    All of these features were added by Vanilla which is the site that hosts these forums.

    Likes- You can like someone's post/comment. Every time someone likes a post/comment of yours, you get +1.
    Spam- Someone can also mark your post for spam. If I'm not mistaken, when a post is marked as spam the moderators are alerted. Similar to likes, you get +1 every time someone marks a comment/post as spam.
    Points- A feature that Vanilla added. Essentially, the same as likes. Every time you get a like, you get a point. It was added after the like feature though, so you'll have more likes than points.

    That's the general idea at least.

    @samiam391 will lead you to believe that the points mean nothing. This, of course, happened when I passed him on the points list ;)

    @Pitfall69 - I'm only 1,300 behind. Watch your back.

    Don't worry. Basically, they don't matter. They just count up how many times someone has 'liked' or marked as spam a post you made. It doesn't really mean anything. Unless you have a personal rivalry going on like the clowns above. ;-)

    If you get a spam vote you get -1 point I think.
