    And I don't mean similar to bombing. Here' is how the conversation went. I have changed the names to protect the innocent, and accused guilty:

    Rayone: "It's soooooooo annoying!"
    Me: (okay I didn't change my own name) "What?"
    Rayone: "Shumaine literally likes every post I make!"
    Me: "That's a bad thing?"
    Rayone: "Twelve new notifications, Shumaine likes this!"
    Me: (Thinking silently) Hmm, that's better than Shumaine disliking his posts.

    I dunno, is there some sort of etiquette policy regarding post likes?

    I like what makes me laugh or when someone stands up to an ***hole.

    I wish there was a dislike button for the ***holes.

    Someone liking every post by a person seems like flirting, it has happened to me and it gives me an uneasy feeling.

    Should also include “like Instagram, get rid of likes all together.”

    It’s proven that craving “likes” is linked to narcissism.

    If too many likes is a burden (#firstworldproblems) maybe posting less would take care of your problem. ;)

    Same. If you make me laugh out loud you’re usually getting a like.

    Can you like your own posts? Now that would be fun. Start liking myself.

    It would be more fun if you could like other people’s likes.

    Where's the multiple likes for a single post option? I would have liked the OPs post, like, maybe a 1000 times.

    Would that be, um, like, an ALU (Aviation Like Unit)?
    Like, I'm just askin'

    I would never get the wrong idea about you, @Zeldman . You seem as straight as uncooked spaghetti, mate.

    Or just put everyone that likes you on "ignore".

    No need for a dislike button, that's what ignore is for.

    To me, the ignore feature is an idea that rates right up there with individually wrapped tortilla chips.

    Someone recently talked about how good looking they are...I think it was in the Fitbit thread...but if it was, it's gone now. Wasn't you was it?

    Start saying that type of stuff and I'm confident that those of a different persuasion might start liking every post you make!

    just sayin'...

    :)

    Originally, when I saw this thread I was thinking that it was an overuse of the “like” this or that and that we would be discussing something “like” I dunno, flour bombing, or pumpkin bombing, or some other form of aviation dart game. This is a huge disappointment.

    What a great idea...it will help solve bing eating if you have to unwrap each chip.

    Nope, that wasn't me. If I told y'all how good looking I was you wouldn't believe me. :D

    Are those names really real names? Must be California names.

    Rayone Shumaine is arguably one of the best running backs in the league.

    I remember reading something that when you get “likes” your brain releases dopamine, so you feel happy. Makes sense, everyone likes to feel liked.

    Of course the narcissist takes that to a different level. Ironically, my mother is a narcissist and doesn’t use Facebook, but I think that’s mostly because she doesn’t do computers well.

    Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.
