 spoon-discuss: Re: spoon-business: Proposal: Point Protection

I think this is a BAD IDEA.
A proposal like this will only solidify the difficulty of transferring
points. This means that players will have to keep track of eir own points
owed - which is not hard to keep track of, but enforcing payment is all
but impossible. I think we should at least have some sort of mechanism
whereby the banker or administrator can forcibly take points from a
player.
It's just - when you let times stretch out, as they inevitably do when
working with beauracracy, they eventually get lost.
