The hole is generally to "cool" the smoke, mix it with cooler air. Many people swear by it, many people think it's detrimental.

Personally, I just use a toothpick and poke a large amount of holes all the way down to the bottom of the bowl.
One thing I have found with Tangiers here in Utah is that if I leave it out for a couple of hours (after it has been acclimated) in the area I am smoking, I have a 100% success rate. I have compared this to unopened freshly packed tangiers and I always have problems if I do not let it sit. But when I do let it sit... goddamn.
