We already track the number of likes the first message has received, and it's a title tooltip for the column Kurtz is pointing to. I debated about the raw number of likes in a thread, but that's heavily biased to a long thread. The ratio of likes per post is likely of more value, though it may not be significant; a 0 reply thread would move through the list quickly, and a very long thread would likely be pushed down as I suspect a lot of posts won't have any likes. Tricky...
