    can we have a 'like' button?

    So many members post comments that make me laugh and smile, but I don't always have anything to add to a thread, and quoting them 5 pages later is annoying and disrupts the thread's flow.
    Just a thought...

    I don't like. I'm really happy with how uncluttered the threads are. No ads, and no likes are a big plus for me. Not to mention the whole popularity contest that inevitably arises... And I'm a 34 year old, avid FB and Instagrammer btw.

    I also think a "like" button is a terrible idea. It is a discussion forum, not facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. A button does nothing to foster discussion. If you want to like something, just say you like it. Your comment, no matter how simple or verbose could be the start or the part of a lengthy discussion that would otherwise have never happened if we all just clicked a button.

    A "like" button is not going to add anything of substance to the thread.
