How about this button?
Often the funny button is also used when a post invoked that involuntary swallow that has the offended poster, prompting them to bite their knuckle, feigning a laugh to clear their throat, while straining to crack a grin, in hope of making the fact that they have no way of refuting what you just said, anything bit painfully obvious. The liberals here use it for just this purpose quite often.
I want a "Nothing But A Good Time" button...
I kinda' like calling it the "End Of The World Spell"... Now just press control, alt, delete...
I think that being allowed to post Images's and Gif's serves the purpose nicely. As long as not overused..it adds a dimension to this forum that I like.

Some deviants would sit there looking at the clock, wait for the hour to click over and PM the target telling them to "expect another beating" in 13 minutes"...
So any system that leads to lynchings isn't a good thing. BUT -- I'm a big fan PERSONALLY of having some way to disapprove of trolling and people who are not really adding anything to the discussions. So this idea in the OP is interesting. PERSONALLY - I believe that having a button to hit reduces the urge to violate the rules and go after folks personally. But TALLYING all that up and making it a "rating" -- probably will never happen again on USMB because of the abuse that we saw...
