If this function is added, does it mean that posters can no longer say 'support' and 'no support?'
Typing support or no support means you are expressing a personal opinion. On the other hand, there are threads that do not need support or no support.
I don't see a problem with anybody typing out their support as well, but I would think you should at least use the tool along with it so your vote gets counted in the tool, if there's a counter that is..
Your opinions here can affect us all. Please post for the better
