    Yeah.. That's true.

    I'm with bighead. I would never post just to tell someone I thought something they said was funny or interesting. Don't know why. But over the years, a few people have lamented that they've always felt underappreciated/invisible/whatever. Those are usually the people I admire the most (T-6005 and harleyquiiin come to mind). With a "like" button, they might know just how obsessed with them I am.

    People do not have time to express ourselves in words in the 21st century. We just want to press buttons and screens, communicate with a few simple words like the cavemen that we are.

    Randy, you are a man of few words. I imagine something like a 'like' button would give you more of a voice, so to speak.

    Yeah, "like" means both a lot of nothing and not much of something at the same time.
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    Tijs, I think it would be fun to installed a LIKE button. I guess it won't be as annoying nor irritating after all. Sorry.

    I post on a different internet forum that has like buttons, and a post that gets enough likes (ten or more) gets a little star next to it. Personally, I like it that way. Generally speaking, I only click "like" on a post when I've read and understand/agree with the point the poster was trying to make, but don't really have anything of value to add to the discussion.

    Also -- and I might be wrong here -- but I feel like a "like" feature might cut down on thread necromancy too ("liking" a post instead of bumping to say you agree or whatever).

    Nothing wrong with a little necrophilia. Did it ever hurt you to see a long-dead thread return? What if it was an influential thread, like the one about a guy getting fucked to death by a horse?

    I know I resurrected a dead Greg K thread, but it died again just as quickly, haha.
    I'm starting to come around. You are have brought up some good points about having a like button, as long as people don't misuse it. I still think it should be a rock/rock on button.

    P.S. Getting fucked by a bear is deadlier, 'xilla.
