Sorry Mac ;D  You got your poll up first.  I'll delete mine.

I would like to see the one hour limit changed to once every 24 hours.  In other words, a user can only applaude or smite another user once a day instead of once an hour.

Let just say Brett is the smiter (hypothetically):

JULES
          There's a passage I got memorized, seems appropriate for this
          situation: Ezekiel 25:17.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities
of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the
name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of
darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost
children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and
furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.
And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

The two men EMPTY their guns at the same time on the sitting BRETT.  ;D

The Avast! Team and all of the forum members are here to help anyone who's got a question or problem.  I think the karma system is a nice way to say "thank you" to those offering advice and I've done my share of clicking on "applaud".  I don't see the need for "smite" at all and I've never used it.

I voted to modify -- keep karma (with applaud) and get rid of "smite".

I agree on that too   ;D
for the info, Wilders security forums uses an 'applaud' link only.but no 'smite' link.
Dave, you got yourself a karma.  ;)

I voted "NO" (for the moment)

If the abuse keeps happening, i think there must be a solution found :

-disable the Karma stuff or disable the "smite button".

Amazing to see how low some people can go...although losing karma is not the end of the world, on the otherhand Karma does indicates that your being helpfull and gives a push in the back to keep supporting AVAST in this forum.

sad, really...

Waldo, I agree with you! :)
Most everyone that posts here is giving help--even me in what not to do to your computer ;D
When advice is freely and warmly given, there should be a karma...for the willingness to share expertise and knowledge.
To me, a smite is stabbing someone in the back for no apparent reason or a stupid reason...jealousy, difference of opinion, or just plain meanness. It serves no useful purpose. JMO
