A question. In spoken American English, do you feel different if I say as below?

  1. Thank you for "the" comment.
  2. Thank you for "your" comment.

If I say your, does that sound repetitious?

  • I think both mean the same when answering someone's comment.

Both are equally fine. And "Thank you for your comment" is quite common and doesn't sound repetitive at all. In fact, although I can't provide any evidence nor can I explain this, but it feels to me that the version with "your" is even more frequent than the version with "the". It sounds more specific in some way.
