Do all the things like ++ or -- rants, post your own rants, comment on others' rants and build your customized dev avatarSign Up
Root5820735dYeah. It's annoying.
Curious, how are you inferring the intent behind the behavior?
CaptainRant201935d@SortOfTested A ++ immediately followed by the comment itself. I infer it from previous experience with same behavior on other social media websites.
Another factor is congruence between the ++ and the original comment that's being ++'d. A negative or nearly meaningless comment shouldn't get a ++. It's like a code smell - something is fishy. It's like in that movie The Imitation Game, where Alan notices that a German officer and a female alliance officer always end their messages with a specific pattern.
