Q: Should we use 1000k, 1.0M or 1,000k in a reputation graph?

wythagoras Jon Skeet has recently reached enough reputation to make the 1000k label show up in the reputation graph. However, I am wondering, should we use 1000k, 1.0M or 1,000k in a reputation graph? Maybe something else?

A question to ponder: is SE (as we know it) closer to the end of its life than to beginning?

Those people have, like, actual jobs you know...
 
Yeah, hold back on the pings a bit @UnitedStatesOfAmerica
