Why are people concerned with wasting perk points when they are unlimited?

Not unlimited, although you could max the important skills of Smithing, Enchanting, Destruction (one type), One handed, Shield and Archery, all on one character.

you get 80 perks because the max level is 81 and you do not spot getting perks after 50

So wait...

Has anyone actually confirmed, themselves, that you still earn perks after level 50?

Because I keep hearing yes you do and no you don't, and I would very much appreciate a definitive answer.

Can you lower your skills by going to prison? Or would this adversely affect your level? Or do skills not get lowered in prison in this game?

They don't get lowered, you only lose experience in the current level, but never actually decrease in level.

Even if they were limited, how many do you really need? I'm only using three trees. 50 points is way more than enough, honestly. Unlimited points would be really cool, sure, but I'm not terribly worried about running out. At the end of the day, there's an upper limit on how many trees you reasonably need to use. Remember, your progress on a tree is limited by skill levels. Being a super-generalist would actually be really hard to do.

I feel like there are useless or semi-useless perks in each tree, even the ones I'm using... so I will have no problem getting all the perks I want.

2 days ago I would have agreed with you.

But since then I've found out that enchantment and smithing are practically required no matter what your playing. The equipment you can make is so, so far superior to anything you can find or buy.

So now I've got destruction, heavy armor, one handed, enchantment, smithing, and some conjuration. It's tough.
