Completely disable "likes"?

So we've already made many template modifications to remove the "like" functionality from our installation and that has worked fine. The problem is that Tapatalk has a like button built-in to the app. Because of this, users are able to like posts via the app, giving the receiving user a notification, which confuses them since they can't actually see the like. What we'd like is to just have the like method return without doing anything like inserting the item into the DB or notifying the user.

Can this be achieved?
Thanks. I'll look into that. If anybody has already done this, I wouldn't mind a hint or examples as I'm still quite new to XF development ;)
