This is old, but having spent the last month or so exploring the comments section of Reddit, I can say for a fact that this would be a terrible idea. Voting up/down things is the worst thing to happen to the internet since something else really bad.
Couldn't agree more... I literally stopped posting and commenting on Reddit because of the mentality that exists on that site. I love Reddit but I can no longer contribute to it, so I just spectate.
I'm new here to this forum but I've totally forgotten the feeling a forum has in comparison to Reddit. The simple click of a button without adding context as to why you dislike something is fucking insane, it generates assholes and gradually causes people to just stop being a part of something that 'use to' be great. Keeping this forum like a true BB is needed IMO to allow for longevity with it's community.
Other than that, I'm excited to be here!
