I think it's a good idea. I think we need to be conscious of food labels and carbohydrates. The points were so difficult for some to comprehend.

The discussion was about points members earn on this site for various things (posting discussions, etc.). (See the Activity Rating beneath your profile photo.)

Personally I like getting points added to my profile when I post a reply. I am like the others leave the points alone. They are wonderful and they give you something to look forward to.

I don't really care if there are points or not. I check the validity of the information or the interest of the discussion to decide what I am going to do with the resources that people are so generously offering their time to give whether they have 1 or 5 stars.

I deleted this after the first two posts, so why go on tearing it apart. just please let it go; no posts and it will.

Should have never been started and if you wanted it to go away without further posts, why did you post again. You are keeping it going saying you deleted it.

I'm not trying to hurt anyone feelings but please get over this points thing sheesh! I've been holding back and not saying anything about this constant topic but frankly I can no longer hold back. WHO CARES!??? It's a website to get help and information for Diabetes not win the lottery.

Let's stick to the topics at hand that matter and not worry about things that don't matter. Shaking my head!!

Well said. But I wish it was that simple. Some just cannot let a dead horse die in peace. Over and Over and over. Please let it stop.

I suggest getting rid of the points only because of the bickering that is creating. I am tired of seeing people being rude to eachother. That is not what this site is for. This is not 3 grade. We are all adults and should behave like one.

I don't know what the points mean.I see get points for this or that can someone explain this. I love this site and wheather the points are there or not I have been so encouraged and blessed by everyone so far that I've made friends with and just wanted to say thanks.Points or No Points.

I see no need to get raid of the points, but i do agree that the discussions are out of hand right now. I am not sure why we need to have 2 or 3 discuusions on the same topic. That could be stopped as far as I am concerned. When yuo see the same thing beingput up 1,2,3 or 4 times it is too much. I don't think taking the points away will stop that. Lanore ;-)

Well I deleted this discussion right away and removed the discussion so is not to beat a dead horse, except the idea of getting rid of the points came from all of you who said they did not care about whether you get them or not. So why compete, I, personally, do not need this abuse either. It started because someone blamed me for posting too much.l bye I wish I could crawl in a corner and die

Lanore 2009-01-11 14:22:36 -0600 Report

Lil don't worry about what other people think I for one like your discussions. I know some people are rude and what not…just ignor that and be your self.
I don't think i ever said I wanted the points to go. I have not been here in a couple of days because of all that is going on at home. Personally i like the points, even though we get nothing for them. And yes some are abusing them. Don't beat yourself up or crawl in a corner. JUST BE YOUR SELF. Lanore ;-)

Please dont say you want to crawl in a corner and die. My boyfriend who was living with me had a massive heart attack and died Jan 6. We buried him Friday. My heart is broken. Life is too short to worry about what others think of you. Be yourself and please be happy.

I hate to be rude, but this has been worked to death. Let's just forget it and take advantage of the site and what it's meant to do - educate and encourage. I, for one, find this extremely silly and childish. I am not reading or posting to anything along these lines any more. This is a huge waste of time and an opportunity for people to get hurt and agitated.

Bluebutterfly 2009-01-11 13:54:11 -0600 Report

Leave the points alone they were here before we were. I don't see what the big deal is post if you want too and don't worry about the points,or post and get the points if you like. This site is for all of us to enjoy exchanging ideas,recipes,products we have tried and for information we may get from here.I personally like the discussions and if I post and get the points ok and if I don't ok.Let's just quit beating a dead horseand come up with some new ideas.Just my two cents worth.

Just my opinion, the points, at this point (lol) just show who is most active on the site. I don't think they hurt or really help anything. I am on my 7th week with diabetes and this site has helped me so much. Leave the points alone. The people who post productive discussions deserve points or a way to be noticed. Thank you all who have helped me! Angie

So why did you start yet another discussion on this topic. This site has points, you either abuse them or you ignore them and make useful posts that people can use instead of useless ones.
