I find this annoying very often, and I know lots of other people do as well. I'm not trying to be whiney and complain or anything, but I just dont see the point in disabling the like function for those threads. I heard someone say once that it's to stop people from posting silly things to try to get lots of likes or something, but so what? Why does it matter if someone gets lots of likes from something silly? Maybe I'm just not understanding, but I don't get it.
