It's certainly possible. Maybe I'm too optimistic, but my hope is the expense to the user up-hubbing results in some restraint. Whether it's credit I've received or paid for, I'll think twice about sharing a cute picture of a cat or up-hubbing a witty but low effort comment.

In a world with no down votes, having a small expense to sharing a link hopefully steers users toward posts they find valuable rather than merely amusing.
