On most forums, adding "Likes" for a post turns trolls into successful trolls *but* as this is purely a tech forum, it's safe to enable adding likes for a post, surely?
It saves me having to say thanks when a question is answered, the downside of which is that the answered (and therefore "dead") thread gets bumped right to the top, ahead of unanswered, and therefore more needy, topics.

Thank you for the suggestion. We had the feature at one time and it was not well received. In fact a few people abused the system and it became a cliquish popularity contest. It becomes a management nightmare as well. I don't see that particular system coming back any time soon.
