It's reasonable that someone may end up liking many posts quickly.
It's not reasonable that someone may like 100 posts within a minute.

Tested on XenForo 1.1.5 without any addons enabled.

A reasonable throttle should be added to prevent something like...
Code:
use warnings;
use strict;

use LWP::UserAgent;

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
$ua->timeout(10);
$ua->agent('SpammerBot/1.0');
$ua->max_redirect(0);

my $xf_path = 'http://xenforo.deb.vm/';
my $xf_session = '5422ff207bb42d1afc5f289cfbe37f09';
my $xf_token = '136462,1372048715,b45f5397626599cadfcfe566ed4f00e5efa9f955'; # valid for 24 hours(?), session agnostic

$ua->default_header(
    'Cookie' => 'xf_session=' . $xf_session
);

my %params;
$params{'_xfToken'} = $xf_token;

my $like_target = 'posts'; # posts, profile-posts
my $post_id     = 1;
my $max_post_id = 100;
my $step = 10; # update interval
my $pass = 0;
my $total = 0;

my $max_post_id_length = length($max_post_id);
my $step_length = length($step);
my $progress = "Progress: [ %".$max_post_id_length."d / %".$max_post_id_length."d ] Pass: [ %".$step_length."d / %".$step_length."d ]\n";

while($post_id++ < $max_post_id) {
    my $response = $ua->post($xf_path . $like_target . '/' . $post_id . '/like', \%params);

    $total++;
    if ($response->code == '303') { # "See other" redirect assumes success
        $pass++;
    }

    if ($post_id % $step == 0 || $post_id == $max_post_id) {
        printf($progress, $post_id, $max_post_id, $pass, $total);
        $pass = 0;
        $total = 0;
    }
}
