I generally agree with this. I send thank yous after screeners very sparingly if I can tell the interviewers would appreciate them (e.g. smaller firm, market consideration, just a general-vibe). However, I've gotten CBs from firms w/o thank yous too so that's that.
Our Career Services said to send thank yous during OCI too. To me this is pretty irrational sending like 10 thank yous a day (that are proofread to hell b/c of grammar dinging a candidate) and some in the afternoon after a 9AM interview when they've probably made up their mind already.
