I'll probably get suspended or kicked off for saying this
IF your biggest problem in life is liking or not liking the "thanks" button, or the lack of a "like" button, or not wanting to be bothered with the effort to quote just the select part of a comment you are responding
to...well then, consider yourself one very lucky person. There are SO many other things to be concerned with that actually warrant this much attention.
It really does take a lot of time to make a small change to any program. Those in charge may find that since we seem to be pretty evenly divided about wanting/not wanting this change, it isn't worth the time and aggravation to rewrite a computer program to make this change. If your overall experience at DC is enjoyable you'll overlook differences. For me, keeping the current way or making a change doesn't make a difference as to whether or DC is my "Happy Place".
In the end, I hope we all accept the way things are around here whether or not they're exactly the way we want them to be or are changed to a different way we may not prefer. In the end it's all about the friendships we've developed and the knowledge we've gained along the way at DC.
Just my 2 cents worth. Hope I haven't offended anyone.
