I totally disagree with the whole thread. You are missing two important points here:
First: Maybe half of the PTS available have been mined yet but it will take alot of time and cpu power to mine the other half.
Second: PTS value has been very high straight from day 1. So if you complain it does not skyrocket like Feathercoin or Primecoin, keep in mind that ONE PTS is already worth TEN USD! Hard to beat that with any other new alt coin.
