Curious, with a lot of the posts that get many likes often being some sort of jokes/digs/etc. in one sense or another or something else of similar nature--and those often being just some of the first posts simply because they are seen more often by being on the first page--does that often really say that much one way or another when it comes to the actual particulars of an article or thread?
It really does.
I have immediately noticed that I can't find what I want to find in a thread.
For instance on the Bluetooth Tracker thingy thread - I would like to go to it and see if the thing I want to know about is being talked about and "liked". I do not want to read posts about how expensive the new iPhone is - and there has been a lot of this type of pollution in all threads in recent years. The most liked filter helped - at least a bit.
Now that we have subjective icon thingies for liking and disliking, this type of sort could lose some of it's power I suppose, but if you get to a thread with 10+ pages and you really want to just get to the point, you have no way to do it right now without the "most liked" filter. "most reactions" could be good, and "most liked" and "most disliked" could be good too.
I'm on this website a LOT because I wish to stay on top of things in the Apple world - so right at the moment I feel like I have zero traction on getting what I need from here - I really dread having to weed through zillions of posts.
