In a long thread, it would be useful to know which posts contain useful information or insights. A flag that let's people recommend those posts would be useful. I see no value in the Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down system, especially the Thumbs Down, because we don't know the reason for the rating.

What's "worth reading" to one is not "worth reading" to another.  I mean, most would rate "Harry Potter" as more "worth reading" than "Tale of Two Cities", so what information does that give you if a "Harry Potter" post gets way more votes than a "Tale of Two Cities" post?
