Hmm.  I was just looking at random problems and I saw this problem on the site two days ago.  Except that problem asked for the maximum number of points, and did not specify that 7 was possible.  A solution for 7 was eventually found by one of the solvers.

Oh, just found it.  It is called "Zimmerman's Family Points" and was posted in 2005.  It is a very good problem, and I encourage people to try and solve it before looking up the previous posts,
