Liking in place of reviews?

This is something that I want to discuss with the members before I spring it on everyone.
A while ago, in our discussion about reviewing, someone mentioned using the Like system. (Information about the Like system can be found
The benefits to using the Like system is that if someone wants to let an author know that they like the story, but have nothing specific to say about the story, they can just click the Like button. The downside is that that really doesn't tell the author if anyone is actually reading their story. Anyone can just come in and click the Like button on every thread here without every reading a thing. (I'm sure there's more pros and cons to this. I just can think of them currently.)
That's why I want to ask the people posting their stories here: Would a "Like" on your story be a good way to gauge readers' interest?
If so, great! I'll announce it and let everyone like to their heart's content. If not, well...you're getting a guide to post constructive comments without needing to know how to fix everything, so...
Now nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody speaks my name
