Why in the world would someone allot points for printing out source code?

@Maddus Mattus: Using trees is good for the climate (assuming sustainable forestry), but unfortunately the production of paper is quite polluting to the environment; the lignin extracted from the wood is a pollutant as are the bleaches and other chemicals they use in the process.
We should be making all PC cases from wood! Just sand down the rough corners and it'll be fine!
Yes, this is encouraged because of the pollutants used in it's creation.
Unfortunately, the quality of the paper goes down every time it's recycled (as the fibers get smaller and smaller each time) so you cannot recycle it indefinitely.
I have a copy of the book 'Cradle to Cradle' which is printed on 100% perfectly recyclable plastic which the authors claim (with some authority) is more environmentally friendly than paper! (because it can be indefinitely recycled without loss of quality).
If you are a
true greenietree, you should be all for more CO2!
Fixed that for you.
I used to print out stored procedures and code all the time. But I think that was before I talked the company into getting devs on dual monitors a long while back. And I also have a nice Tablet PC, so any code stuff I just send to my tablet and Print to OneNote anything I need to read/view. E.g. mockups, code, FSDs, SOWs, etc.
I like to print code to read over. I find I can focus better while reading paper media than from a monitor. I also buy paper books. I'm the type that starts coding with paper and pencil too.
We print out code in code reviews. Sometimes. It's really not THAT strange.
The stranger thing is rewarding people for using the goto statement or putting 100 fields in a single class. Actually they seriously remove the whole "Don't Try This At Home" section or make it give negative points. They shouldn't even joke about things like that. Who knows what idiots actually put this kind of stuff in production code just to win some achievements. Actually a lot of those achievements are total crap.
