Memrise goes OCD

Just one person’s humble opinion, but I think Memrise has gone too far with keeping track of a level of detail that wants to turn us into obsessive compulsivives. I don’t need to know how many seconds it took me to type in the word 글쎄요.  I’m not motivated by keeping track of points.  Telling me the “streak” of correct answers is likely to make me hate doing flashcards.  I am a recovering Farmville addict.  Nothing that is designed to trigger OCD tendencies needs to be part of my studies.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead you to do repetitive behaviors (compulsions).
