    While using my girlfriend's smart phone, I've twice accidently posted 'dislikes' when I was trying to post 'likes', either from my clumsy fingers or the over sensitive touch screen.
    Sorry to the guys concerned!

    In any case - how come this button? Would anybody actually use it?

    I have used it once. That dubious honour went to Terry for subjecting us to another one of his really bad jokes :lol: Sorry mate! :)

    I had a couple of people "dislike" a few of my posts but I can't for the life of me figure out what they disliked. Personally, the "dislike" button seems a bit of a waste of time. Just because someone disagrees with another person shouldn't be cause to "dislike" a post...and the mods are pretty responsive in sorting out those who go beyond established behavioural norms. I say get rid of the "dislike" button!

    I think Andy has a point, using it for Terry's jokes... (His hat must have more travel miles than a Boeing 747!) :)

    The 'Dislike' button is there for the sole purpose of marking any and all posts which include mention of, or, heaven forbid, a photo of a Wil .... one of those things!
