> Why don't we just get rid of this entire XP thingy?
Awwww, come one! Some of us need whatever validation we can get. It's like that scene twords the end of The Wizard of Oz:
Back where I come from we have men who are called heroes. Once a year they take their fortitude out of mothballs and parade it down the main street of the city. And they have no more
courage than you have. But - they have one thing that you haven't got! A medal!! Therefore, for meritorious conduct,
extraordinary valor, conspicuous bravery against wicked witches, I award you the Triple Cross. You are now a
member of the Legion of Courage!
I figure XP is like that. Sure, it's all in our heads, but still, it's fun to parade up and down Main Street with once a year or so.
