Should Tony include a way to view who likes your comments and/or specific questions?

No - the anonymity contributes to frankness and openness. Without it, I think we would lose a lot of input.

No, no, no. Sorry, but I do not like this idea. Every time it is presented, I give the same answer.
There is truly no reason to know who exactly likes your comment. If anything, I feel it would cause far more issues. I often like comments in

support of those who are in a debate, without getting directly involved. More often than not - you can take a guess as to who liked your comment based upon who else has commented on your poll and shares similar views. I think it would just result in

I would quit liking at all. It's an invasion of privacy.

people calling one another out for liking others' comments. It's most definitely not a feature I would like to see added. At all. I may be the only one who feels this adamantly about it, but still...

I don't have an issue with the privacy factor, per say, but that's another aspect.

Then again, I guess most of what I cited falls under privacy. So, yeah. haha

I agree. I don't think identifying "likes" would add much and have the potential to cause distraction. Poll vote visibility would likewise add little. You can already look at someone's stats to see if they are a mass downvoter.

Yup... I think what exists in 3.0 (I'm using it currently) is great, and there are plans for additions in the future. I just don't want this being one of them. I see no value.

Kyle you are right. It would create hurt feelings.

I just wanted to see if people were liking their own comments when I debate... :-) I get a notification that they have replied and I view it immediately and it's already liked... I just think it's funny.

Eh, so what if they are? Pretend the first "like" for any comment is irrelevant. I've been in debates with multiple "likes" for the other comments & none for mine. Annoying at first but then I tell myself it's because I'm just that uniquely brill B)
