    Why no 'Like' button on threads

    Is there a reason I can't just 'like' a comment? where's that button?

    It would require a custom mod to our vBulletin 4 software, and at this point we are not willing to do that for anything that's not essential to keep the Forum running.

    "Like" buttons ala FarceBook are used to collect personal data. This data is then applied to create a targeted advertisement data base for the "Like" button clicker..

    So now ya know,

    if there were a "like" or "dislike" button here it would not be used to collect personal data it would just be used to show someone liked or disliked a post or image on one of the image sharing pages.
    not every like or dislike button has a nefarious objective.

    LFF is not FarceBook... personal data collection IS profitable for things like.. FarceBook..


    Place and intent applies here,

    I realize that, but having a like button on this website has nothing to do with a like button on Facebook or other entities on the internet, I never understand why anyone would draw that parallel because they have nothing to do with one another .

    If you like somehing post and say so. Same with not liking it - but be a bit smarter and say why.
