    I've read a lot of posts about the Like button, with arguments for and against.
    Same goes for the Dislike button which may or may not make an appearance.

    I think we're missing an opportunity though. There should be a whole array of buttons to convey all kinds of meanings.

    I'm going to kick off with a button which means neither like nor dislike.
    It could mean, yes, no, maybe, possibly, never, but I can't actually specify which.
    It could even mean all of them at different points in time.
    It's a very non-committal button as I may change my opinion in the future depending on what happens.

    I'm going to call it The Politician Button :D

    What others can we add?

    A Me Too button. But unless you see everyone's uses name, it's meaningless.
    I wouldn't mind a dislike or a ftw, ftl.

    I think we need a generic button to be assigned at the Admin's discretion.

    I would use it for different things on different sites, including a "that sucks" kind of option on one site :p

    How about a button that when clicked prompts you to type in a short message?
    This way everyone is happy.

    Isn't that the point of a reply function? :p

    This is the same problem with the "Thanks" button.
    The point isn't to make a reply, it's to state something, just like any other button, eg "Like".

    How about a "go to hell button", I'm sure Michael and I would use it on each other a lot, it does not have to be public, just a button to work Michael over with, it could have a one use a day limitation placed on it.

    I vote for a "Who the hell is Michael?" button.

    The "IB Button", hit that little baby and all your likes get deleted, the thread you hit it in suddenly develops a whole lot of bugs, and your IQ drops dramatically ....

    He thinks by referring to me as "Michael" all the time he is outing me or something. But I've never been in, so I can't be outed.

    Hello, I'm Michael and I'm an alcoholic.
