IIRC, they're based off the number of posts you've made on the site and other things. I think if you answer the QOTD correctly, those also add to the points. I think there's somewhere that breaks down the points -> title...

Part bragging rights, part gag.

They are just some fun way to indicate how many points you have already gathered.
Some point totals have special statuses that only people who know a lot of baseball understand...

That would be a useful link to have on the page where they list the points leader board.

Indeed it is
There was a question of the day recently about the statuses, and a lot of people got it wrong because they didn't know the existence of that thread.

That particular thread is also no longer true. The "titles" for the higher levels has changed at least once since that post.

The points are for fun, I suppose. I got a chuckle out of an interviewer when I told him my points title on SSC. He asked me which forums I use.
I don't know if it helped. I got called back for a final interview. I didn't get the job. They chose a local candidate over me. I would have had to move. I didn't mind moving but they preferred to hire locally.
