Everyone loves competition. That is the reason for the team competition. It makes people want to do more which in turn helps Stanford even more. You always hear about points this and team competition that because that is what we know about. We cant sit around here talking about the research because very few of us can even understand the science behind it all. But trust me on this one, majority of the people on OCN are doing it for the research. They are doing it for a loved one, a freind or even a total stranger they met who happens to have one of the diseases Stanford is researching.

you made a real sacrifice for folding: buying an intel!

(p.s. I'll buy one of those optys off of you when you need money for another quad )

and btw, my mom is a cancer doctor and only makes people with insurance pay all the charges and I fold to help out

The vast majority of people do it for the cure or at least the research but the points makes everyone try alittle harder i.e. higher overclocks, more upgrades, buy more computers, etc. Whatever their reason for folding is, just remember they are folding so it helps the research. Just my .02 cents
Agreed. Points show how dedicated a person is to contributing to the cause of folding. The points and work units reflects on the research a user has donated to the cause of finding a cure. Whether you believe in the cause or not you are donating to research by simply getting points. If thats what it takes to get hundreds of thousands of people folding than so be it. When new discoveries are found through this type of research, people will realize what they have accomplished and hopefully this will bring a new meaning to folding for them.

Points create friendly competition (within Overclock.net and between Overclock.net and others). Competition tends to stimulate activity.

In many instances, the points are what get people who would not contribute to do so because "they don't care".

Why someone contributes seems like a negligible point when compared to the fact that they are contributing.
