I never had a problem with it, either. If folks want to earn xp and titles, why not let them. Why let a loud few (very few) folks ruin it for the rest of us. Personally, when the attacks began from about 4 members (one of them being a super high level hipocrit that gained many an xp on these very junk threads he claimed having nothing to do with), out of nearly 10,000 members at the time, i wondered why these four weren't checked by Farcaster, & the mods, immediately. To this day, i am amazed that this behavior was tolerated.
Heck, even i was attacked and accused of accumulating xp and titles, eventually leading me to have Farcaster to remove my xp and title from the site - just to stop these loudmouths from continuing. Then these loudmouths explained it away by stating that i got in trouble with Farcaster - such pathetic liars they are! All this negative behavior discouraged others from enjoying the camaraderie of other gamers.
Truth be told, i finally admitted why i gained so much experience in just a few years, and it was because i was disabled and chairbound. So, you see, by letting these loudmouth fools ruin it for everyone else - with their own jealousies, they were harassing disabled folks - like myself. Funny thing is, i never participated for xp and titles, i did it for escapism of my situation and for genuinely bringing enjoyment and activity to this site with fellow gamers.
If a vote were taken, i believe we would find that near 99% of this site would either want to keep it or be indifferent to the xp and titles given on pnpg. Something to think about.
BTW, i asked Farcaster to put "Cursed by the Gods" under my name. It was NOT put there because i got in trouble, as one of these four had stated. My Avatar is an Undead Lich, which only makes sense to be cursed by the gods. So does "Undead Abomination," when looking at it from the viewpoint of the living.
