It depends mostly on ratings difference. If one person has a highe rrating than the other then yes there are a few points lost to the higher rated player
some are worth more than others. the kinds of contributions that are more meaningful (articles, etc) are worth more.
at 1,000 points i get you a free t-shirt (as long as they are not achieved through spammy methods)

Harder to monitor if people are spamming when there are more members!
