I like to say hello when I sit down. If players are being chatty in a good way (pleasant, able to laugh at themselves) I'll chat back.
I'd like to think that there is some basic etiquette at the tables where you should say NH or GG. I'm playing at such small stakes that I don't think I need to be messing with anyone's head!
My thing is that I get really annoyed at rude comments when someone's on tilt. When you're playing for $1 or a freeroll, really! If you're going to get that upset about a bad beat, maybe you shouldn't be playing. That's the advantage of online play; you can mute the players!
