a 'like' button

First off I must say to the lovely people that keep this forum running, I can't imagine how much work it takes and I'm sure at times it's a thankless task... I as an occasional contributor and lurker value this place and really appreciate it... I'm sure there are many like me.

I was thinking that sometimes I'd like to acknowledge 'thumbs up' or like what people say in threads without necessarily providing a written response (I know this isn't Facebook).

Particularly when you just want to applaud somebody's perspective. I also think that it might neutralise some of the bickering and behind-screen anxiety that can drain the energy from good discussions.

Just a thought ... probably a bad one what do you think?

a 'like' button

Yes some of us had suggested this ages ago.

Thumbs up, and thumbs down.

Also, the ability to tag people in posts.

Svp

I shot a guy once for giving me the out on the roads. In retrospect, i suppose he was just trying to thumb a ride since his bicycle had obviously broken down on the side. He was one of those well dressed young guys, you know, traveling religious types you see trying to convert people to this or that.

I guess it looked as though he'd flipped us the bird, in our defense, we'd been on a 3 or 4 day bender and it was 9 am in the morning........we were just trying to get home from the nude bar(s).

He'll probably have a limp for the rest of his days. If i were to see him again i wouldn't hesitate to shoot him in the other leg so he won't feel so special. By most accounts he got off kind of lucky.

Yes there is... but that's irrelevant and not the point I was making.

Yes to a thumbs up. No to a thumbs down.

Also, I'm still begging for a tagging feature. I think people would be WAY more active on this site if they new people were talking to them.
