    I think it is optional in that situation.

    I would. In British English we often use 'cheers' as a small 'thank you', so it would be fine here.

    It's always polite to say 'thank you'. I think that some people who use this forum should learn how to say it, especially lately. Don't some of you agree with me?

    I know what you mean. The posters that I think you are talking about also seem to find it necessary to post in all caps.

    (It is indeed always polite to say "Thank you".)
