    Being that I use my phone 99% on here, I occasionally have clumsy thumb issues. A few times while scrolling, tap-to-zooming, etc..I've accidentally "liked" a random post, then immediately "unliked" it.

    Does the recipient get a "like" followed by an "unlike" alert? Do "unlikes" remain in the users profile permanently?... or does the "unlike" simply void out the "like"? I feel guilty taking someone's "like" away, even if it's from an accidental key swipe as there's no way to indicate it as such, with the exception of explaining the issue in a follow up post or PMing the member.

    What's the deal? How would the Mods like this sillyness dealt with?

    Without doing due diligence...I believe the unlike simply reverses the "like". No harm, no foul.
