What's the deal with Points?

The FAQ shows it to be "fun" way to track debates, yet some here have an obsession with them so much so they appear and have been accused of having multiple accounts for this purpose. Looking at the Weekly Leaderboard, the top member has over 290 points at this time while the second has over 180. Considering both have been accused of multiple accounts and everyone else has much less, it would appear this to be the case, that they are obsessed with gaining "fun" points rather than actually putting forth valid arguments.

For example, a recent exchange I had, there suddenly appeared a long list of members online and I was being down voted heavily while my opponent was being up voted heavily, then he and the entire entourage disappeared at the same time.

Why would anyone be obsessed with such a pointless function?

In a real world we should not need voters ! What is the deal with POINTS ?????????

You were being downvoted heavily because you were brazenly telling lies about yourself, as I explained to you at the time. Even now, instead of holding your hands up and admitting the utter fucking ridiculousness of the things you were typing, you have chosen to misrepresent what happened.

Like I also explained to you at the time, you are a fucking idiot.

You were being downvoted heavily

Yes, by you and your alternate accounts, something you have accused others of doing. But that's okay, if's that's the best you're able to muster.

you are a fucking idiot.

That would be the other 50% of your argument; assert/accuse (hypocritically) then toss out insults.

Tell us all why you have so many accounts and why you're obsessed with using them to gain worthless points?

I absolutely, deeply and lovingly agree with you on this. You have spoken an utmost truth.

This website literally, not accidentally or indirectly, is ranking quantity over quality. Cheating aside, even if everyone obeyed the rules and had one account each and worried about their efficiency rating etc, the site still would have completely shallow sheep-debating quick-remark shit-talk comments as that is optimal to rise in the ranks here.

Also, if you were curious who was responsible I have a secret (non-hacking) tracking method of working out the downvoters. The person who was first known as FactMachine and who you know as LordofFacts knows it but I won't publicly state it. BurritoLunch is a troll who went by QuantumHead and Nomenclature (we call him 'nom' as that's the account he got best known on).

Here is who did it (look at the timing of the downvotes):

http://www.createdebate.com/user/points/Dreadnought

http://www.createdebate.com/user/points/Spanner

http://www.createdebate.com/user/points/Hootie

http://www.createdebate.com/user/points/TheNotorious

http://www.createdebate.com/user/points/BurritoLunch

You can track downvotes but not upvotes.

LordofFacts contributed but didn't use his alts to harm you via downvote.

Well, that's interesting. Suddenly, after many days of being offline, those users came on board, right at exactly that time not to actually post anything, but just to down vote me, then all disappeared. Reading posts from each account sounds incredibly just like BurritoLunch. Fancy that. And, he calls others liars. What a childish obsession. Hilarious.

Thanks for showing that, Ming.

Dude you have no idea about this site. Brontoraptor has more alt accounts than any other user and Nom only started making them to counter Bronto's downvote/censorship campaign. Nom is the far left Marxist of the site similar to myself and Bronto is a far right cunt totally absorbed with his insane ideologies.

I am a Technocratic Socialist, or in other words a proponent of the Resource Based Economy as prescribed to the illness of humanity by Jacque Fresco.

If you have any questions refer to me, for I am Lord of Facts, the holy Fact Machine. 33rd degree mason and supreme extra terrestrial Rhyme-Lord.

You can trade them in for air-miles with Delta and Norwegian Airlines on both domestic and international routes.

LMMFAO that Demorat Child from Antarctica is obsessed with points and efficiency !!!!!!!

It's Child like mentality is a perfect example of the Child like mentality that encompasses the brain of those who cannot think for themselves and the Virtual World is their only escape from a world that is confusing to them. That is all the fools know !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, that's cool, BurritoLunch when from a high 290+ points down to 260+ points, what did he do, trade them in for a spine? Perhaps, he had to pay off his voting lackeys.

Forget them.

When currency is inflated, value is undermined and the requisite trust in their utility is lost. Such is the case with points. The abuse of points by some have made the entire feature a non-issue beyond a bit of emotional mini-expression. Of course if that expression is not sufficient for your emotional purposes, there are alt accounts.
