Automatic like when you comment on an article

Hi,

Has anyone noticed that when you add a comment to an article, it has a like immediately? I am wondering if this was intentionally and would like to know how this helps the user experience if it was.

I wanted to report it as a bug but I can't decide which category it falls under.

Yep. This happens. I Googled it to find out why and came here :)

See this other post: it's probably a cryptic way from the dev.to creators to promote self-love 😄 Fun, but I'd have appreciated an explainer of that in a hover over the like button or something:

We liked this comment for you, because we hope you like your own comments"

This is a bit confusing. Everywhere else it's bad practice to like your own stuff.
