i dont like it either im afraid. at best i would be for a redo button only in unrated games but i used to lay at another chess site - where i was constantly asked to allow takebacks. out of politeness i always allowed it , but i never asked for them cause i didnt believe in them myself...
once i denied a takeback and the guy got really stroppy and said he would take his maximum 5 or 10 minutes allowed per move to make his remaining moves keeping me up dead late at night. it wasnt correspondance like here. of course this sort of problem specifically might not arise here, it could certainly breed ill-feeling between opponents if refused
i vote no. sorry.
edit - just to let you know i stayed up late and made a point of kicking his ass (for those of you who wondered)
