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 :)

 

Maybe an assumption: at least you will like your own post. :-)

 

That sounds right. Similar to Reddit's behaviour.

 

That's exactly it, you'll notice the heart is filled in on your own comments.

 

It’s doing it to hide the truth, which is that the heart counter is unable to go to zero X-files theme starts playing.
