I think the concept of points is quite offensive to the seriousness of the posters and the pain they are trying to deal with by coming here.

I remember many times in the past when I posted I was deep despair and had nowhere else to go with my distress. Fortunately at the time there were (and still are today) people here, and on the Samaritans, who were prepared to listen and respond as one human being to another. I can't even begin to imagine how awful it would have been to discover that they were doing it out of some competitive need for 'points' or e-bucks or other power trip. And what a loss for them in their humanity if they were. Dr Bob, I hope you will drop this ill-conceived idea very quickly. It goes against the whole logic and ethos of a site of this kind.
