One day … one day there will come the most awesomest thing evaaar.
And you won’t like it. You just won’t. What will everyone think for you not likining it? I don’t know. But I’ll guess the’ll will be angry for your blasphemy, for your neglect of beuty, for your insatiable lust.
Because if everything is liked then the value of a like in general is reduced, but your likes in particular are completely devalued.
What happens when you read a post that you genuinely like? How do you show your appreciation of it?
That’s a great question. I was wondering the same thing once when I heard of this system by which data processing machines were able to communicate using telephone cables to send and receive binary data, which could then be displayed to humans as text. Apparently this text formed something called “words”, which were used in “sentences” and “paragraphs” to make “posts” on a “forum”, which in turn was used to express opinions and kill time.
I have no idea how anyone would express their like of a post without the like button, but I think the point of what Ark is doing is just that: to kill time.
I’m not sure how this happened, but I seem to have acquired 6% of @Arkenbrien’s daily likes. Since I have them, I was wondering how many people would be willing to trade me some of Ark’s likes for my own likes? I figure if I gain another 45%, then I’ll have the controlling majority on Ark’s “like” stock. At which point, I’ll be able to vote on a new direction for Ark’s “like” policy. If anyone would like to invest in such an endeavor, please let me know. Together, we can create greater value for all future likes.
Nope. Malicious means there is an intent to do harm. Unless Ark wants to like everything in order to somehow harm something or someone, his actions aren’t malicious.
The like button is of questionable value anyway. I really don’t understand why it’s here.
I don’t know. Maybe you reply to it, saying something like “That was an awesome post! Here, have some candy!” Or hell, send a PM.
Ok. If it’s really just there as a spam trap, what damage, exactly, is done to it if people are less than discriminating about using it? And if a post is really, really good, isn’t it getting the same generic, lazy button click as something that was just slightly above the point of tedium doing the poster a major disservice?
