Edit powers activate! Removing Hi/Thanks

It seems like lately there have been a lot more users posting their questions as such:


I have a question. Blah blah blah blah...

Thanks! - My Name

It's been previously established that posting a signature is unnecessary, so I usually remove that. I've also been removing the greetings as well, due to it just decreasing the overall SNR.

I have two questions about this:

  1. Is this something I should continue doing or is removing these items too "intrusive"?
  2. Can some verbage be addeded to the posting dialogue (perhaps for new users only) that they don't need to post the greeting and closing?

  • I think I earned the Strunk and White from these sort of edits.

  • @ErikA Personnaly I really want to edit out the "any thoughts?" thing, but that's likely just me.

  • @sysadmin1138 Agreed, I typically edit those out as well if I'm feeling up to it.
