    If you were staff you would know the top 10 members with the most likes.

    I found the ability being turned on by default a little annoying, as I think it's important for people to know when a post was edited. Fixing information, adding replies, and letting people see when something was actually last updated are all uses, and having to uncheck that on each edit was annoying and I often missed it.

    It's like the FBI. If you want to be in it, they never call you.

    It's also like being President of the Imperial Galactic Government.

    Such a person's job is not to wield power, but to draw attention away from it. It is well known that those people who want to rule people are those least suited to do it. Anyone capable of being elected President should on no account be allowed to do the job. This has caused a succession of Presidents who so much enjoy the fun and palaver of being in power that they never really notice that they're not.
