Addicted to Askville!!

I recently started posting to Askville at Amazon and man is it addicting. First off they have incentive for you to post and answer by give you "gold" points...you can use these points to get amazon gift cards or shirts and eventually it looks like they will be opening Questville, which allows you to spend your points on more things.

My hat goes off to Amazon for this creative way to grow and foster a community. The design of the site is good except for a couple of suggestions:

The editor kind of stinks...no way to access source to modify tables.
Too many duplicates, the service doesn't check if what you are about to post as a question has been asked...take a lesson from Digg
