This right here. I would also like to see slashdot or stackexchange like comment ranking instead of raw numbers that beg for pandering. For reference slashdot rates posts 1-5 on different scales (funny, insightful etc), stackexchange uses upvotes but accounts track medals visibly.

Reddit caught major shit for obfuscating vote counts, and I don't see much harm in people pandering or circlejerking for upvoats since they are essentially meaningless. Staying transparent about how many liked/diskliked your comment does however make it easier to tell when you're being brigaded.

Perhaps to help pay the bills, they could even have a feature for subscription users that lets them see the individual usernames of those who up or downvoated them?
