This is incorrect. Firstly, I don't ever make the decision to remove or add any feature. That is up to the site owners. Secondly, there is no Like button because the mod system used on older version of phpBB has been completely scrapped in favor of a a new extensions framework. This is for the most part a major improvement, but at least as of the time the site was updated, the Like button had not been ported to the new extension system; I have not checked recently. There were other extensions that served somewhat similar purposes which could be modified, but since the Like button received very little use previously, it was decided that the work involved was not warranted. Maybe this thread will convince Migs otherwise, although with only 30 people having even bothered to vote either way after 3 days, i don't see a huge amount of interest.
Also, Alexandra seems to have a short memory. As I posted on the thread he linked to :

Thanks Alexandra, for finding the issue and for tracking down the phpbb SQL escape function, which saved me considerable time and effort.
