Do others agree?

I agree: sometimes a *Like * seems more appropriate than a *Thanks* and I don't tend to use the thanks button when I would have "Liked" something.

-If it works.

Also:
Cars that were lethal in a crash, car seats that cooked your legs if you were in shorts,....

As for youth culture, you see the odd punk around, but you never see psychobillies (something I used to see a lot of in the 80s). But a lot of youth youth culture is far less tribal than it used to be, and so you don't get those distinctions quite as much.

I just use it in either case. It's only what the word is on the button.
Some forums have Thanks, some have Like.
One I used to go on had a vote up or down thing that was unpopular.
