LOL. Smile | :)

There are good reasons to use them on occasion.

I've used them when I'm keeping multiple tables of objects in memory, that can be indexed and accessed from different points. I've had this come up in multi-threaded program where multi-threads are processing data at different entry points.

In this case there is no clear owner of the object, so there's no clear way to determine when an object is out of scope and can be safely deleted.
