Woke up to discover this:
Really, I have nothing to do with any dumb “Like” button here. Don’t encourage this stupid trend towards making everything into a game by clicking “Like” everywhere. It’s OK in YouTube, but not here.

I think you will regret this,
You know, you can turn “Likes” off if you don’t, erm, LIKE them. Actually I like being able to “LIke” your posts, but I suppose I could just comment and say “Like.” Same difference.
On the other hand, the thing I really hate is “Like Spam.” I seem to get a lot of this. Readers I don’t know or recognize, who have user/blog names that seem spammy. I suspect these “Likes” are just attempts to get noticed. I wish I could remove those.
Anyway, I’m surprised no one “Liked” this post yet…
WordPress’s Dashboard is something I’ve searched to find turning off Likes. I can’t find it. Where is it?
I haven’t tried, but it looks like it’s the last option on the Sharing Settings page. At the bottom, select WordPress.com Likes are turned on per post. Then just don’t turn them on…
DOH! I was on that page and missed it. Now all OFF. Tx.
You’re welcome. Nice to know it works!
