Sooo......no offense to people with "high" reaction score, but what exactly is this for? I see people looking for reaction just because? Some replying just to get attention? Do ya'll get some kind of swag? Asking for a friend...

Reacting to a post is a way to acknowledge that you support, agree, or appreciate a post that someone made.

Perhaps it’s because you share their opinion, or agree with their conclusion, or appreciate their information, or they made you laugh and you’re glad they’re here.

Every time you “like” or otherwise “react” to a specific post, other people see that reaction, and the person who made the post has their profile reaction score increased by one.

Not only is this a “game theory” way of encouraging people to post meaningful replies to increase their own score, it can also cut down on random chatter of people having to reply to a post just to say they agree with it.

When you see a high reaction score on someone‘s profile, or a specific post, it’s a sign that their peers on the forum approve of their behavior or comments, in one way or another... and it could conceivably be used to help you determine who’s opinion, or which specific post, you should weigh more heavily.

And also, it objectively proves that I’m a better person than everyone else with a lower number than me.

It’s science.

I didn’t even realize this was a thing.
If you do most of your browsing on your phone it is easy to miss as you would have to click on someone's avatar to see it. If you are on a computer it shows under everyone's avatar along with their location, etc.

Something tells me you've yelled at kids for being on your lawn at least once.
Huh? Now I’m intrigued on how this even makes sense ??

What I’m trying to get at is that....I’ve seen people reply just to reply or make a comment to get a “high” reaction score...I’m just trying to filter out the nonsense ??

Well that will be no likes for you my friend ?

No, no kind of swag, at least they haven't given me any yet...

And it's just a number. I guess it could tell you that someone has been around awhile, or maybe that person offers up worthwhile information.. Or maybe they're just funny.

Hell why am I trying to explain this again? Idk, it's just a number...

Now once again, when my reaction score hits 3500,you guys get B&P, now do your thing!

I hate to break it to you, there's no way to filter out the nonsense. That is simply part of the charm of this place.
