Well i think it's a good thing that the point system is on its way out. I think the [only] reason to get people posting should be to have a good discussion and to bring interesting ideas to a topic. I think it's really stupid to want to be the top poster, simply to be the top poster.... I'd rather have 300 posts but everyone thinking i always bring good points, than having 3000 spammish posts.
note: i'm not saying here that people with high post counts are spammers, not all of them.
