I am extremely sorry guys, that you couldn’t like people’s comments without using The modern WordPress.com or notifications. I have decided to re-enable comment likes as I like them far more than I like the Substitute for it.
The reason I used Windows Paint to cover up Gravatar and Name is to hide personal information or content the commenter may not want you to see.
If you have used that substitute, then go like the comments you used the substitute to write. Comment likes were disabled for a long time.
