Thanks but no thanks.
No offence Sir Admin, but I don't see anything in your explanation as a valid reason for introducing this.
Posters have no idea how many people really like their posts? I doubt guys are losing sleep wondering about this.
Having a tally of how many times someone has said thanks? I don't see the point of this. It's turning us into a girl guides convention. What next, compliment button with room for text? "oh Joel, your left delt tatoo contrasts beautifully with the colour of your eyes".
Sorry General, I might get 20 butt lashes and some solitary confinement, but just my opinion bro.
See how it goes I suppose....just doesn't seem that great to me.
