If I see an introduction here, I say hello. Not only cause I like being polite. Also I remember how it was when I was a newbe, trying to find out how it works.
If someone says hello, and I answer, then (s)he knows the post was succesful, and knows how to read the answer. With an answer to a post, the basics are clear.
@rudolf I tried doing that too, but have to admit I lately stick to my personal feed and try not to spend as much time online...
@rudolf Plus it's great to greet the new users with a warm welcome, I sure loved it when I joined :)
