The "Like" button is down near the bottom of a posting. 

Like Button

I know some folks don't care for it. But, it says, "I read your post. Thanks for putting it up." For me, it's a quick way of showing some appreciation for the time it takes to put a post together. When you hit the Like button, your like shows up in the bottom left of the posting, showing the author that some folks have read and appreciated his post. 

Liked

Then, the software adds another tick to the number of total views for the original topic shown on the forum board,

Total Views

For me, I'm not trying to be impersonal. I'm just saying "Thanks!" There are a lot of postings on these forums. If we all stooped to respond to each posting, there would be a LOT more and it would take a tremendous amount of time. So, we have this way of showing that someone noticed.

So John, are you saying that some people don't like the like button?

How can you not like the like button?

I have to say that I really like the like button!

I also like the like-ee and the like-er, and it is very important that we also like the like-ed to!
