If you click on the user name in the upper left of the post it will open a window showing the options that user allows. For instance

Not all users allow all the options including the PM. If you just wish to acknowledge the post you can just click on "Reply". Most of us would rather you do it this way because if your reply indicates that a post solved your problem or you have further questions it supplies this information to others using the site.
