   There is no need to track them.

   GitHub is a social network so it's natural for them to add "likes".

   That message was rather bad in my not so humble opinion -- it was
just "I want my +1 button" without any argument. Your message is much
better as it have arguments. See, the absence of the button work!

   We're proposing and *discussing* things here not "likes" each other.
Write your arguments or be silent.
