I voted no because I can’t really see the point in a ‘like’ feature. If you like a post why not take the trouble to tell the poster that you like it? You could even go crazy and tell him why you like it. You never know, you might even end up having a conversation.

Sometimes I don’t reply to posts because I don’t really have much to say, and posting just to say I like it seems pointless. On other forums, people have been accused of posting such things just to increase their post count, which makes me even more wary of posting just to say “I agree”.

I would be interested to hear why other people have voted no, though.

And do we really want a league table of the most liked posts (which will inevitably become a league table of the most liked posters)?

I hadn’t really noticed that part of the question. Personally, I don’t see the value of a list of most liked posts, but I wouldn’t strongly object to one, either.
