We have removed the option to react to posts. There have been moderation issues stemming from this option that have led to this decision.

Thank you for your understanding,

How in blazes did folks manage to communicate on these boards prior to the introduction of likes in 2015? :oops:
"Like" is a crutch. The message should stand its own and speak for itself.
No need for "Like" to validate.
It was also being used in evil passive-aggressive ways as posters were "Liking" anti-Soureshs posts. :(

"React" was a new feature. Even if "React" caused moderation issues (don't see how it possibly could) how does that justify removing the "Like" feature that has been around for years with no problems.
:unsure:

I requested the Mods to remove the "Like" button as it was childish and overused.
It is for the best. :(
Feel free to use this this instead.

I was going to Like this ... but it could cause a Dumb and Dumber endless loop. o_O

@Shroud pays me to Like his posts ... I would like the likes to be returned.

I don't like my final reaction total. Can I at least like 4 more things so I can get to a nicer, more appealing number like 1,120 instead of 1,116?

Please reinstate @TW Staff

I realize that. Still don't get the explanation. How does "React" cause moderation issues.
Somebody complained about being "Reacted" to? :unsure:
If a post is offensive, action needs to be taken against the poster. But what about the guys cheering him on with Likes? They need to be disciplined too and that must have been the issue.

The like button (without the recently added "react" option) has been successfully used for years, no?

Like button is for groupies and bandwagon hoppers.

Posters like me with original content who can think for themselves don't do Likes.
