I agree, somewhat. I think if you are going to have a Like button, there should also be a Dislike button. Give everybody a voice.

Well said. I belong to a handful of forums and this has the most crap on it by magnitudes. Too bad we cannot block threads.

Here is the thing! MODS. It would be used more if you have a thumbs up icon instead of the damn (I lve you) heart which is sorta gay for a mans boating forum if you know what I mean,no offense to any of my gay friends here or anywhere.

Not only that, but they send you PM every time someone liked a post you wrote, which is even more annoying since you have to go into you mailbox box to see that it was just that someone liked your post and not an actual PM from a member.

Nah, the "like " turns into an "unlike", no hearts. I'm using Chrome so maybe that's got something to do with it.

I don't care if there is a "like" button or not, but if THAT is all it takes to rock your "masculinity"?

If you don't, like..., like the like button than
you can always, like...., ignore it.

Or you can whine like a little girl. Your choice.

For all those that didn't get the memo. That "pm" feature can be turned off just for the "Likes", and leaves the normal, meaningful "pm's" alone.

They were in many many of the threads, someone often said "there needs to be a like button here".


No I don't have a link, and no I am not going to search for one.

Now you know I'm a complete computer idiot. There's a thread here somewhere that shows you exactly how todo that. I'm not at home right now, typing on a new I-pad at the Apple Store, bride getting her repaired.

If I remember right Garett, a mod posted the how to.

Who really cares? I don't pay any attention to the likes so doesn't bother me a bit. I would have never asked for a LIKE button but there isn't anything I can do about it on this site.
