Default Points and competition...

Having been here a while I've had the opportunity to see how points move the focus from sharing to competing.

We've had people register under multiple member names in order to award their own photos more points.

We have discussions from time to time as to the best time of day to post, best type of image to post, etc. in order to get the most attention (points).

We've had people become upset because their point total decreased when someone left or someone's meaningless 'critiques' were deleted by Adam.

And,what I consider the largest tragedy of the point system, we have people who write 20 critiques per day, and only 20 critiques because their real goal is to give points to their friends.
