Actually I do not understand what all the hoopla is about from either side. I suppose you now do?
Points to me are as useless as recording the numer of posts I make, save that I need them to purchase extra space for private messages. Some obviously
spend them for other perks offered and that is fine, but, from I gather, the cummulative points may be used in this regard, so I fail to understand
the issue from a points distribution view the importance to differentiate between the three venues.
This brings me back to the why, a purely administrative adjunct obviously, especially as to the unanswered rationale behind the administrative change.
In short, the answer is not forthcoming because of the reaper of the benefit. Further, I see now that politics is in full play where it is being
defended as having been voted in by the members. Well, how many of the 40,000 supposed members, or even the 500 or so at best daily membership count
actually voted this change in, and since only a positive vote was counted, how can that possibly be proffered as a membership backed amendment?
Reading these posts brings back memories of my studying the imposition of taxes, and how over time people just acquiesced and accepted every one that
came down the pike.
