I'm not sure how I fit into your classification, so I'll give you the facts and await your judgment on whether I'm acceptable.
When I respond to a post it is as you see, no salutation. But if someone responds to my post (and seems even halfway reasonable) from that point
onward I will address him as "Dear" and close with "With respect."
I do that because the person has shown themselves to be someone speaking to me in an adult manner. That makes him an entity worth respecting and
showing courtesy to. (Besides, every human is "dear" to God, who am I to argue?)
As an aside, I don't support OWS.
