even when the reputation points were around i didn't see the point of limiting likes tbh. i guess it kind of gives them more value since they're limited? but it's annoying for when i wanna acknowledge someone's post but i don't have anything to add on to it and i'm all out of likes.
So, I don't know how much you are aware of the recent Doomworld changes, but we recently converted from a 90's-style software, to the sleek & modern forums you see around you. The whole likes-and-reputation system was built into the new software, but a lot of people didn't like it because reputation based on likes was not a good metric. People like Skillsaw and Stewboy, who contribute a lot to the community, had far lower reputation scores than loudmouth spammers dropping edgy jokes everywhere. I think the limitation was an attempt to curb "like abuse," but it really was more of an annoyance than anything else.
I didn't see much point in limiting likes before, since there wasn't any practical significance attached to the reputation. But now that reputation is gone, I'd really like to see the limitation removed. Just as you said, dropping a like is better than filling threads with "Well said!" comments.
