I guess that's because it's better to skip a comma than a period. But YMMV.

But seriously, congratulations on your milestone!

I don't normally include my personal residence equity since I have have to live somewhere. I count liquid net worth except for estate planning. For planning I leave out dots and commas.
If the goal is counting commas, convert to another currency such as yen.

Congrats on your milestone.... many more to come.

Seriously though, thanks all for the good wishes.

You really feel that's how I came across? If so, that was not my intention. Rather I wanted to provide motivation to keep on doing a great job and strive for further greatness and financial freedom.

We use commas in Britain for 000's dividers, and full stops in decimals

Problem is that lending the money does nothing to net worth... you add an asset and a liability that zeros out... no movement...

Now, one of my BILs thought that it did ... which is why he had over $5 mill in debt at one time.... lost all the assets and had to declare BK....
