    Evelyn (Super Pig) and I was discussing this yesterday. I believe we have some who cruise thru post doing smite drive byes, or dropping smite bombs! I don't think Ken intended for it to work the way it is?

    I have been trying to stop smiting, but I can't. Even though my Mom told me I would go blind if I did not stop smiting, it is hard to stop when everybody else is doing it. Besides, what is so wrong about it if nobody is getting hurt? If God did not want us to smite, he would not have given us index fingers. At least I stopped smiting myself, so that is a start. I just want to be normal. Help me
     
  7. Ha ha Mike we forgive you ;D

    Yes, I have been smited quite a bit here too and I can't understand why. I have been nothing but nice, courteous, and helpful in my posts, and posted a couple of TERF posts. Still I get smited. Just got two more smites this morning alone. ???

    I think I figured it out though. It is either my name (someone one here does not like pigs even when they're super ;D) or it is my picture. Maybe a girl with a big gun scares some of you guys? ;)

    Maybe I am taking the smites too serious, but I believe they are here for a reason. Most likely the intend was to separate the jerk posts from the good ones. I have not posted any jerk posts. Even Ken accumulated three smites so far. Ken of all people. He created this FREE forum for US. Why on earth would anyone smite him for that ???

    Like EJ said, I think someone here is very happy with the trigger finger on the smite button just because he or she can. I have become more cautious on posting my thoughts and advice on this forum and started to send private messages instead.

    Most likely I will get smited a lot for getting this off my chest, but so be it. No matter how nice one is, someone will always be there to kick them just to be spiteful :-\

    I feel better now :)

    Evelyn,
    I checked out your website and it took me back to my original theory in why you're getting hit! It's Jealousy!

    As I mentioned elsewhere, the Karma system is currently in an experimental stage. After a few weeks of use, we will re-evaluate and see how it works out. We can then decide if it is creating more problems and bad feelings, or if it is a useful or entertaining feature of the Forum. At that point, I will either keep the Karma system in place, modify it, or delete it.

    I figure they are only nerf smites ... you know, just in play.
    We DO act like a bunch of squabbling kids most of the time, after all! ;D

    Dont't worry about it mike, it would be nice if we could only use the smite button once a month instead of once an hour. It is entertaining!

    Piggy, I told you it was jealousy. I see I'm not the only one that thought that. LOL
    Drive-by smiters, that's a good one. Oh, heck, I'll probably get smited now. LOL
