[bf1942] TKPunish broke?

I believe the functionality is that users are ALWAYS asked whether or 
not they want to forgive. IF  sv.tkPunishByDefault is set and the user 
does not respond, the TKer is punished ("by default"). If it is not set, 
they are not punished. So its more about what happens if the subject of 
the TK does not press charges, so to speak - the game assumes they're 
guilty and smites them.

We're finding a lot of people are always punishing so from a social 
perspective I don't think it makes any difference whether this is on or 
off :)
