    Re: When I Receive Likes..

    When I get a lot of likes on a post, I look at its structure, details, and tone, and use those to try and improve future ones.

    I feel like doing very bad things to them while wearing a bunny suit.

    Funny, gets a like. Puts some knuck in their place, gets a like.

    Really useful and insightful, gets a like too.

    So its kind of meaningless.

    I would prefer being able to like the clever and thank the useful.

    I generally agree with your comment

    I note that there are a few people who will thank anyone who say calls me a "poop head" etc. Its almost pavlovian. I judge posts purely on the content.

    I think a "WHO"S YOUR DADDY!" would work well...then again maybe not.

    "Likes" make me feel validated as a human being...

    Warm and fuzzy are a bit of an overstatement, but I do like the like system.

    Re: When I Receive Likes..

    I wonder if it's like a little hit of dopamine to get liked on a post. Being liked makes you want to post more because you feel you've connected with people.

    Either way, I'd like a "dislike" button to go with it. I wonder which one I'd use more?
