First you turn "favourite" into "like", then you make "like" do stupid shit, then you have to remove the "like" because it does stupid shit :thounking:

@Gargron Favourite-like has always seems like it's the wrong feature. People never used it for what it presented itself as.

Wondering if Slack-style freeform emoji reactions aren't a lot closer to what people actually want.

I often use the “Likes” more as a bookmark than as an appreciation.

Whit the “Likes” mechanism I tend to write my tweets/toots less in a “open to dialogue” form and more in a “look-who-gets-more-likes game”.

In fact boosting/retweeting something that you appreciate should be enough.

Without the social bias of knowing how many people just boosted/retweeted that content, i feel a little more free and responsible in my boost/retweet choiches.
