Yes, Knuckle again makes some valid points in his last post, personally, I don't have any issue or problem and view it as a bit of fun as Gambo does, however, I can see the validity of some of the points about smiting people anonymously.
I think all things considered, it probably is open a little to abuse so on those grounds, I have voted for it to be removed. (I think some members possibly have taken it more seriously perhaps than it was intended!)  :)

My point about fun is:

Where is the fun if it's annonyomous? How can it be funny?

Did you never play Rat-a-Tat Ginger when you were a kid then??  :o ;D ;D



The very fact that we are discussing our opinions on the subject right now, is adding to the forum, by encouraging communication.  ;)

Aha! But it's not funny for the person who's door is being knocked on a 2 in  the morning, is it?

I ams aying this light heartedly, but your comment does highlight the affect on the victim.

Ohh it all sounds very serious now doesn't it? ;D

my only thoughts are we that have been members since the start do understand the applaud==smite,but to
newer members or just people looking to joining might be put of or feel picked on even when its mostly done
in jest,we had the situation the other week when the young chap left maybe he took the 80 smites serious ?
who knows. we all want the best for this forum so it can only be for the best when we have open discussions
on the running of it,
people always like a bit of back patting so maybe just an appreciation button.
