Why not offer why you agree though, or disagree? Isn't that what a forum like this is all about?I don't think it's just a case of it being "easier to hit a button" although that sometimes comes into it. But it has practical advantages beyond that. Imagine 20 members wish to register their agreement with a post but have nothing further to add to it. The rating system is a much tidier way of allowing them to do this than each of those members leaving a post in the thread to confirm they agree.
Like I said, click of a button.
