Huh. I haven't seen the anti-kudos comments anywhere, although it doesn't surprise me. Oh fandom, why so much wank? I agree with what you said. I love the kudos and think that they are valuable. The reaction to the implementation in my dwircle has been all positive.

Kudos to you for this post!

I haven't seen any wank, and I certainly hope this post doesn't start any.

But I have seen comments from people who don't like kudos. Not many, but a few.

Those comments seems to be to be based in the belief that kudos somehow take away from comments that they'd otherwise get, and which they would appreciate more.

And that makes me feel bad because I would leave comments if I could. And I'd hate to have anyone think that my kudos aren't heartfelt or meaningful.

I love the kudos because it is an opportunity to offer appreciation for a fic that I'm not going to comment on but enjoyed. I'll still comment when so inspired but kudos are definitely not taking away from my potential comments. Perhaps that is not true for the people who don't like the kudos. Perhaps they are replacing their commenting with kudos. *shrugs* I don't know. My behavior with commenting hasn't changed. I just now have a new tool to show my appreciation.
