It was a quiet, I was tired and I decided to spend the rest of the evening reading before finally nodding off. I bid farewell to ActiveRain via my laptop and gave it permission to enter the sleep mode at its convenience. In other words, I gave it the rest of the night off. A few hours later, I heard noise coming from my laptop. As I opened the lid, ActiveRain page came up and a character made entirely of my points appeared. What? Who are you? My name is.....
Is this ActiveRain Support? Fellows, knock it off its late. Pointdexter responded: I am your 2.5 million points plus in point-form and I am the one rewarding you all this time for your participation. Every-time you blogged, commented or posted, I was there and left behind proof in the form of my self...i.e. points!
OKAY...I'LL PLAY ALONG
What do you want Pointdexter? I want acknowledgment for helping you save money by getting your AR fix for free. Now wait a minute. I object to the use of the word fix says I but was interrupted by Pointdexter saying let's not mince words. Did I hold back points? Wasn't I generous? Don't mis-point with me
THANK YOU POINTDEXTER
The day I stopped paying those monthly ActiveRain fees I remember distinctly thanking everyone and everything. How did you do that pointdexter asked? C'mon, its obvious. I posted more, blogged more, commented with delight and even brought my profile current and then some. I became a true Rainer
That is true because I exist. You see I don't even consider appearing to anyone until they reach the 500,000 mark and of course I do favor those in the millions as I so choose. Well Pointdexter why are you favoring me? Why haven't you appeared to others even those with more points? You got a point for that question?
Do I tell you what to post? Comment? Like? Now you c'mon! Lately I have been looking over the point systems and I see you actually love participating in ActiveRain because you like it. You have even said it is fun, educational and better than the majority of all Real Estate sources put-together. That's why I am here
POINTDEXTER.... I HAVE A QUESTION
What is your question Richie? What is your point says I? Now that is pretty personal Richie however I am taking into consideration your over 2,5 million points and allowing that to qualify for intimacy of a sort so I will answer you. Before I do, I want you to clear your mind like I clear the write a post or question form.
MY MIND IS BLANK POINTDEXTER
My "point" is my life-blood... actually my existence to be clear and without your blogging, commenting and posting I wouldn't be here. I am here to tell YOU how much I appreciate you and how you have not only changed my life but in reality, given me life. There, I said it. I went first. I am vulnerable. Exposed....
IS THIS THE MATRIX?
Yes but now I am called Pointdexter. Richie, stay with me here. Look, I need you to continue your love of ActiveRain and by doing that I live too. You see every-time you love AR or anyone in it via commentings, liking or rebloggings, you are loving the point system thus I thrive, multiply and become one with everyone
RICHIE TO POINTDEXTER
Couldn't you just sent me an email? Or a text or can you text? You still don't get it. I only live for points not contacts, communications or a few words of left-over love. I exist because you love to participate in the Rain and all I am saying is to keep that love a coming...Perhaps encourage your fellow Rainers too?
POINTDEXTER FURTHER STATES
Look...I am here for you, the new sign-ups, the veteran Rainers and gulp even anonymous and I believe that we make a good pairing Rainers and I. As long as they are here, I will be here. Richie, I am asking for your continued support so that I too will grow and perhaps one day find my true identity. I mean who am I really? What am I doing here? Where am I going? What is my purpose? Until I am fully developed, I just want some respect. I do appreciate the love until then however
POINTDEXTER SAYS LET ME BE CLEAR
I am alive because of your ActiveRain participation and your social influence and clout within the community. I live on as you create great content, take part in contests, and when members send us signals that they love the contributions you are making on ActiveRain. Can I count on you?
I WOKE-UP WITH A START
I had just been featured and comments were coming in and my laptop was counting the dings as they landed. I also took note that I was awarded bonus points for extra-special reasons. I cleared my head, and realized that I was dreaming and that it was morning and I slept well.....
NOW TO LOG-IN TO ACTIVERAIN
