... we could keep everybody's point balance in a quads record.  Running an add in group ads would cost so many points (or milipoints) per click through.

Another idea might be that applying certain icons to a message cost points.  So that when someone puts a  on a item, it costs them points.  Hense it would be a real gift.  One person is thereby giving another person some of their reputation.
