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.
