It's a standard rule that we have across all sites. It's basically to prevent piling on or groupthink from occurring.

You’re a forum treasure Scott, but hard to figure out. I’ve seen the ‘not in politics’ mentioned about a dozen times since likes went active.

Maybe we should only have likes in politics. That could fix everything.

I love the way you said it Trevor. That's the best way to put it without insulting the guy. Let's just call him an enigma.

Civil rights? You gonna call the ACLU because you can't "like" in a particular forum?

Look, I really do my best to keep a cool head and maintain an even keel around here, but let me just say, are you kidding me?! This post is all sorts of ridiculous. And if you didn't know that, that's even more all sorts of ridiculous. And if you did know that before you posted it, that's pretty much the worst. I've got no patience for disingenuous interactions there. I guess I'll just have to hope you honestly didn't know how ridiculous this question is.

Can a mod close this thread now?!

Oh, wait.
