I don't think this will come as a surprise to anyone but I'm anti-spanking. It might be a good deterrent to showing right from wrong but that doesn't mean it's right. I wouldn't want my boss at work to slap my face for making a mistake at work nor would I slap my wife's face for forgetting to pay a bill or whatever. I feel that example and conversation fares much better than resorting to physical punishment. I know I'm not going to sway any opinions but to me it is abuse, plain and simple. The fact that it is the only time that physically hitting someone (outside of sport) is acceptable proves it the exact opposite to me.

Does the study postulate on its affect on adults?

The difference between your two examples and spanking young children is that young children are still learning right from wrong and often times lack the ability, at a young age, to know the difference. Of course being smacked by your boss for not having a cover sheet on your TPS report is wrong. You know you made a mistake and a simple talking to will correct that. And if your wife forgets to pay your XBOX Live bill you can just tell her she's a dumbass, no need slap her. Again she can comprehend right and wrong and knows she made a mistake. Young children lack that ability and the startling effect of a mild spanking gets them on the right track. Of course there comes a time when spanking is no longer needed or is not effective, that's when time outs and groundings come into play. I bet you wouldn't like your boss putting you on a time out either. :-b

I'm anti spanking as well. I don't think it's the WORST thing ever. I think Violent spanking is a problem. Like the crazy person in the grocery store belittling and wailing on their childs arse because the child picked up a candy bar.

Totally dude, and when I say spanking I'm talking a firm pat on the rear, like when you give your buddy a highfive. Anything harder than that is just mean, it's not about causing pain it's about the startling reaction a spanking gives.

A smack on the butt is a whole lot less "abuse" than many other things out there. Public ridicule by your peers, pushups until you're so physically broken down you puke (military anyone?), solitary confinement, and the list goes on and on.

Spanking isn't abuse as long as the person giving the spanking isn't out of control (there's a HUGE difference in a spanking and a beating).
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Some people just shouldn't have kids. EXAMPLE:

I was at a Whole Foods (my boycott lasted a whole week) last week. This hot blonde mom who was probably in her early 30's and Obvioulsy LOADED (It's a rich neighborhood whole foods) was being mean as heck to her kids. Her kids were quitely sitting there and she was belittiling the 2 year old for litearlly gooing and gaaing. Then her 4 year old was being quiet and she started to get on her case about something. She was just mean. The worst was that after ordering from the Hot Bar she goes "EWWW EWWW why are my hands greasey!! EWW What is this!! Which one of you did this!" I'm thinking lady you have a 2 year old and a 4 year old behaving fine and you are ordering greasy pizza and you are acting like a child.

Anyways it just made me mad. She probably married rich and just lays on her back and makes babies which she belittles publicly. It made me mad.

I don't know, spanking is still the only occasion where pain is inflicted on a human non-consensually and it's not against the law. I don't see how spanking is above the law no matter how light it is being done. And I don't buy that spanking is the only way to teach right from wrong because I'm absolutely sure that it isn't.
