I'll still never understand why people complain/care about points. Everyone here that is not employed by Oracle is volunteering their time because they [presumably] like helping people, problem solving, wasting their company's time. That should be reward enough. I mean would you go to a soup kitchen and expect a reward because you got the most compliments about serving the food?
Considering you are at the mercy of whoever asks the original question as to whether the answer is correct or helpful, attaching any tangible reward to points is pointless (no pun intended). Correct and helpful are both subjective anyway given the way most of the questions are asked.
That being said, if anyone wants my points, they can have them. I still have enough Habitat for Humanity trophies laying around here to self-congratulate.
