I think that there are times where some people hug a post because they genuinely want to hug the poster, and some people will dislike it and hug that very same post.

It's often hard to tell - a single post could have 10 hugs. 8 are genuine and loving; 2 are from people who disagree or dislike the post.

That's why I think the hug button is stupid. You don't know what it means and too many people read into it and get offended.

Everyone knows what the Like button means.

Interesting. What’s the “type” of person who responds. I generally answer every survey and poll.
I find it fun and interesting.

I'm not sure. I just read that one sentence x% of people refuse to answer polls. It was runners foot in an uncle John's. O want to say an older one. So it's an old stat and most likely refers to telephone polls. And such

That is synonymous with an existing option.

True this, but it has a little more grace (and maybe snark on a good day) than "this is ridiculous."

When a post says something that really needed to be said and said it exceptionally well, and either for some reason I don't want to pm the poster to say so, or the writer posted as amother.

I don't use it at all. I don't hug strangers IRL and I won't do it online. If I like your post, or if I don't like your post, there are other ways for me to let you know.

Whenever a poster expresses any form of pain I hug.
Not gonna lie, I’m guilty of using the PA hug probably less than 10 times, followed by a post explaining why. I need to be extremely horrified to do that. Not just disagreeing or even strongly disagreeing, but HORRIFIED!
I’d be more than happy to never do it again and use these instead. Surprised Banging head Punch
If we can all collectively quit it I’m all for it!
