Liking by user ID rather than IP?

I've just finished modifying this plugin to my needs and the greatest issue I found was that Likes were stored on an IP basis. I'd much rather use it on a User ID basis (and disable liking for guests), so I made this edit.

I also made a change whereby if a user clicks the like link after having already liked it, it effectively "unlikes" the post. I thought this was deeply needed for my site and can imagine others probably wanting it too.

Just a suggestion anyway - great work otherwise!
