Sounds like sort of a racist question, why discriminate against people of another color?

Maybe AR should not award points for answers to (please don't make me pronounce "anonymous") posts.  That should cut out half the responses.

Not all anonymous posts are spam. There are legitimate reasons for asking anonymously - questions about active deals or about brokerages when you don't want to tip your hand, for example.

Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 - It is the quantity of the questions!

We barely get 20 questions a day, hardly sufficient to get the full quota of the points for answers.

So most of us answer all the questions.

For the points.  We no longer get 20 questions a day, sometimes barely 10.  For those that are point motivated, they need these questions... even if just to answer with a dot.
