Now that the Elon case is once again roaring its ugly face, I just wonder about this whole “like”ing of articles/Facebook statuses. There should be extra words to show expression, like the whole emoticon thing, but it could be something actually linguistic.
I’ll suggest new terms that have icons surrounding them, maybe even traffic signals of some sort; stop, go, yield, merge, no entry!, intersection, pedestrian crossing…
well, something like that.
But I certainly won’t “like” the fact that the case has been substantiated; I will only say stop.
