I missed it also when "Professional" was added. I thought a Professional was a user who reached platinum for all types of reputation
But then I posted a question about Professional in Bugs & Suggestions, and then it was clear to me.
The quick red ProgramFOX jumps right over the Lazy<Dog>.
Thats what I had thought as well, but then I saw someone posting about filling it in and getting access and I noticed they had less points than me. So I went to my profile and it seemed I had everything, but apparently not
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
As your points increase, it symbolizes that your knowledge and skill increase too. Later it becomes an addiction to be the best of the best. Eventually after months of study and hard work, you will find that you are in an altogether different zone.

Please note this is an exercise which help developers to grow both as a developer and an individual(if you take it seriously).
The points which you earn here will ensure that you reach the epitome of all the qualities i just mentioned above. Write articles, study hard, solve doubts. You should make sure people are relieved from their doubts because:
Half knowledge is far dangerous than no knowledge
Try speaking or conversing with any of the MVPs or people with maximum points when you ask a doubt or any question in any of the forum as a matter of fact. You will be amazed at their knowledge and their wit, and their experience.
So when you gather those many points, then i will ask you:
what is this point ??
how to use this point ??
what should i do with it ??
These points don't give you any super power, but they are a reflection of your knowledge and skill.
