I genuinely have trouble imagining being someone who cares about what numbers appear next to my name, it's meaningless to me. I've read some really interesting stuff on here, in amongst all the rubbish, and I do like the site but the number of posts or stars or flags or whatever that somebody has bears close to no reflection on the quality of their comments. Some of the biggest tools on here have thousands of them!

4: Participate in writing contests, research projects, debates etc…
Now obviously this is all in jest. Didn’t know whether to put it in the rants or jokes forum.
I just wish people would settle down is all I guess.
