Compared to the alternatives, this plugin is build with current technologies and offers handful features. Of course there is always place for improvement, with just a few additions this plugin holds up to premium (read bloated garbage) plugins using third party services.

I had a different Like button installed but users were required to be logged in to a WordPress.com account, so no one could vote as most people don't have a .com account unless they are developing a .com blog. I hadn't realized that until someone wrote and asked how to log in. I searched the Plugins and found this nice and easy plugin. It even has a Dislike button if you want to activate it. Now people are liking our posts. Thanks for creating this!
