Love the sarcasm, but understand the truth that XP is a very motivating force around here, whether you have 200 points or 40,000 points.
When I first stumbled across the threshold of the monastery, I never thought about XP because I felt like such a dolt in the midst of all the genius and I figured I'd never get any. But then I discovered you could score XP by still being a dolt and asking good questions. I enjoyed seeing my ranking go up. XP was fun.
However, by the time I became a saint, I had stopped thinking about XP because I had learned enough to almost be embarrassed by my ranking. You know, the old learned-enough-to-know-how-much-I-still-have-to-learn scenario. So, at times, I still feel like a dolt in the midst of all the genius—but I can now look at my XP and feel a little better about it.
