    This is something that has always interested me? Like on nforush when you see:
    [ GROUP ] ................... KDZ (+15Pts)

    What are the points used for? Where are they spent? Why are there release groups (other then for +1337ness)?

    I read about this here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warez_scene

    But the only reason(or reward at least) is that they get to download other warez faster/before anyone else?
