Ya (you can still technically remove or add an electron to one) but they are ridiculously high due to their stability.

I believe they have no electronegativity. I think I read that in the Kaplan Blue Book, periodic table chapter in the general chemistry section.

no electronegativity because of a full shell of 8 electrons there is not need to pull other electrons. It is too stable in it's neutral state.

Sorry I was referring to affinity not electronegativity.

Affinity is really close to 0 (which would be the most positive value on the periodic table since the halogens are strongly negative).

They aren't given an electronegativity.
