I like the new feature to "like" comments. But do they have to be hearts? I mean... really...

I like the hearts. If I remember my '80's video game rules correctly, if I collect enough I'll get an extra life.

I had to like it just to see. That is pretty bad - I LIKE the comment, I'm not in love with it. A thumbs up would be fine, a smiley would be better but still pretty bad.

EDIT: No offense, Jerry, but I had to unlike it just to make that heart go away. I'm sure you understand.

You didn't "unlike" it. You "unloved" it. But none of that hurts as much as you getting me name wrong.

I'm just kidding. I don't want hearts under my comments anyway.

Yes, I am also insecure of my masculinity. Please fix this immediately.

It has nothing to do with any insecurities. It has to do with a usable function that, in my opinion, people won't fully utilize because it looks silly. I think the image would be better suited as a baseball.

Tis the season to be jolly.
Can people here find yet another thing to complain about (see random observation thread)?

It is a random observation more than a complaint. In hindsight, I should have just emailed Brock. The hearts are just... ... ... weird.

Hearts measured your life in many 80's games. I believe you're thinking of coins. Or rings. Or green mushrooms.

How about a little Fonzie head for a like and maybe a little Ralph Malph head for a dislike? If you're neutral you could use the Big Al head.

If you had just emailed we would have missed out on this fun thread, plus you would have missed out on having your name changed to Jerry. (Sorry about that.)

Mauer for Like. Butera for Dislike. (The Mauer half probably won't work for a lot of people here, either.)

If you guys don't quit your whining, I'm going to change it to an animated GIF of Drew Butera.

Pretty sure this is the only time I have and will "heart" a comment on this website in 2012.
