So it's too difficult to accrue the points required to post an answer because I only want to answer the questions to earn points?

Red pill or blue pill?

I'm sorry, I obviously misread your comment. I really didn't know you need to have points in order to answer questions on SO. I'm pretty sure that wasn't the case when I started there. And it doesn't make much sense to me... how are you supposed to get the points? By writing insightful comments? :-/
