Why do I have points?

I would post this elsewhere, but still do not feel comfortable posting under "free thought".

 

I have over 200 points, what does this prove? Better yet, what does this earn me? A freedom from brussul sprouts and indulgence into cotton candy or something else?

 

What do points prove?

I asked to be banned, so I was banned.

They don't really mean

They don't really mean anything.
I imagine that they're a measure of how much you have posted, but even that's a bit iffy. For creating a thread you get two points, even if you've written a 4,000 word essay that challenges all the important questions and leads you to a nobel prize. Any replies to this thread will be worth four points, including the "Lol! Good points!" one-liners.

I don't think they're meant to be taken too seriously. Smiling

It occured to me that there

It occured to me that there isn't really any point to the points, which lead me to believe that if there is no point in getting points, then there probably isn't any point in making them either.

A fallacious thought, but an interesting one nonetheless.

Dear sir, I beg most heartily for your pardon.  When I made that post, had I know that you were to come along, manifest my errors, and produce such an overwhelming response; I can tell you that no post would have been made at all.  Rest assured that your stunning discovery of the lack of value in the post will be a cause of some vexation for me for some days to come.  This has all been a most astonishing reversal of fate for me.

Why thank you kind sir, I did leave a deliberate error of my own

"get's rewarded with points"

Which should have been

 "are rewarded with points"

One can only assume that you spotted this, but where far to polite to openly notice this fo-par, for which I heartily thank you Smiling

I think I read somewhere

I think I read somewhere that once you hit 2000 points you automatically become an atheist.

Holy crap, this is the best

Holy crap, this is the best thread in A v. T in a while.  I knocked something off of my dsk at Wave's post above.

More points for me!

(score!) 

I'll fight for a person's right to speak so long as that person will, in return, fight to allow me to challenge their opinions and ridicule them as the content of their ideas merit.

Once again, we see how easy it is for people to make logical errors. In this case, the Rev has mistaken RRS for skee-ball.

It truly is a master plan, no?  Smiling  One minute you're in a post and you're typing about the existence of god and wham! the next post you're refuting your last post!!  Holy crap!

 And Nero and Rev_Devilin - That is honestly the first time I've seen two people have a pissing contest in three different languages.  Way to show off, boys.  

(Of course, if I could have somehow brought something to that table, I would have jumped right in.  I couldn't so I must mock you). :P

Score for me! Another 4

Score for me! Another 4 points!!!

 

It still baffles me why the originator only gets 2 points while the respondents get 4 points?

 Any thoughts?

Seriously, if you get enough points, Nero and the Rev provide free translation services because they are sooooooooooo smart.  (Did that sounds as sarcastic as I intended it to?  I hope so because I am insanely jealous, too, so Jane and I are going to throw spitballs at both of you.  LOL)
