As much as i like the idea, there are a couple of issues with it

1. Unless its schwag then there are hardly ever enough comments on the news stories to make it worthwhile

2. The thing i hate most about those kinda of ratings systems are when you scroll to the bottom you get a list of a few good and bad ones, but then have to go find "normal" comments because its mostly just the comments on both ends of the extreme scale which make the "most voted" lists
