"Features you and your friends like; and those you'd like to see. I, especially, appreciate the "Preview before post" Feature. Disclosure of Thumbs Liked and Disliked, similar to Facebook's hidden but cursor touch revealed identities would (not only be nice) but would in my view stimulate even livelier conversation, approximating face to face. Overall, chess.com and Gameknot don't even come close to RHP."
Brief window before this eight year old laptop dies on me again. Service later today, I hope. Seems some incidental fog has rolled in on little ghost feet regarding the Facebook Feature in view. Their "Like" is the equivalent of our "Thumbs Up". It communicates a member's objective appreciation for the substance of the post (nothing whatever to do with the individual responsible for the post). FB's Features don't include "Thumbs Downing" as an option. Instead, individuals originally giving the post a "Like" may at any time reverse their decision. "Unlike" then appears in the small box beneath the content. Identities are open handedly shown. Why not? We're talking Friends-to-Friends. It works!
Apparently the site's, now, extraordinarily wealthy founders never considered any such Cloak & Dagger concealment as being in the overall best interest of its membership. The facinating and entertaining Hollywood Movie, "21", explores the founder's brilliant conceptual breakthroughs while at Harvard; his incredibly blunt confrontations with faculty and hostile attorneys; his trial launch of a brand new social networking system; and his own unconventional, somewhat nerdy weird social life within the fraternites.
He, himself, is presently available for routine communication by message. Sent him one, myself, the other day to express my thanks for the site and pleasure with the movie. Believe he's the youngest billionaire plus in the world as we speak. Net of it, why spawn negativity with secrecy? What do we gain by allowing posters the option of hiding? Wouldn't its elimination channel sentiments into the open light of day as posts to busy and enjoyable forum threads? Hope this helps. Sorry for the lengthy post but was pressed for time. (lol)
