of those people, though I wont stop watching someone because of it.
I find it annoying mostly because it makes me think they have nothing better to do with their time.

well it only takes a minute to thank someone. Personally I don't thank for favs but I do for watches.

Haha nope.
This is true, but if you have a lot of people adding you it adds up. It just depends on the person I guess.
BTW be prepared to be bombarded by another upload ;P
Also I have puke of some sort on my pants 0.o

It may not be hate, it may be the inability to accept it gracefully. Most have a lower opinion of themselves and don't know how to handle praise.

For llamas, I generally give one back. For watches, I will usually thank. For favs, I generally don't. In my case, I say that it isn't necessary to thank me, but will still reply with a quick you're welcome if I am thanked. As I generally add a lot to my favs at one time, I get several thanks at once, and it can be annoying at times, but copy/paste works well. ;)

Not yet. I've seen people who put all over their page "Don't thank me" but haven't had anyone get upset at me for thanking them.

I just don't reply. I purposely put on my profile not to thank you, you are welcome, twice in bold. no one reads.
but you are right, there is no need to be rude.

It becomes a pain, because it crowds up your profile and it gets annoying for 18+ thank you for the favs!

It may be just me, but I don't really get it - do these people also get mad in real life, when someone thanks them for doing some small favor? I totally don't mind when someone thanks me for anything (even a llama), plus I generally thank others for their watches (rarely for faves, as I'm pretty much inactive here lately) to show that I'm actually glad someone decided to watch my, uh, "gallery". Getting pissed off because someone said "thank you!" is very rude.
