I reckon we should change the scoring system to give each command and variable a point each, rather than per length. The per length scoring system gives EXPANDENVIRONMENTVARS more points than GO for no reason.

To improve your score, you can make a UDF called A that contains your WRITEPROFILESTRING function and get a lower score. I think this goes against the whole concept/principle of golf by allowing a more complicated script to score better than a simpler one.

I propose that we change the scoring system to count keywords and variables instead, allowing a better indication of cleaner coding to show. This would also allow more meaningful variable names, increasing code readability.
