  That's a helluva question! Several answers presented themselves to me when I read it (like the cars I see passing on the street when I leave my crib). Imitiation? (of what and why?) Habit? (where'd ya pick it up?) So you can see that, just like the people I see in the cars on the street, of whomI have no idea where there going or why. Jeez, now I've got another itch to scratch and every time I begin to write "thanks" before hand, I'm sure I'll think of you. I might even ask other people about it!!!
  But thanks for the refs after the fact, too.

A general question for you: Why do people write "Thank you in advance."?
