A very annoying voice in the back of my head keeps warning me to not anthropomorphize, and talking about  “showing gratitude” in this context may be stretching things a bit too far, but I buy the idea of a display of joy – I was going to write “hook, line and sink” but that is scarcely appropriate here…

UPDATE: I forgot to add: I hope this earns some points for us when the giant alien probe arrives in a couple of centuries. 🙂
