OK... going on a limb here but I think Trip Advisor would be a much nicer place if the phrase "Thanks in Advance" was banned from all posts. Here's something I lifed from a Yahoo thread which sums up my feelings on the topic:
"Thanks in advanvce!" has become a thin veil for "I'm feigning being polite because in reality I don't want to take the time to properly thank you when I should so I'll just ask and thank you all at once so I don't have to be inconvenienced by properly expressing my appreciation later, when I should. This is really more convenient for me."
Anybody else bugged by this ??
Happy Trails :)
P.S. I tried searching for a similar thread and all it brought up was 400,000 threads in which someone said, "Thanks in Advance" :)
