If they take away the report link and in place, bring back the Like Baton to reduce modulation issues: will this be a step forward taken for the future and advancement of a digital sport in cyberspace?
The Report button protects everyone from the dark forces and must always stay. That is non negotiable.

There is nothing like the feeling of smashing down on that Report button.

They just introduced a Like button on a photography forum, I guess a lot of comments about photos are pretty banal but it does mean fewer conversations.

I suspect the good natured citizens of the said forum do not cr@p on each other’s photos all day long, whereas in these ‘ere parts donnybrook is all the rage!

Actually is some code involved to do a LIKE. If you have a SDK, you can see the code that generates the reactions. Could be causing the server to churn a little since it has to track / report the reactions. Anyway, it was not there with the old forum S/W and people lived with it. Life is transient and subject to change. [/sarcasm] I want my LIKE back :happydevil: but in the overall scheme of issues, it really does not matter. [/end sarcasm]

Among other things, yep.

It's an aptitude. :)

But as far as message boards go, there's a ton to be gleaned beyond inspiration for writing.

I go all in on whatever I do, so I like to maximize every experience.
Yes, I do think you got it. Sometimes I feel your writing is a bit ambiguous (giving my honest opinion here) but that can be intentional. There were times in the past where I had to read some of your posts 2/3 times to get the gist of it and I felt you're making me work.

That's good. I do enjoy the idea of maximizing every experience. I take it that would true in your relationships as well.

I suspect some of that comes down to preferred style of writing. A lot of my very favorite writers communicate in layers. All manner of nuance, irony, and "misdirection."

You may be one for more conventional prose.

For me, more can be done with "layered" language.

I'm sorry if it felt labored for you, though.

Oh, no worries. I like the layers. There's more mystery to it. I don't have any preference, however. It's what catches my eyes or keeps me engaged. It can be something very simple or complicated as long as it keeps me hooked.

But if I were to answer any question, I need to understand the question fully and perhaps, that's where I struggled a bit with you in the past. But as I said, no worries. It kept my brain engaged and I enjoyed it.

Ah, I see.

Re bolded, you must be referring to various thread concepts...?

I often tend toward the abstract. And those are usually by design. I don't care either way whether folks take them or leave them, so it's liberating in a sense.

And amusing to see how they're interpreted sometimes. :)

Whatever I've come across in the past. Mind you, I am not here a lot. In any case, I figured just as much that it was a deliberate design. Something that NN tends to do at times but not necessarily with threads but in his replies.

I bet the interpretations are amusing especially when some are brave enough to admit they didn't understand a thing about your thread post. :)

I do wonder though why some choose to be abstract. I really dig abstract paintings even though I do not always understand those but I am very drawn to them.

It wouldn’t hurt anybody if it came back. Would it?
Was that wise?
How do you know it wouldn't hurt humanity and its progress? You may think how a tiny portion of humanity such as TTW can hurt the whole of humanity? Mind you, everything is connected and social media now is the biggest platform for communication.

The reason I liked the button is probably the reason it was banned.

If a whole host of people liked posts that were attacking you, then you knew who to respond to.

It functions also, therefore, as a bullying device and the site does have a youngish clientele so there are good reasons to ban it.

The sociolect of most groups appears odd, but it's only the ones belonging to those outside the elite that tend to get defined as 'defective' and therefore parodied.

A lot of the humour of the original Monty Python stems from parodying upper class speech patterns and behaviours, which is of course the class that they were rebelling against at the time.

Was at a restaurant earlier today and the two guys behind me were talking using "like" every other word.
Couldn't help thinking about this thread.



While we may not get over our withdrawal of Like from this forum, this article can help you getting rid of the unwanted Like in your daily conversation.
