    My points are gone and I don't get that. On top of that they give you a password that is nonsense. Makes this a tough site to use.

    Yes, they screwed up and took away my points twice and made my account inactive a couple of months ago. Try to contact the webmaster. Hope you have better luck than I did. As other contributors onthe site have pointed out, it isn't personal, but is sure is innefficient and incompetent. Good luck with yours.

      Hey Guys.....I promise we'll look into it and return points where necessary...Our efforts to rid the website of spammers occasionally has some negative effects as we test new blocking software. We understand and apologize for any inconvenience, but promise that we'll get it right and make everyone's user experience fun and informative. Thanks much for hanging in there.—Gerry Bethge, Web Editor

          It happened to me too. My points were taken away and I was given -1500 points too. I don't know why, I avoid being offensive. Also some of my comments were deleted when I corrected a writer on here. But this site does have the best pictures.

            i left this site months ago because it kept doing wierd things. you could post all day and get no points. i really doubt that points mean anything though. i would have had 5 stars if it was acting right. just thought i would give it another try.

              I’m glad someone took the time to ask about points gone missing. I posted twice to the “Is den kill ethical” article by Andrew McKean and was getting good support by the readers when my second post was deleted with….I guess about half or more of my points and all but one of my stars. I didn’t think I was aggressive or offensive with my post; I did quote one of the other posts about that article to illustrate my thought process. I must have irritated someone with web authority. I was more frustrated by the lack of an explanation when I noticed my points/stars were gone. I hope it was technical as I like to participate in the blog comments. Talking about features of this site, I wish I could delete one of my photo uploads that must have had a glitch somewhere. I wrote to the webmaster asking if there was a way to delete photos that don’t upload (it just shows an OL logo) in an effort to rid the site of clutter I created. He/she never answered so it must not be a problem. I REALLY like this site and have been a print subscriber for over 20 years. Keep it up OL but maybe give an explanation if you take points so we know what happened.
