Default Re: Preflop Limp-re-raising trouble

Is it ever proper to limp-reraise preflop?

To answer your question definitively, I can tell you with absolute authority, that I do not know.

Are there situations that the limp reraise is appropriate or should I continue avoiding that play like the plague?

Here's my opinion, without any real base of knowledge:

1) I think it's probably appropriate in the game of poker, somewhere.

2) It would be uncommon at Party's 2/4 game, but would be more prevalent at Paradise's 5/10 to 8/16 or at Poker Room's 2/4 to 3/6.

3) If it is ever the appropriate play, I'm not sure how much EV is lost by raising outright, but probably not much.

Edit: Also more prevalent during the day than the evening.
