Exactly. It is again creating something that some people will feel obligated to
Also, it would lead to hurt feelings, or thoughts of "did they even see my
thanks?", if the recipient /doesn't/ then utilize the "thanks for the thanks"

downsides. I'm just noting them, in case you or anyone else hadn't. :)
