I thought the OP and others in this thread were talking about just having the possibility of a (truncated) list of likers at the bottom of each post.
Yes, OP did talk about "like" without linking it to some reputation metric as I've seen at work, for example, on MP but expected if FT was to upgrade that it would follow along similiar lines and not go part of the way with a "like" icon only.
