in reply to PerlMonks XP Value

Its primary value is to spur beginners on up the learning curve.

I think once you get to a certain point the thrill of XP wears off, but then you stay involved with the community for other reasons: habit, personal connectsions, more subtle and wholesome factors.

As others have mentioned, high xp could also put you in a more positive light to potential employers. It's a crude and naive metric, but still.
