My guess would be to differentiate the button from "Like" buttons that are hooked up to Facebook, as this one isn't.

I agree that "Thanks" doesn't really work as it means something completely different from "like." If my above conjecture is correct, I would humbly suggest "enjoy" with a picture of a smiley face for the button - you click on the smiley and it says "SloopJonB and 3 others enjoyed this post."

Not at all - the administrators decided they knew what was best for us and implemented it.

Isn't that Left wing?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Oh brother, this could take a while . . .

You see, the admins overrode the will of the community to exploit us for their own purposes. Follow? Right wing!

b/c there's a high probability that the 'like' feature that was an add-on the the previous version of vbulletin was not rewritten for the latest version of vb3 that we had to upgrade to.
