New metafiltrist seeks enlightenment on manners and the proper use of the little [+]. Is the 'favourites' function more a social bookmark used to collate useful/good posts and comments (as in, "yeah that's cool"), or a tick given as silent applause for wit, cleverness, commendable profanity or helpfulness (as in, "yeah that's right")? Are there pre-existing categories of favouriteness, or is it done ad-hoc?
Is it possible to offend by favouriting wrong, and are there favourity gaucheries I should know about?
