As Nick posted above that system of applying helpful/unhelpful to posts was tried a few years back and was found to not work as many users abused it and it did not function the way it was intended.
One never knows though, the system might changes again but that is up to the powers that be
And rather than indulge in a slanging match, it would be nice to just click on an "Unhelpful" button to stop some (hypothetical) poster from advising you to (hypothetically) "Get a Dell!" to solve your Mac problems.
Pity anyone who sees a Windows computer as a solution to any problem rather than feel annoyed by them.
Otherwise, the vanity point system itself invites a number of problems, including motivating some to post far more often than they should. It would be better to do away with it entirely.
