POLL: Do You Want the LIKE Button back?

A potpourri of off-topics.

Do You Want the LIKE Button back?

Yes. If it's good enough for CBC, it's good enough for Castanet. And we're better than them.

No. I don't like anyone. And I'm sure no one likes me.

It's not make or break for me but same as another poster said, it's just simpler to like someone's post then to basically repeat what they just said.

If the 'like' button comes back, please consider having a 'don't like' button to even things up.

Often the "like" button was used by your tribe to like what you said without further explanation.

We all knew who our tribe was by whom liked what. FIVE likes from like minded people? That's your tribe. Usually. You def knew who stood where.

As for the "Don't like" button, that will definitely show you your anti-tribe.

Yes, I miss the like button. Bereft without it.

If someone had trialed the new look for castanet forums, I'd have hit the "don't like" button. :up:
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

I have to admit I actually am missing the “Like button”, until it somehow returns I will be using this instead :up:

Unfortunately this could be a pain in the :cuss:, and add useless sections to threads..... so just bring back something thumbs up and thumbs down.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

The 'like' button was handy for certain times when two or
more posters are at odds on a subject or opposed view.
Then a bit of common ground is found.

That one little 'like' can change all the future encounters by showing a
small opening of mind.

Maybe just me.

I'd like to 'like' a persons post (if warranted) even if in past encounters
they'd prefer to stab me in the eye.

I wouldn't mind it back. Would like it deleted from young kids diction though. Sick of listening them interject the word "like "every second or third word. Wonder what their essays look like?
