    So you hypothesize that brian_d_foy "voluntarily" invoked his "own free will" more than 1,330 times to reduce his XP?

    Maybe he used PBP to program execution of the point-reduction mechanism? Or, less gracefully, did he do it in a C-style loop? Using Fortran? ADA?

    Even though some adepts have -- in the past, it is rumored -- acted to reduce their XP by large amounts, /me thinks eyepopslikeamosquito has a reasonable question.
