I recieve reputation points from time to time. I ussually recieve positive repuation points as a result of my famous "words of wisdom" that I enjoy placing into threads.
Its nice to have this reputation system, but I'm content knowing I have the respect of most of the people from this community. ;-)
Just so I'm not considered off topic, once again, great job with the 12,000 mark! Its nice to see how people have contributed so much to this community.
