Well, this place is getting a little arse about, with quantity prevailing hugely over quality.
There are dozens of useless posts being posted, it's sometimes harder to weed them out when scanning Topics of interest, and the frequency of new topic commencements is increasing as a result of new members wanting purported benefits like the Really Above Top Secret Forum, while the value of the topics themselves is declining. That is not a sweeping generalization, but anyone who takes the time to read every Topic will have to agree.
Therein lies a dilemma for a potential quality poster like yourself, stick to one bloody name! Did you ask William about the possibility of accruing your points?
I would personally rather see that Forum restricted on grounds other than just rapidly accumulated points, but with so much tweaking and disruption (mostly necessary it seems) going on the voice of the loyal "customer" has become largely lost, and the content quality of some segments appears to be in freefall spiral for a while.
