Because they have no life, it's their only measure of success. You know this to be true and if you don't give me the points, I'm going to commit hari-kari!;P

Did you follow this question?

http://www.techrepublic.com/forumqa/thread_detail.jhtml?thread_id=58304

(Delete any spaces after pasting in your browser).

We've discussed that, any similar themes, both here and in discussions (there are linksto the discussions in that Q&A thread).

There is no best answer, nor even a consensus. Not even a consensus that some people only care about the points. They could just be lazy or stupid. The repeat offenders, I avoid. (The number one in my bozo bin posts almost daily. Today it's about customizing start menus.)

If someone rejects my answer without an explanation (assuming it was a good answer; some questions are so broad or vague I can only offer suggestions) I always look at their stats. If it looks like this:

# Of Questions Asked 53
Questions With No Reponses 0
Questions Closed Due To Rating Inactivity 0
Answers Accepted 4% 5
Answers Rejected 74% 96
Answers Not Rated 22% 28

Then they've gotten the last of my attention. They can keep their (worthless) points. Oh yeah, they ARE keeping them, aren't they.

Oh well, I heard about this company that will purchase a dialysis machine for 1,000,000 TechPoints and 1,000,000 cigarette wrappers.

Because this kind of person is an emotionally infantile jerk (**** retentive?), NOW GIVE ME THE DAMN POINTS OR I'LL HOLD MY BREATH!

I'm a newcomer. I guess I could use some points. But since I'm young and inexperienced, I can't really answer to many of the technical questions, I try and get the points I can get... like this one.
