I was really hoping that Annie would win out on this one.
I hate LIKE buttons.

People should take the time to respond to a post with actual words.
LIKE buttons are like a popularity contest for comments and threads.

That's so weird! I have no idea where that came from. Annie dislikes them too. (Though I'll admit that I like "like" buttons. ;-) )

Just dug in deeper. It connects somehow to FaceBook. hmmm. Going deeper.

I like Like on FB. I wouldn't like it here.

Apparently it -- the Like button -- gets attached to posts via the "FaceBook Connect" feature that has been here for years. I just never noticed that Like button before. But it must have been there, just hanging around quietly.

I see it way up at the top of the thread, just under the first "Reply to Thread" button.

I have read a lot of internet thoughts on the LIKE button.
And how people use it incorrectly.

For example, someone posts on Facebook that their cat died and they are so sad.
The post shows with 8 LIKES.
Really?

Again, if you want to respond to a post anywhere, do so with words of English.
Not LIKE or I HR U.

The dumbing down of communication between people never ceases to depress me.

Note to Agent: I was really tempted to take a page out of your book and intentionally bump into the dweeb who was walking in the parking lot, face glued to his little tiny computer screen/aka cell phone...but I chose grace and refrained. I'm sure it was something incredibly urgent like the latest addition to his Facebook feed, or what the weather might be like later in the day.
