Liking Comments in Active Rain and in baseball

I've got some thoughts in my head lately about blogging, and baseball.  Over the next few days, I'll share some.  However, I never post as much as I'd like, and so, I'll start with a topic that's been hot on Active Rain lately, that being "Liking Comments".

We've discussed if an author should like his/her posts & comments.
We've discussed point allocation for likes.

We've discussed serial likers.

 

Now, let's move to baseball.  Another passion for me, besides real estate, is Washigton Nationals baseball.  It simply allows/forces me to get my head out of real estate for 6-7 months a year, and I follow the team  the players during the off-season. 

They have a blog forum, and yes, blog posters can and do make comments.

And yes, comments can be liked.

There are no points, which removes that similarity, but the twist is that guests can leave comments.  This allows for all sorts of name-calling and shouting when others believe that people are coming onto the site anonymously as guests to "like" their comments.

 

From a 20,000 foot level, it's funny to observe. And to see similarities in repeat posters, those who add value or those who just say "go nats" to show they are there or "good post" to get the points here.

I just noticed that we can "Like" posts.  I was wondering when ActiveRain was going to add this feature, and now it is here.  Interesting.

Good morning Claude. Hard for me to make the stretch from AR and baseball, but I can understand your thought process.

Thank you for commenting on my post.

Hi Claude, I guess everyone has to develop their own strategy to all this new "liking" business.  There is no prescribed or wrong way.

Well, like or not like is not the name of the game. In order to move forward fast, you need to do everything: posting blogs, read others, comments, likes, following, contests, referrals.

I'll like each of your comments.  I'm hoping eventually you get points for that.  At the moment, you get good vibes from me...

Claude Labbe and you also pick up more "followers", as you cannot tag those you do not follow.    You commented on one of my posts, and enjoy yours!
