What's the best way to "like" part of a post?

(Drew) #1

Liking shows you agree with a post, saving you the trouble of posting a duplicate and clogging up the topic. But what if you only like part of a post? Someone might say something that I really agree with, but in the same post say something I extremely disagree with. I don’t want to like the post and make it seem as if I also agree with the portion I disagree, so what should I do?

Normally I just quote the part I do like and then say I agree with it, and now other people who only agreed with that part can like my post to show their support for that bit instead of liking a post that contains something they strongly disagree with. But is there a better way to do this? I’m still posting something that’s a duplicate of existing content in the thread.

This is covered in many existing topics, search for annotate or annotations.

I suggest replying if your :heart: is so nuanced on a particular post. Then you quote the bits you like and explain why you like them.
