I thought the upvote button was removed because the site kept on lagging?

Anyway bad idea. Another thing all you guys are forgetting is that people can up-vote their friends and down-vote their enemies. Kind of the way said earlier, but not for the merits reason.

I'd want thumbs up/down buttons, just to show AG what I think of such comments without saying in my replies "I agree/disagree with X,Y,Z". Thumbs up may affect the karma of the user's comment, but only in large amounts. Thumbs up shouldn't affect the reviews on whether or not he or she gets a merit.

No no, that's a terrible idea. Has anyone read the types of comments there are on Youtube? Everyone's a being thumbs up w***e. Here, it will be the same thing. It would look like this:

iwantthumbsup: thumbs up if you (x)(y)

see? Especially when you get AP for getting thumbs up. It promotes spam. Sorry, but a thumbs up/down system might not work out. :(

I believe the "rewards" for high thumbs up will have to be substantial. If the requirements are high enough, I doubt the user will work to just have a comment faved.
