It was still a odd thing to say to people especially when they are resonding to the rather strange topic title "What's happening?" - what is happening where, when? "Just saying hi" is also not paticulary original but no one here was rude enough to mention it. People often just say "Hi" and that is fine, we in turn welcome that person to our forums.
