What are our forum points for?

I have been into my forum profile and have noticed points. So I started looking around to see what everyone else is. What determines your points? Is it how much people agree with you? I don't know because there are a few people like @GroundedWisdom that I normally agree with who have negative points. Any help would be appreciated.

    What affects negative Points is Flags. The Points themselves aren't really valuable for anything. Originally, the metrics were visible and it led to arguments about who Flagged who. People started abusing them because there is no Dislike option. Flags are only for comments we find violate the rules of the Forum. Otherwise the Points add a positive number, except for LOL. They really aren't worth anything, just a reaction thing.
