I am quite curious if it's quite logical and reasonable to say 'thank you in advance'. I know it's quite common, but I've never used it. Would a native say so? I would also like a few comments (of yours) on this.

I would just stick to using Thank You. Thank You in advance sounds ... different ...
It's OK in casual English. But it assumes that the other person will do what is asked, so only use it if you are sure about this.
I would avoid it in business English.
mainak.basudevI guess we can use it here (englishforums.com)No problem!
It's definitely better than saying nothing at all(some people forget say 'thank you')
Yes, I'm constantly amazed at how some people here never say 'please' or 'thank you'.
I'm starting to wonder if politeness is just not a feature of some cultures at all.
People are waiting to help.
