    Neg> are you saying I should actually look at my antipoint center again? I opened it recently, but that was because I clicked on the wrong link.

    ok so if you want $100 for yours that works out as $0.135317997293640054127198917456022 per ap (or there abouts lol) so at same reckoning at same value per point for me I should ask for $661.434370771312584573748308525034 lets round it up to $662 - but then I also have senior member status so make it an even $1000 - then add on fact am on all top10 lists say $200 per list = $1800
    now factor in have been here for 2yrs (there abouts)
    and in a yr i work about 240 days at 7hrs per day
    so i work 1680 hrs a yr - times by 2 for the 2 yrs spent here 3360
    then divide the asking price of $1800 by 3360 works out as about :::
    $0.535 per hr oO

    ummmm dont think will give up day job

    Anti-points are good and the system works to a fair extent, (coming from someone who's never had a lot of them and probably now never will.

    I don't have the money to buy your points off you and I don't see the point anyway (no pun intended). If you guys want to see the system be scrapped then scrap it, if you decide that maybe the system has earned a special lease of life then keep it, either way its up to you.
    Do or do not there is no try.

    When you eliminate the imposssible whatever remains however improbable must be the truth.

    I got a better idea V and lumpy. Lets start an Antipoint Assinment Aquisition Assossition (AAAA) (and don't mind my shitty spelling). We will just use our accounts and sell greenies to other people. Say, $10 for a dark green dot (first 5) and $50 for a light green dot (last 6). so a newbie that wants 11 greens would pay us $350. We split that between the 3 of us and end up with $115 a person (last $5 goes to business expenses).

    Then, if we decide to really expand, we can start selling posts to get them to higher levels.

    But, but but.. JP said we'd be able to trade in our points for AO lunchboxes.. <whine>

    *sigh* I guess I'll never get one now..
    ee, that would have been a good reason why AP's would be around to have some incentive to be good. Now these points are just way to have an excuse to bitch.

    Toss it. It's past it's expiry date.

    Antipoints are "passed their sell by date". the system that is used to give them out is flawed. so yeah, they don't really serve any purpose anymore other than letting seniors ban newbies that don't read the FAQ's...but, if we get rid of antipoints, then how are we goign to determine who gets banned? So it really just comes back to that fact that antipoints aren't perfect, but they're all we got. And no, i didnt write this just because i don't have a lot of antipoints {shifts eyes back and forth nervously}...no {nervous laugh} of course not...

But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller

    How do you think the site was run before Antipoints slick? Members were banned much less before Antipoints and maybe there is a reason behind that.
