    Have you ever retracted a like?

    Reasons for retracting likes:
    1. Meant to click quote button
    2. Poster changed their original comment
    3. Misread comment
    4. Revenge against the poster for something they did in a different thread.
    5. Because you want be a tool/douche/bitch/troll
    6. Other

    I've only retracted likes for the first reason. It's rare that I'll mistakenly click "Like This" instead "Quote" but it happens from time to time.

    Yes, a few times for number 2. Like a post, then they Edit it to say something entirely different.

    As for me, I did it for reason 1. and 3., sometimes I'm just too tired and misread things or press the wrong button. x.x

    It's pretty sad tho when you get a notification saying that someone liked your post, then you go to check and said post has no likes... So painful. T:T

    Never retracted a like before, just because it's too much of a hassle to click dislike.

    Besides, why is this topic in the Eof?

    I unlike people's posts when they said something I thought made sense, and then a few posts later, someone else says something that makes much more sense, so I unlike the previous post.
