Since Technical and myself haven't done anything to get smitted several times recently is it possible to find out which user is doing it so we can kick his ass or at least have that user name warned or banned to stop abusing the board.  Thank you.

Hi Culpeper,

I hope you do get your wish, but I would guess that both applauders and smiters should be able do so in anonimity  :-\ Otherwise we would need a list of who is applauding who as well.  ???

Better still (IMHO) is do away with the system altogether.. it'll stop all the re-occurring arguments.

Why not set up a poll.. I haven't figured how it works yet  ;D

In the meantime, have a 'k'

It's not the act of getting negative marks.  Technical and I have noticed someone returning to the board several times in a day to smite.  That's abuse.  It went away for a while after that last time I had a public tantrum on the board.

Yes but LOT's of users return several times a day (me being one and I haven't smited you  :'( ) . Your actually implying that you know who it is  ???  ???  ???

That's abuse.

This is only my personal opinion, but that's a difficult point. It could be said that it is any user's right to 'app' or 'smi', as the present system is... kind of 'freedom of speech'.. but I agree that it is NOT NICE.

Let's start a new scheme to get the 'smiter' .. we ALL reverse the system and give one and other 'smi' for an 'app' and an 'app' for a 'smi' . I'm happy to be 'negative krmed'  ;D

Well, how about someone returning to the board to smite the same person 10 times in one day.  It takes at least 10 hours to do that.  I consider that abuse.  No, we don't have any idea who it is.  But it goes beyond simple peer review. :o

The only regret I have about bringing this whole thing out in the open is that the person now get's the attention he so dearly needs :-\  That's a "win" in his corner.

You right though.  I rephrase the use of the word "abuse" to "not being very nice." :'(

Culpeper,

I really don't know. I can't see either you or Technical posting anything that would make 10 people smite you once in a day  :-\ . So if you are getting these smites you must be right that it is one individual.

You can probably guess I'm not worried either way about the system, but I certainly don't see anything as a 'win' for any one individual who may be responsible.. it just goes to show him (or her!) as a total moron .. watch those smites heading my way now.. he he.

Karma applaud says 'thank you' to those who offer help on this forum.  Karma smite makes no sense to me and I've never used it.  I voted in the poll to modify.

As for the person who's been vigorously hitting the smite button -- probably a Norton supporter.   ;D

I agree with Dave (and others I probably missed) -- applauding is another way of saying thanks, in addition of course to the words themselves.

Just in the relatively short time I've been here, I've seen some newcomers supposedly looking for help, but who wouldn't listen to a word of advice, and who had nothing good to say about avast.  They're probably the only ones worth smiting -- but why bother?  They probably won't stick around here anyway.

And just for the record, in my usual style I totally missed the "modify" choice in the poll and simply voted to keep the existing system.  Can I use my head injury as an excuse?  :-[  ;D
