On most forums you can now select a "Question" tab, which allows up and down voting for replies. Those viewing the thread can sort replies by votes to see the most popular replies first. Votes are anonymous, so don't worry about the poster whining about your vote.

Ill add this to other forums, if it seems useful ...

This is a good idea. People have been talking about a more reddit-ish option with the upvotes/downvotes, and this gives people the option now.

Be careful what you wish for! :) I think this can be fun, but it sometimes makes Reddit pretty ugly.

There's that interesting effect someone did a dissertation on once. It's something like anything past 100k members and a sub tends to get really vitriolic and the content gets worse as people just repost for Karma.

Have we gotten there on the 'Yard, yet? I'm a whore for likes... so probably.

Holy crap this makes me feel old and out of date. I can't even imagine this is talking about. Isn't it enough that I remember my password?
I need fewer features, if possible. I can't find the question tab, although I see a little question mark appended to the first post when I have the forum view open.
