Should this site have a Like Button for forum posts?

Critic, I have another idea to make this already great site more interactive. We should have a like button for the threads (similar to Facebook or Youtube). That way, people would know if you're really listening to their comments. And just a like button, not a dislike button for the sake of sensitive people here.

What do you think? Should we have one?

I wouldn't want that, especially if it is integrated with facebook.    If people like a post, they can post a comment saying its a good post, and even say why it is.   I don't see why we need this.   I feel stuff like that lowers the quality of the discussion.

Right now I rent out this message board service so I don't have a heck of a lot of control over it.  However, I am open to the idea of migrating to a new system if it's worthwhile.

I actually changed web hosts recently.  Now my site is being run on a server maintained by the RPG Critic.  He might be able to help me set something up.

Don't see the benefit myself, there aren't so many posts that the average person can't keep up with them all.
