re: Every comment born with 1 like? VIEW POST


Reddit always has original posters upvote their own comments/posts, though that's with the mindset that upvoting means it contributes to the conversation, and if it wasn't, you wouldn't have made the comment/post. So maybe hearts imply quality posts, and you should always think your posts are of high quality. IIRC the Reddit cofounders said they originally thought it was sad to see 0 points on a comment, so they decided to always start at 1 :)
