Yes I do believe we need to be patient with those striving to 500K and FREE!  We were all there at one point or another (pun intended)  I find it ironic that those with the most points seem to be the ones on a mission to have points removed.  But I digress . . .   I'll keep my head down and eyes on my own paper!

Patient?  I'm not sure I understsnd but points are certainly important to those trying to reach that important 500,000 for FREE MEMBERSHIP.  I doubt ActiveRain points or ranking is discussed in the real world.

I think everyone should be patient, including some looking to move up that want to do so, without putting in their time, effort, blogs, comments etc.

Of course we should be Richie, although, I'm the wrong person to ask about points. They're going to happen whether we like them or not. I'll use this link as an example. You may reach your destination sooner but your content and reputation might suffer in the end.

Richie, I'm patient right up to the point their pursuit of points leads them to leaving an ill-placed "congrats on your new listing" comment on a consumer facing post that is NOT about my new listing.  IMO that leaves me little choice but to hit the delete button.

It depends on how they are trying to do it. If it's via entering contests, posting interesting content and making to-the-point or intelligent comments or answeres - then yes. If it's making inane remarks like "I don't know"; just "thank you" or "no idea", then NO.
