The point of the community is to have a sense of community. Like other people said, not go insane by being alone at a computer for hours on end with nobody around that can relate to what you're doing. Your emotions want you to connect, but logic says to compete. It'd be much more clear-cut if we weren't each others' competitors. I've gone into this tirade more than a handful of times when I've tried to explain to people why I sell some of my scripts rather than just giving them all away for free. You scratch my back, I scratch yours, kind of thing.
