    The term “vocal fry” bugs me as much as someone doing it

    Boy, I'll say!
    TV and celebrities and vocal fry (which i never heard of because I can't stand TV or celebrities) seem to go hand in hand.

    Canceled my cable like 5 years ago...
    :sherlock:
    Does that make me part of the Cancel Culture?:eek:

    For me, the like button is a way of acknowledging a post without having to post something like: "Nice" "Cool pic" or "I agree". That's how I use it at least.

    Edit:
    An option may be to only have the likes visible to the person receiving them. Maybe that was posted earlier in the thread. I didn't read the entire thing.

    Cool post
    :whistle:

    But yeah.. Most media sites don't allow for a "I don't like".. YouTube being one of the few

    Somebody updates a thread from 1-3 years ago.. well.. I've obviously read that.

    Feel free to dislike this post

    The color options have always been there...it changed for some people due to site upgrades being done...you can change it to whatever you want by clicking on your user name and then going to "preferences" (5th choice down in left column) then click "style"

    We have one thread about folks not liking likes and one thread about folks who like to like themselves! :faint:

    In your signature write that you don’t want folks liking your posts! Settled!

    I used to 'like' a lot of posts...then my thumb got tired because of all of the liking I was doing :hair:

    Now I only hit the 'like' button for posts that have pics attached. Unless there is something I feel is profound that was stated in a post, in which case I will 'like' a text only post.

    Finally got it. The "click name" step is the name at the top of the FHC page. Who knew.
    Instructions need to be trialed by ignorant users. So, when we were developing software programs
    a virgin user group was used to "try out" the program. Kind of like directions for assembling a carb rebuild kit
    FOR THE FIRST TIME.:doh::doh:
