As camoxide said, a lot of new cars don't have them installed as standard, although they do have the option of purchasing a 'smokers pack' including a lighter and sometimes an ashtray as some cars don't come with ashtrays either.
The lighter in my car has been used a few times by passengers (I make them stand outside as cigarette smoke in a car isn't pleasant). It is useless and disposable lighters which cost a few pence are much better for lighting cigarettes.
I don't really use the socket on my car, but I occasionally use it to power a small handheld vacuum cleaner.
I was talking about this with a friend the other day actually, and I thought exactly the same thing about it being weird that cars include cigarette lighters when society generally does not encourage smoking.
I've never seen someone use the cigarette lighter before, smokers tend to have a lighter on them at all times so there isn't really any need.

Haha no way. What was the post about?
The post wasn't anything out of the ordinary, I'm guessing he broke the TSR house rules another way. Obviously by doing something very serious like sending threatening PM's. Or he/she might have posted a pic/vid of something very offensive and might have got that post deleted and their account permanently banned, the deletion would have lead to them no longer having 2 posts but 1.
