I would like to know, is my signature rude ? Recently I received some comments from few members regarding it, that's why the question.

Personally, I don't find anything rude about it.

That's a relief!

A senior pointed fingers at me here :http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5/#post4162919

That's why I was concerned about the sig.

You might find some people interpret it as such: you state that "not replying is considered rude"; some folks don't like to be told they're being rude, especially as it's such a subjective measure.

People don't have to reply, as far as I'm concerned, if they've indicated my post has been helpful (Did you find this post helpful? Yes | No).

Overall, though, it's not rude so much as it's a little forward.

YMMV. I'm a thick-skinned person who doesn't find many things offensive, but since YOU touched on the subject and probably expect some feedback on that, PERSONALLY I find reminding people to 'reply' or 'mark thread solved' unnecessary. I wouldn't call it rude, though. It's clear that you do it in good faith to keep LQ in order. I personally don't do it. IMO, It's not my business if people follow with a reply or mark a thread solved.

Most of the newbies and new members do not respond to their threads perhaps coz. they don't know how it goes on a forum and I feel as if I was taking to walls and I feel bitter!

I learnt when I helped someone and he didn't respond, that was the first time I realized how one feels on that, but most newbies are not here to help others..so they will not learn unless told IMO

Yes it's correct. But the "in my imagination" is redundant unless you might be visualising somewhere else.

So I should write "I tend to visualize things.", thanks.

and I am happy that there is at least one English speaker who posts at day time!
