In the context of meta it seems incorrect that this question should have been down voted. However, the brazen attempt to test the theory below is more deserving of the down vote. :o) –  Tom Duckering Jan 6 '10 at 11:22

You can't accept your own answer right away - you have to wait for a couple of days.

If you do accept your own answer, you don't get the 15 point bonus.

Of course, you could use two accounts to cheat - but expect people to spot this pretty quickly.
