  The rest of your points look pretty solid to me, but I do not understand
  this.  Especially when there is such a move towards "building communites"
  on the Web, and that is seen as a good thing for marketing and keeping
  your customers.

  Not much, but I am curious how you reward people for their contributions.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
