Q : Is the point subjective?                 -   -   -   making a point   -   -   -
A : Yes, if you see a point that's the point. If you dont, there is none, at least not to you.
If you find meaning in something, it has a meaning to you.
That does not mean it means anything to me or anyone else, whether well meant or not.

Q : Is the point nonobjective?                 -   -   -   point in case   -   -   -
A : Yes, the point is all yours! Something you love might be something I hate and vice versa.
It's been said many times before but it always rings true. Art is in the eye { / mind } of the beholder.

Q : Does a point have to be original?                 -   -   -   point well taken   -   -   -
A : No. Does a swift kick in the arse become any less painful because you were just kicked there a minute ago?

Q : Is the point always this elusive?                 -   -   -   another point on making the point   -   -   -
A : No. Sometimes the point is very obvoius and sometimes it's not.
This does not mean that the instant point is any better, often I personally find this to be quite the opposite.

Q : Does there always have to be a point?                 -   -   -   dont point that thing at me   -   -   -
A : No, not at all. Very often making a point will come in the way of other things like for instance, lying.
You and you alone, decide if you want / need / see a point or rather go pointless.

- focal point / turning point / moot point -                 -   -   -   a point on the web, lost in code, like a tear in the rain...   -   -   -
