I mean account points literally don't matter anymore. There are no awards henceforth, or penalties. Hence my usage of the past tense. But we have people whose accounts were getting hammered by literal elaborate sting operations, people getting awarded eight points for "let's see how many it takes to crash the mud", threats to remove points for annoying forum posting, point revocation for inoffensive IRC comments, and so on. Account notes being used to note patterns of behaviour over a period of time is actually what the system was intended for, for better or for worse-- probably someone could have said something at the time but the notes on your account don't have much, if any place in commentary about how the system was seriously abused.
