Yeah it seemed strange to me at first too but then I got to thinking about why they would do that and realized it's prob because we have privileges here in the forum (i.e. seniors lounge, redirecting threads, etc) that come with our current level of trust which is based on our activity such as getting and giving likes, posts, replies, yada yada yada
There must be creatives or competitors that try to manipulate their trust level.
I've never been told I've given too many likes btw and the person I know it has happened to, is or was just supporting their thread. Lol just felt the need to put that out there
