Somebody just started a little fashion: "awaiting a response". 

Please don't do this. 

First, it is unnecessary. 

Second, it may create the impression that you, the customer, are 
waiting impatiently for service. I am sure that those posting 
questions should not want to create that impression. Any reply 
you get is a courtesy, not an obligation.
