That's it !
I don't understand why are you making it such a big deal. I didn't ask for money or anything in return. I just reminded OP he can be thankful to those who have helped him. If a post has a considerable amount of "thanks", somebody with a similar problem in the future searching the forums, will know that post actually works.
I am in no way knowledgeable enough to try and help enough people and get thanks in return. (assuming that I really want them or gain something from them thanking me)
This is clearly the wrong place to discuss this but I apologize, I had to make clear my point!
