FROM YAHOO...."The points table below summarizes the point values for different actions. While you can't use points to buy or redeem anything, they do allow everyone to recognize how active and helpful you've been. (And they give you another excuse to brag to your friends.)" why do we need to get everyones approval...how frail are we that we jump at every opportunity to build ourselves in the eyes of others...this is bondage. Always trying to project an image of ourselves that gains recognition...What's up with this?
