How can I comment on a post without viewing it?
I recently commented on a post by one of my friends here, after which I clicked the Like button. Something seemed to attract my attention so I looked a little closer at the Views and Likes for the post.
The post was actually showing 0 Views and 1 Like. Surely this should be impossible because I cannot comment on a post and like it without ever opening it in the first place.
I have heard that some people have had more Likes than Views, which they have assumed is due to people using an ad blocker. This is certainly not the case in this instance because I would never use such a utility, which would effecti8vely remove any earning potential for the site.
I do appreciate that it may not register the view immediately, but submitting a comment refreshes the page and clicking the Like button refreshes it again. I totally fail to comprehend what hyas happened.
