Whatpulse only keeps track of how many keys you already use. It's is fun and exciting to reach milestones such as millions but that doesn't negate the fact that you shouldn't be TRYING to get there. It's the same thing on OCN with post counts. People get excited when they hit a round thousand or ten of thousands. That doesn't mean they are out spamming posts to reach that point. Again, if they are, that's not a good thing.
Encouraging people to spam keys for a competition is useless. It ruins any merit the program has at telling you how much you use your PC. Add to that the fact that it is also so ridiculously easy to 'cheat' as well as the fact that users can join from other teams and bring previous keys with them comparing yourself to others is arbitrary. It's nice to tag yourself on the OCN team but besides being grouped that is where any benefit of a 'team' ends.
