I like the way http://stackoverflow.com/ displays the number of votes in the front page. This way, visitors can quickly conclude which topics are worth reading and which ones aren’t. Furthermore, if the nature of discussion website is about opinions, having counter in front page could help distill which one is the best & which are not favored.
No, not yet. Still think it would be a great feature. Either as a part of the ‘Feature Voting’ plugin or just a simple plugin that adds a button to like the first post of a thread to the front page. Would love to get an idea of how difficult this would be to build
