@stonestorm if you expect to rely on only people's good will your social project would suck. SO's art is creating more motivation for people to share knowledge than just 'helping others'. If you can earn points without actually 'helping' it's the fault of a poorly-designed score system that can be improved. It's not the problem of the concept of scoring.
@potata If the app is useful to you (i.e. you use it) then there's no way you will uninstall it because of a notification (especially when the option to mute is only a few taps away)
Developer doesn't get money if you don't use the app (except subscription). So to them there's no difference between you uninstalling the app and letting it sit in dust.
