Oh here we go Me again on about the buttons on here So the like button Do you tend to hit it automatically out of habit or just to be seen to be nice and liking the post Or do you tend to only press like when you really like a post Or not press it at all whether you like the post or not I have no set policy on this

There are sometimes articles I really do not agree with, but the fact that we disagree it still adds points to my account. So I press like.

Same here. Arguing is a healthy thing. So long as we don't take the argument too personally.

@JimBo452020 Eh, a dislike button would add negative vibes to the site. I like the fact that I feel "safe" and "almost loved" here.

Unless the person has blocked me, I'll like a post. Often times, I might not know how I want to reply, but I can show I at least, read it, by liking it. I feel if I show my support in some small way, it will come back to me.

@JimBo452020 Heh. Such a simple post on your part (yes, I liked it), but nuanced in a way. I might NOT like a post that's really poorly written or obviously by a newbie who thinks they can make money here. If we disagree politically, I'll still like the post I'm arguing with.

I like all posts that I visit, but NEVER the posts of the ones who blocked me for no reason.

@JimBo452020 Correct, I wonder if the new Admin can convince Bugs to remove the block button.

@LadyDuck Well I hope.so. Maybe if enough of us make the request. That's the only way it might be removed. I'm sure Admin is reading this as we speak

Usually I will only "like" a discussion if I do not leave a reply. Same goes for comments.

Why have a like button at all? A " hate" button would be of more interest

@JimBo452020 A "hate" button will cause a lot of problems and perhaps a lot of hate lol.

@lovebuglena Aye so put the dislike button on Get rid of the like button and the block button It would be much more interesting and might shut up some of these people who seem to think that just because someone disagrees them it's abuse or hate or harassment. I am sick fed up of people telling me they have been abused on here because they really havent

@JimBo452020 I don't like getting into arguments so I don't post on controversial discussions. Occasionally I'll like a post but not comment. Sometimes I get stuck for what to say.

The majority of time I hit Like to show that I've read the post whether I actually like it or not. I feel bad hitting Like when it's a sad situation, though.
