    The makes me laugh or makes me smile is a no brainer, that's the money shot.
    Other reasons would include clarifies something not already well explained, makes a courageous attempt to grapple with something, or just warrants support.

    When a debate gets going between two clear sides, I generally don't "like" all the posts I agree with because (I feel) it feeds the argument. I may agree with the content but not the fighting over it.

    Some really good arguments have already been said.
    I will add that this world can be a really sh***ty or even cruel place to live in sometimes. And so to acknowledge a good, interesting, informative or funny post with a simple like which can mean a lot to someone is the least I can do.

    Pretty much all of the above ..... and, when a post mirrors my thoughts.

    I think I'm getting more selective with my likes ... may be episodes of laziness or apathy.
    So, feel honoured if you get a like. :)

    I "like" posts that amuse, inform, or educate me.
    I find lots to "like" here.
    I especially enjoy music/artists/gear that inspire me, or perspectives I had not considered.
    For me, the TDPRI is the international peer group I was seeking.

    If someone takes the time to answer to whatever nonsense i post, i like it. Otherwise, if the post made me think, or if i recognize similar ideas to mine, i like it.

    When I feel it’s appropriate. A very fine gray line that can change with the subject

    I click Like when somebody's post

    * makes me smile

    * conveys an original, interesting thought

    or when it
    * agrees with my sensibilities

    Of course, I have been known to click Like whenever there's gratuitous Japanese nudity involved as well.
    Just sayin'.......

    I like pictures, too, if they give me an endorphin rush.

    I mostly "like" new gear posts. I enjoy celebrating their new stuff with them.

    I also "like" cool comments on said gear.
