Precisely. What's the point? So what if you or your team finds a cure? Does that mean that everyone else's work has been worth less? I dunno. it just doesn't sit well with me. Finding a cure is important, and I think making a points-based system is trivializing folding's importance in finding a cure. Just my opinion.

The only reason people compare PPD is that PPD is a direct measure of how fast you are folding. There's some aspect of competition, but that only benefits everyone.

I totally agree, competition is good. Brings more people into the scene of folding, and if anything helps the cause. Competition is a win win situation imo

Its like a race for charity... People still want to win the race, but even the people walking are making a difference.... Whos to say if we will ever find a cure folding, theres also a chance that someone will find the cure on there first project. who knows really. The competitive nature of people does help this cause though.

Points create healthy competition which pushes people and teams to try to produce more points, thus hopefully finding the cure faster.

This guy is only folding for the weekend, sure he's flexing his muscles a little bit but it's always impressive to see just how powerful some machines are out there.

If I covered the entire roof of Casa Skripka with solar panels, I could not power my sig rig for folding.
