    What is the criteria for admin or another authoritative entity to deduct post points? Why can't there be an explanation given the individual for what must be unacceptable behavior? If one were notified that a court have found one guilty of an infraction but would not explain the charge, would only execute the sentence...how does that work for the common good? Thank you in advance for any guidance in the matter.

    As far as I know, points are built in to the software. We have no control over them. If you received an infraction, you would be notified.

    I have no idea what this means. The only points I'm aware of that anyone has any reason to care about is infraction points, which the more you have the closer you are to getting permabanned.

    Thanks for your reply. I received a -16 points for post points. All other post point reports have neither a + or -. Find it odd. Are points deducted for infractions? Another forum enigma!

    It is an enigma and really starting to annoy me. I don't care about points, credits or w/e you want to call them, but along with other little issues it tipped me over the edge a few days ago, so I'm going to post on it. Several times now I have come in and received the notification of several people "Liking" a post, with no dislikes and there don't seem to be any thread deletions and no infractions either. Strangely then, I wonder why I've lost 5000 points for no apparent reason.

    Not once. A few times.

    I'm fed up with it. What is going on?

    You could lose your post points when your post is deleted by mods and likes and dislikes do not affect your post points. I lost around 100 points when I deleted a social group I had created and sometimes thread deletions may affect your points as it happened to me on a couple of occasions.

    Did you miss the bit where I said I don't think any posts or threads were deleted?:evileye::megaphone::p

    I can see that happening if it's a couple of hundred points, but it's thousands. And I'm fed up with it, it's annoying.:rip:

    How can it be annoying if you don't care about points?

    In the same way I don't care about you and you're annoying.

    You are somewhat pithy at times, you must allow. But it couldn't be avoided, he set it up himself as is his wont.

    Then one can only conclude you are talking out of both sides of your mouth here just as you obviously were in post #5.

    Hey, any man who refuses to let women lead him around by the nose sets himself up to be insulted by women, just by breathing.

    :cool:

    I explained in post #5 why it annoyed me and you are one of the other issues mentioned there. Now bugger off.

    What about men who let random women lead them around without even making use of the nose..

    To be sure. I've merely taken the liberty of pointing out that said explanation is nonsensical.

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    I shall be happy to ...

    ... the very minute I bloody well feel like it. :cool:

    What about 'em?

    Every post you make is nonsensical, that one made perfect sense. If the function exists, it should function. It doesn't function. It's annoying and I'm sick of it.

    Not getting into it.

    That thick skin is the best part of you.

    I give up.
