I also use it occasionally if the poster does something which I consider positive in term of the games, like a link to alternative minis, a good idea or comment, etc...

I will admit I'm not above the occasional smackdown for soneone who is unable to present an argument in a calm manner--I would expect the same out of others.  That said, I also like to applaud relevant work such as a fantastic paint scheme or a particularly good idea.

Hello

I cannot say why you are at negative 8 but I can tell you why you are now at negative 9 . The reasons are, 1 your course and insulting tone towards two members of this forum. 2 Being deliberately dismissive of Archer a soldier who would know more about bayonets and body armor than you and wiki combined. 3 Your petty smiting of Dave McGee because he didn,t simply agree with you. IF you want to take slams at respected members of this forum I will sound off on it.

Bill...

  Thanks for the defense.

  I've no issue with our resident Kraut.  We were having a discussion and I've no issue personally with him...  He is simply a direct individual and I appreciate that- even when the subject being commented on is fustrating the hell out of me. :)

  Make nice and give him an appalud.  You did not have to smite the man.  If I was offended, I'd have done it.

please quote me where i had an insulting tone?

i was not aware of that. i never wrote someting like "you are too stupid" or something like that.
perhaps i used bad phrasings sometimes, but i want to state here:

i donīt want to insult someone. if anyone does not like my tone PLEASE let me know.
in 99% it will not be my intention!!!
i will edit out everything that is insulting!


also, i was not aware that i specifically do that to two members!

that may be true.
but it was not only wiki, but a PHD on arrows (link, see thread), several more webpages and a book about medival weapons.

in Aldrien's defence I think people forget that english is not his frist language and that comes
off at being...Very Direct at times. Plus sometimes ones intent is hard to come across in the written word. 
      I never thought badly of Aldrien. In fact anytime he thought he was outline he went out of his way to say sorry.

  For the record my grandmother speaks very broken english and I know how hard it is for her at times to get ideas across or understand others. Let alone to write it down.

The only problems I have with the whole smite system is that they dont go away. Its like a bad rep. Once you get it, no matter what else you do, someone or thing is always there to remind you. Also if you are going to leave a smite or applaud you should have to at least leave a brief comment or have your name logged so that it can open a discussion one way or another.

That's why I like it-because now I'm a bad boy and chicks dig bad boys so now I can go cruizin' down the street with my wifi laptop showin' off my bad karma and women will flock to it like a babe magnet.

Or not.

Veez, you go with your bad self!  Chicks always dig guys with sleek, top-shelf laptops. The bad karma, on the other hand, gives you a come-hither look and a smile.  Which leads to a faster heart rate and a great sense of well being and ego.

In the end, its all about getting the chicks. ;D ;D
