I agree with you completely, It should be your
contributions to the site that determine your XP. But
that's obivously not what happened with merlyn. Someone
saw that he was around and decided that they'd give him
another 1_000_000 XP just because of who he is. He
has made valuable contributions to the site (even
without the extra XP he'd be in the top 10 monks), but I'm
not sure what good the 'free' XP do.
I guess my question is really: where do you draw the
line? Is there a list of Perl Names who would be given
free XP if they started frequenting the site?
