Post Scoring or Ranking - like

Is there any notion to add post rankings or scoring? When there is a good post or reply and you don't want to add anything more to it than a simple kudos, it would be nice to have a scoring or ranking feature. Sort of like what Digg does with their post/stories. Maybe Digg has cornered the market on this type of tech, but it would be fantastic, in my eyes, to have a similar feature on CH. I love the feature to digg up or digg down comments, posts, or stories w/o having to post an additional message.

  1. I'm a big fan of digg, but I think part of the reason it works so well there is that the content is generated by third-party sources. Here, users generate the content.

    I think there would have to be a huge cultural shift for this site to go to this kind of system, which could lead to hurt feelings.
