The weekly Likes Per Comment champion was boringly predictable - Mike always won by a large margin.

The Mike Effect (IOW: Bullshit, Cheating, Throne Droning, Like-Raking, Well-Deserving) 
refers to the phenomenon where comments posted by Mike Petriello will get lots of likes, often far more than anyone else would have gotten had they posted a similar comment themselves.

An offered explanation for this phenomenon is that Mike is the administrator, and people treat him as royalty.
