i have a (slightly off-topic, and i apologise inadvance...) question: who is Pat Buchanan?! he/she is on pretty much every poll and i never know who he/she is... yeah, so i know i should probably google it but that's just too simple... ;) plus, i'd quite like to find out how and why he/she always ends up on the poll... (?)

It seems to encourage new users to critique and earn points, then you have something to spend them on. Although its a miniscule about of points really. But without it what is the point of the points system?

I neither love it nor hate it, it seems a two sided arguement.

Moth and Myth <- My comic! :D

For in everything it is no easy task to find the middle ... anyone can get angry—that is easy—or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy; wherefore goodness is both rare and laudable and noble.
— Aristotle
