in reply to XP for X Number of Replies

I agree. One of the best reasons for having the XP system is to encourage people to post and discuss. It's the discussion and thinking that is the goal.

However, this idea could be abused by trollers. They would purposely post a message to get people to flame them back and inflate their XP.

Even with that possible abuse, I think it would be cool.

    But then again, you could always vote negatively on the trollers! In conjunction with the auto-delete (below -5 xp) idea, this would be perfect, and solve the trollers issue!

    I thought of that as well. In the event someone posts an incendiary, XP-- would apply.
