Existence of a Like Cap?

Hey. I wanted to know why a maximum like cap exists. What is it’s purpose? Is there something wrong with liking too many replies? I keep getting messages that tell me I have ran out of likes and that I have to wait x amount of times before liking another reply.

Liking a person’s post notifies them, so spamming likes is a way to essentially swarm someone with notifications–the purpose of a rate limit for likes is to prevent that kind of thing from happening.


It prevents users from mindlessly liking every post they come across, and helps prevent bots from attempting to like every post on the forum, or every post belonging to a certain user (we’ll catch you if you do this regardless though).


I think the better question to ask here is “Why are you liking over 50 posts in 1 day”
