I make it a practice to 'like' the comments on my blogs. And, I 'like' the blogs and the comments on the blogs that I read. This is a good way to pay it forward with other members.

In this context a 'like' is much like a 'thank you' rather than an endorsement of the blog or comment. Until it is changed again, members receive points for the 'likes' you leave.

Every one. If you comment on my blog you get a like. That is the best reward I can give. I think everyone should do this.

Roy Kelley  I like your idea of 'liking" as a way of saying thank you and not necessarily an endorsement. 

Ron & Alexandra Seigel it's interesting seeing how the "like" feature is viewed and used. 

Thanks to everyone for you answers.  It's interesting to see how the "like" feature is being used.

I "like" as a thank you and an acknowledgement that I've read their comment.... if I don't agree with the comment, I may respond to it, but often I don't have enough time to respond to every one of the comments....

Yes, I do ''like'' every comments as an acknowledgment that I have read it and as thanks for taking time to visit my blog. I think it is a habit I have from FB.

Spread those 10 points the the greatest generosity possible.

Since it is increasing difficult to send personal acknowledgments, the 'like' is a good alternative to let the commenter know you appreciate the visit.

If it was a drive by comment, there exists a possibility it will be overlooked.

I've been noticing that I get a "like" when I leave a comment.  I hadn't thought about doing it unless the comment really strikes me as relevant and interesting.
