In a discussion driven by opinions (besides facts), as the emoji
discussion is, "+1" carries more than one bit of information
as it is to perceived in conjunction with the name of the sender.
Scanning through a large bunch of lenghty mails while being time
constrained, a "+1" is perceived faster than any text like "I agree to
this" (at least by me).
Like an emoticon.
