I'm not suggesting it so that posters can feel validated, I'm suggesting it so that it can be seen how popular a request is. It would be useful to Larian, assuming they read requests and suggestions. Otherwise, it's hard to tell what is a highly desired feature versus what is a feature desired by only handful of the most prolific posters. It's a pretty common feature on forums like this. I can quote and write "+1" or "I agree", but I usually don't bother and I doubt others do much either. Seems weird when I have nothing further to say, plus it doesn't actually gather the information in one easy to see place, you'd have to read the whole thread and count how many people are liking the idea, which I doubt Larian has someone doing.
