XP is worthless.

I gain true experience by simply reading, testing and writing code.

    Also sprach Mr. Muskrat:

    XP is worthless.

    I quite agree; I've moved to OS X and I wouldn't go back.

    (Okay, hands up all who saw that one coming down the pike ...)

    As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    XP is worthless

    This is really true. Every time I start seeing myself XP whoring I tend to remember the qoute "I am not a number, I am a free man" and start thinking about XP as just a number in the database (which is somehow sometimes controlling my mind... Need... more... XP...)

    So XP is really just a number. However the knowledge that I have gained here is worth more than ability to vote or to put my picture on a homenode. Seriously.

    Well, of course it is. Doesn't learn you perl, and it doesn't make you a better person. But for those who like arbitrary numbers....
    It's not pessimism if there is a worse option, it's not paranoia when they are and it's not cynicism when you're right.

    XP is worthless.

    Not totally true. Whether you believe XP to be worthless or not, XP on a node can be a good deterent for not posting badly thought out answers, or stupid questions. If you're XP starts going backwards, you generally end up thinking things out more. Of course that would infer that you even pay attention to nodes that you reply to, or create.

    Course I'm a hipocrite talking about how XP isn't totally worthless when I'm just too damn lazy to log (for months now) because I blast my cookies on a regular basis.
      You are also confusing a monk's XP with a node's reputation.
