    When I Receive Likes..

    Simple enough poll. I wondered how others feel about the like system.

    I think the Thanks system was more meaningful.

    Personally, its kinda useful to see if one is "reaching" people. But I wish there was a like and thanks system.

    I give out a lot of likes. If I like something I hit the button.

    Problem is, if something is well said, even if I disagree, gets a like.

    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 like to get "likes". It makes me feel liked, momentarily lifting me from the drab nothingness of my pitiful existance because an anonymous person somewhere in the world liked me enough to give me a meaningful mouseclick. It... chokes me up a bit, brings a tear of gratitude to my eye.

    Then again, when I have composed a half-dozen intellectually stimulating, brilliantly-witty posts, then log in to discover only three pitiful likes, I realize that even my friends have abandoned me to wallow in the muck of my deepening despondence and desperate despair.

    So, yeah. I like to get "likes."

    Considering I'm already getting on the nerves of many here, receiving likes is really warming. I'd rather have a "+" and "-" system though.

    I logged in this morning and found myself with 44 likes, I had an ego orgasm.

    Re: When I Receive Likes..

    Doesn't matter to me one way or the other... if you like my post, fine. If you don't like it, fine. I don't post to be liked... I don't formulate a post to be liked, I don't decide on the content of my post with the desire to be liked... I think about my post according to my values and not based on what someone else may like or even with a pre-conceived notion of what others may think I will post... I am just me - love me or hate me - I really don't care...

    Re: When I Receive Likes..

    I guess I'm one of the few that dislikes the like system. It seems that controversial statements don't get likes and so disincentivize their utterance as compared to the same old crap getting posted over and over again. As such, likes don't matter to me that much.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
