Liking Mutable Things

On most silos where people can't edit stuff they've posted, you're liking immutable things. On the #, however, where content owners have complete control over their content, you're liking things that are potentially mutable.

One way to mitigate the problems of liking mutable things (like I do with #) might be to quote the thing you liked along with your like post (Update: Only text is quoted. Images and other media are still served from source).

@sandeepshetty that’s the reason for reply contexts — dealing with content which changes or goes away. If you store the reply/like context then your copy of the data is always the most valuable, most complete. Otherwise it’s the copy shown on the remote site.
