I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

My likes given/received are almost even. If I really like something, whether it be a well informed answer, or a funny way to look at things- i'll like it.

The like would depend on the thread.

-In a topic a bit more serious and on topic, a post that has been well constructed with good advice will get the "like".

-Maybe someone has already answered the posters question in a better way then I could.

-Someone gave a clever remark that I thought was funny, in a fun thread.

Really, there is no system to what I will "like" since (most) threads vary in content.

For likes recieved, it seems that some of the likes have been for informative posts, while others were for a funny comment. Again, all depends on what was said in what thread.

Also I like despite of the poster or anything related to it, content makes the thing to me.

I've 2 reasons to like:

1) Posts that are very well written and with which I agree
2) Posts that contain funny or otherwise good points that make me on good mood.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I was thinking about this while hauling hay from the stack to the barn, fire wood from the barn to the house, rubbish from the house to the fire pile, then empty run back to the hay pile, repeat, until here is enough of everything in the right places

Another reason I use likes, I tend to use them as encouragement sometimes, we all know that it is difficult to decide peoples tone just from the written word, well I think I use the likes as by way of a smile and a nod, maybe it will encourage someone to make more posts if they are new.

Hey, may I hire you, GH? I definitely wouldn't mind to have someone around helping moving the hay around, as well as firewood!
