    I think @SeekingAlpha needs to do away with the whole "like" thing on the comments; it only prompts some people to seek validation.

    • billddrummer: I miss the 'dislike' button. Now, it's like the sports competitions where everyone gets a trophy, whether they place first or last.

    • x oil -field: Why not READ only it's ''sticky'' & a neutral tag I can bush giving person validation that I READ post but don't have to like/dislike yes?

    • x oil -field: Or simply read* and or recommend* together side by side now the person can have & receive double validation ''sticky gratisfaction.'' Y

    • realornot: How about using stars rating?
      4/30/12
    • billddrummer: That would work if you could give out negative stars for obviously clueless content.
