Please add your +1 by hitting the up arrow next to the comment.

Now that we don't see comment scores, that isn't effective for publicly voicing agreement.

Votes do influence the ranking. And is "publicly voicing agreement" really more important than a usable comment page?

Put the two together and its a decent argument for bring back displaying up votes on comments.

Influence isn't the same as that is for an entire conversation thread. What if an initial comment gets very few up votes but a response to it gets tons? they aren't ranked independently of one another.

Why not? I don't learn anything from seeing the username of whoever posted "+1".

I also upvoted it. I was EXTRA agreeing with it.
