When people ask me, why are you so weird, I never know what to say. Then I think, why should I be like this when I can be like ttthhhiiiisss?

It's difficult to say yes or no to that. While it'd be nice it it happened, some members are just reading for fun, and reviewing a piece can ruin it. :P

And sometimes, they can't find anything productive to say. Instead of writing "Great job, keep going!" They keep it blank.

Can't say I blame them, because although the reviewer might be sincere, I'm not sure I would believe such a comment/review. But when the review really needs work, I agree that once read, it should be reviewed :D

I would disagree, since its sometimes hard to review certain works. Sometimes works are just so good all I can do is click like, although I am guilty of avoiding novels due to the sheer size of some of the works. We should get some extra points for reviewing novels.

Definitely can't say no to this question. I think people should review everything that they read; especially if they they think a work is too good to be critiqued. Sometimes writers need to hear the good and the bad and just leaving a review explaining what you liked about their writing would make their day.
True love, in all it’s celestial charm, and
star-crossed ways, only exist in a writer’s
mind, for humans have not yet learned
how to manifest it.

For in everything it is no easy task to find the middle ... anyone can get angry—that is easy—or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy; wherefore goodness is both rare and laudable and noble.
— Aristotle
