    Have you ever clicked "like", when deep in the back of your mind, there lurked even the tiniest hint of reluctance, for whatever reason?

    If you have, were you being dishonest, do you think?

    Not really. Sometimes I forget to 'like' a post because I get busy replying or I get distracted.
    If I agree with a post, I hit the button.

    People "like" posts for different reasons, I think. First, there is the in-your-face like that means, "I agree with what you're saying and want to see more of it." Similar are those who will click "like" in lieu of taking the time to add their own comments. I do that sometimes. Others, including myself, will often click "like" because the post was expressed well, even though I may not agree with it. When someone is new to the forum, I am usually more generous with the "like" button. If someone has posted in the forum for the first time, and it wasn't spam, I will probably "like" it.

    @Ken Anderson "If someone has posted in the forum for the first time, and it wasn't spam, I will probably "like" it."

    Clever. Luring in the unsuspecting, into the chasm......Ha! Just facetious. Seriously, do you "like" all new posters? I wonder how much of a mental hassle it is to run a forum. Can't even imagine. How are you able to set aside some "free-time"?

    I try to, but I'm sure that I miss some.

    I use two monitors. I work on one and keep the forum, Facebook, and Minds open on the other.

    There is an opposite where I may dislike a certain person for good reason but may really like their post. In that case I say nothing.

    To be honest I really do not care for the system, it does promote cliques sometimes.

    I click Like whenever I like what someone has said or liked a picture, song, movie, or book they have shared and sometimes when I am just happy to see someone posting when they haven't been for awhile.:)

    I've got used to the 'like' button now, before I came here, I objected to it
    I like what most people have to say, so I use it but usually put a comment too
