It may seem significant in the moment but I really don't think it matters very much.
    well that's your opinion. personally I happen to think it's up there with eden's tidal wave of human pollution.

    anyways I'd be fine with axing the thank you button, despite its clear upsides. I agree with third that it's worth thinking about at least.

    It's kind of an empty gesture so I'm with third but in the end it probably won't change much. Certainly won't make people talk more
    Took a rest stop that wasn't on the schedule

    I'm for eliminating it. I'm also for eliminating the whole board, but realistically we can settle with the like function.

    You know you're allowed to just, like, not use it?

    wait this probably sounds more tepid that I intended. I was trying to say I'm for it.
