Having a 'like' function for posts seems to me a very negative move for Bird Forum. It's not that kind of site, and shouldn't be. What is the supposed point of this feature? In what way is it supposed to make the site better for general users? Why is a 'thumbs-up' sign with the names of users who have 'liked' a post thought to be a good thing? It makes the site less pleasant for me - why are we supposed to judge others' posts? And it will make me think less of those who decide to 'like' some posts for reasons I can't fathom.
