Allow an Option "Need a Reply" in Conversations

This is the weird thing. Many a times I don’t reply to messages because the other party is obviously ending off the conversation. There’s not much need to reply to messages like “Let me know in future if you need my service.”, “All right.”, “Okay, noted.”, “Take care.”… unless you just want to create an endless list of formalities and sweet nothings to upkeep your response rate. My response rate currently is at an abysmal 50% because half of the messages in my inbox are farewell messages.

Can we have an option, whereby we can choose an option “require a reply” in our messages? Thus for messages that don’t require a reply, they will not affect our response rates. For those who need a reply to their message, it’ll be clearly indicated.

You just need to reply to the first message as that’s the only one that counts towards the response rate. That’s what I understood from previous threads in any case.

Oh, I didn’t know that. Thanks!

Reply to @zeromark: Yes! You are absolutely correct.
