Thanks very much to the posters who have provided such amusing messages. Sometimes I laughed so hard I cried.

I am a bit puzzled, however. Today when I tried to "like" a post, I again got a message telling me I must spread "likes" around before the system would accept my attempt to "like" a message from that poster. Earlier I read that Adam changed the system, and I misunderstood that the situation I encountered today had been corrected.

If I visited more areas of Pentaxforums, it would decrease the likelihood (how about that pun?) that I would consecutively "like" two posts from one person.

This is not a huge deal, as I can and sometimes do send personal messages to people whose photographs and messages I admire. But sometimes I neglect to do that.

With tongue in cheek, I propose that Pentaxforums add the following to indicate degrees of "like" and to perhaps increase the odds that the system will accept attempts to praise people's posts:
Really, really like
Not just like, but love
Envy

Please remember, I wrote that my tongue is in cheek.

I hope everyone has a great remainder of the week.

And I hope you "like" this message.

I like being able to dislike messages. I was disappointed when they dropped that feature at DPR. I'd like to see it added here, though I doubt management would agree.

smf, I think you get that message when you try to like a post from the same person you "liked" last.

I would like you, but I got the message, "Must spread some Reputation around before liking Jean Poitiers again."

Hmm, if you're still getting that message then my changes must have not been changed or something like that. Will be able to check after the weekend- until then, have a happy valentines day!
