    Thanks for the Gravatar Like recommendation. I just switched to self-hosted WordPress and have really missed the like feature of WordPress.com. I installed and activated this plug-in and was disappointed that it only seems to display the Gravatar…unlike the WordPress.com like function, you can’t hover over or click on the Gravatar to see who the person is. If I don’t happen to recognize the Gravatar I can’t reciprocate/visit their blog, etc… Is it supposed to be just a “like counter” with pictures, or is it broken?
