I know nobody likes to hear someone bitch about Antipoints, so you're not going to get one.

This is aimed at two types of people, those of us who have reached a point where we no longer notice the gaining of Antipoints and those of us who are still in the chase for those green gifs.

Firstly, do Antipoints serve as a reward for good members or social members?

Or, are they merely a tool for established members to ban any newbie who dosent read the FAQ before posting?

The reason I am questioning the system is because good members no longer get rewarded by Antipoints, or feel any desire to gain more. It has reverted back to the stage before Antipoints when you posted good tutorials and replies just to become a respected member by name, not by how many dots are under your name.

So, this begs the question have Antipoints passed their sell by date?
