No problem. I was basically just paraphrasing what one of the staff members said once in the forums.
If you post in the forums, you'd get a lot more responses... Points are simply a basic measure of a person's activity level. The more times they've posted, the more points they have, so the more points someone has, the more they've contributed to the site by posting. Points don't do anything; there's nothing you can "buy" or do with them.
