Is there an etiquette about sending notes to mefites you have not met?

This seems to be too basic for an Ask Mefi (I used mine up yesterday anyway) but I was wondering about contacting members I have not met or have not interacted with on the site.
Yesterday, after a couple of good responses that led me to my answer, I sent a brief note to thank them. I am assuming this is fine based on their responses.
But what if I have a quick question and know (based on their responses on the site and their profiles) that it is possible to go to the source and ask a question.
Is this ok? Is it a bother? I am not talking about weird personal questions, but rather "Have you read x? Would you recommend it? Any other directions I should be going?"
