Why are like limits in place?

So I was scrolling through the best IF photos thread.
Scroll scroll like scroll like scroll like scroll like scroll scroll


Three minutes later
scroll like like scroll like like
Window pops up
“You have reached your like limit for the day. Please wait 23 hours”
sigh
ARRRRGGGGGG
I have 984 more great photo posts to like!!! Arrrggggg!!
The actual question: Why are they in place?
Also, what purpose do they serve? Why were they out into the forum?
I have too much love to share. Urrrgggghhhh
I am now letting the community loose in the reply section.

They mean that people don’t abuse likes. It means that likes are only gained for the most relevant and well-executed material.
