The like button should be removed from this forum

If someone has something to say they should say it instead of just hitting the like button.

The like button turns discussions into popularity contest and cronyism  and lets face it is no doubt abused by posters with sock accounts.

The cons of this feature far outweigh the pros.

Also I feel they should put the post counts back on display.

I think you're the only one who cares.

Me thinks someone is self conscious about his like status, or lack thereof. Me also thinks some people complain about EVERYTHING.

Ive used the like button for when I see a good point or a responce similar to what I would write. Extremely rare have I ever seen people ask for other to check the "like" .  On a few threads where everyone has kept on topic and a decent discussion has happened I'll go through and hit a few likes as well. i don't see the "popularity contest " with it since it only shows like for that responce and not the overall likes for a forum member. Even with that they didn't put a dislike button there to help keep the negativity at bay. They did allow us to rate post though with a star system which still tries not to use negative terms just a low star count because it was hmmmmmmm fluffier than a dislike.

SInce they changed it to a point system instead of a post count perhaps show the points or as you work your way through the points have your level number change color 0-1000 points white 1000-2000 blue and so forth. Until you hit level 2 then same thing with color coding.

Let the post speak for itself, as far as I know the like button has no additional effect.. if it affected which posts were near the top of the forum or something like that then it would need protection from abuse but otherwise is doesn't really mean anything so I don't see the problem? There really are no pros or cons. What have you experienced to make you post about it?

Thats it!

Everyone who posts gets a "like" just for the effort
