Modern Manners Monday – Thank You – Notes Yes or No?

At my son's birthday party a few weeks ago, I was actually told, “Please don't worry about a thank you note. We never send them and it is completely fine. We know that he appreciates the gift. You make us all feel bad anyway.”
I was a little surprised. Stunned actually. I like sending thank you notes. I think that it is polite and the right thing to do. I really did not know how to respond or what to do.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
