I've run my PTS points down to zero.
In the true spirit of politics, and in reverence of our nation's debt, I want to be in PTS point debt up to my eyeballs. But the store won't let me
spend below zero.
I bought some more upload space with the points.
And added to my u2u quota.
But when I try to keep spending PTS points, no transaction takes place.
I even have collateral, granted it's just other points that have no market value, but isn't that the basis of a government's deficit. I could
probably even get a few members to vouch for my GDP (good decent posts)
, and I'd be willing to show quarterly stats of my production output in
the thread tagging industry, plus other export commodities like my text and images.
I've seen other members with negative points in their box, so I know this can be achieved.
Maybe I'll post a one liner in PTS and see if I get one of the 10 point penalties.
It's worth a try even if it's only -10 points, it could be the start of a neverending spiral into the depth of fiscal irresponsibility.
And that's what politics is all about.
I will search until I find a way to rob Peter to pay Paul.
