There is already a badge to let users know accepting answers is a good thing:

ScholarScholar — Asked a question and accepted an answer.

This is awarded immediately after first accepting an answer.

The accept rate isn't to punish or praise users (note it isn't listed on a user profileuser profile), but to guide answerers who feel it's important when deciding if they should answer in the first place.

I initially thought nagging users about it could be useful, and that it would be somewhat useful to decide whether I should answer. Now I think it's detrimental noise and flag those comments when purely unconstructive and negative.

I sometimes look at accept rate out of curiosity, but it doesn't affect my decision to answer or not – that's dominated by the "quality" of that particular question combined with how much the issue interests me.
