I do that as well. I have upvoted quality comments that are in response to less quality comments that I am ideologically more aligned with. I intend to continue to do so.

Thirded. I think most people will realize that this is the case, that just because you share, it doesn't mean you agree.

An older site I was on had a similar system and it worked just fine, though in some instances it made some circles jerk a bit harder.

It would be nice if the highest quality comments appeared in the most chatter feeds. I know if someone shares a lot of low quality comments, I'll be more likely to unfollow them.

I think by the fact that higher quality comments collect more shares regardless, you don't have much to worry about.
