Bad Idea, there's no need for it. If you try to implement it like Reddit you would need to change the way threads are created and viewed. If you make it like facebook, then it just provides a pointless feature. There's no need to see how many people agree or disagree with a post. If you agree strongly you should engage in the conversation

We don’t fundamentally agree with this idea, as it breaks the paradigm of our forums and makes it more technically complicated (aka slower) to query the list of most recent conversations. We believe posts should be “bumped” only when new content is posted. Having them mysteriously move up without new content would be confusing. Preventing abuse would be hard. However, we’ll leave this suggestion open to see if it garners additional votes and comments.

Loading all posts onto the page at once hinders overall site performance. There are other options for avoiding paging and we can explore those further if this suggestion gathers more votes.
