Discourage people from making "+1" replies in this forum

That's what the upvote button is for.

(I know people are just showing how much they support an idea. It's not the end of the world if a bunch of "+1"/"+2"s end up in a thread. But, they just take up space and take attention away from the real discussion.)

Perhaps they could introduce a real numerical counter to show the support instead of vague graphs. Something like LaunchPad's "This bug affects you and 500 users" or Google Code's "4 people starred this issue". Such a numeric display really shows how important people think the idea is with respect to other ideas.

@chris.hancock - I see what you did there!

@egon.geerardyn - You can see an exact count if you mouse over the graph, I believe

Some of the really "+1"-heavy posts were around before they instigated the voting buttons. I think that's one reason we have them.

Those +1 can really clutter a thread and discourage useful discussion. Someone should just go ahead and weed those out.

I see it as a way to bump an idea a bit, since the RTM team is lacking answering on any of the ideas
