You get points taken away if you've been naughty and haven't conformed to the clearly stated rules and regulations of this board. The most common
reason for getting points taken away is by cussing at people and making personal attacks, mostly because those things don't add anything of value to
the particular discussion you're contributing to. Another point-loser is only adding a one-line "right on!" comment, or putting in a punchline.
But you don't lose too many points for these, really, especially after you've been here a while and accumulated a lot of points.
The key, I guess, is to not get too emotionally involved with any discussion. Try to understand that people have a right to their stupid opinions,
and they probably won't change them no matter how loud you yell at them. And vice-versa.
