In response to this new trend (cough @Sheldon cough): this is unlikely to change in the 1.x series now that v2 has been announced. When comments (for reports and profile posts) were made, they were done so with a design flaw. They weren't made a content type which seriously handicaps them. You can't add a like handler to them, you can't add permissions to them directly (the comment related permissions are actually connected to profile posts, not comments), you couldn't add an attachment handler even if you wanted to, you can't add a reporthandler, searchhandler, anything really.

I would like to see comment likes - it makes sense now statuses have become more visible and, it seems, are getting more activity. I'm seeing more conversations happening on profile statuses now and the ability to like the comments posted would be a logical step forward.

I agree, I just don't think it's likely. They might be able to patch it in but if they do it'll probably be somewhat rigged which would be very out of character for Kier and Mike.

Thanks for the explanation, @Daniel Hood.

I suspected that we wouldn't get profile comment likes in 1.4 anyway - the devs don't really add anything to a beta release and third point releases are generally for bug fixes only.

It does seem odd that they didn't cater for profile comment likes before, when you can like posts and profile posts it just seems odd to not be able to like comments.

Hopefully this will be added to 2.0. In the mean time, we can give a clear indication to the devs that it's something we really want by liking the suggestion here:

If this is so hard to make, how this tiny add-on does the job?
