    Er... how would they know they liked it if they can't see it?

    Can I give you $50,000 for a car, and then see what I bought afterwards? lol

    im not sure how this will go over. for years this was one of the verboten hacks on vb.org. not sure it would be any different here.

    Looks more like an "appreciate your effort" link.

    Why was it verboten ?

    You could always UNLIKE it if you didn't like it.
    Maybe the like button would Toggle Spoiler BBCode ?

    Oh sure, I can also ask for a refund on my $50,000 I bought without seeing it first... I mean if it turns out I didn't like it.

    Just seems completely counter-intuitive in my opinion... "You must like this in order to see what it is. But you can always unlike it afterwards if you decided you didn't actually like it."

    How about just like it if you like it (after you've seen it, so you have something to actually base your liking it on)?

    the 'lockdown' hack was forbidden because of its strong association with warez boards.
    any lockdown-type hack (or 'hosting' hack for that matter) would likely draw the attention of k.a.m., so id ask them about it before spending time working on a public release.
