No, my friend, that is being lazy.
It means a lot more to the provider of the information if you actually put your thanks into words in a post. It shows that you really appreciate it. Otherwise, it conveys the impression that you were not really bothered whether you got the information or not.
At least, that is my feeling on the matter. If I were the recipient of a "push-button" thank you from someone, I would be very tempted to cease providing specific information to that someone.

My usage of the button is not being lazy, but assists the reader to see exactly to what (and to whom) I am replying.

This is my first and possibly my last post ever on the internet, as i do not use any social media at all, what i wanted was to have access to the large ammount of information from knowlegable people. like i said this is my only post so there will be no replys
Just consider, if the posters should hold back to let someone else post, things would be very quiet and the forum would probably collapse. God forbid!!!However, if such members do have the time to log in to the Forum and read everything, they should also have the time to be able to log into, and casually monitor, radar tracking apps (like adsbexchange.com) and then, who knows, they might even be able to contribute something pertinent. I do not think that they really can hide behind the "I haven't got the time or the equipment" argument. There must be a lot of members who have to allocate their time between work, family, pleasure, hobby, etc and manage quite successfully to achieve the right balance.
