i think they saved it BECAUSE the plane was lost, and probably they keep things for like 24 hrs in case there is some issue with the flight.

since its a method they dont normally use maybe they didnt think to use it until 2 weeks past? and also I saw some mention of them passing the info on March 12th, but maybe that was less exact.

Why are they assuming it was started by the car?

"In fact, the Toronto fire department says the fire didn't originate in the battery, the charging system, the adapter or electrical receptacle since all of those components weren't touched by the fire"

maybe the fire was cause by something in the garage adjacent to the car?

its your site. update it as you like, but dont feed everyone the "we hear you" BS

man up and say we think this is better, and you will too once you start to use it, as has happened anytime hundreds of sites has upgraded.

if people really still dont like it, they'll go somewhere else and someone will make a new website that does what /. used to

there is no dislike option, there is no funny option.

people dont use the "Like" to mean i like that. people have "Like" 'd people dying or getting injured.

commenting on something or "Like"-ing it is not the same as endorsing the product, idea, object, etc.

that being said no one is forced to use facebook, so as long as they are clear about what they do (which they arent) then I think they should be able to use "Likes" in this way. Maybe the best solution is to change "Like" to "Acknowledge"
