Yeah, but making 'em proposals was more amusing. :-)
Point taken, though. The two "give me points" proposals are un-recognized.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to point out something that should
be clear to everyone involved by now: I'm new at this. I've only played in
a few Nomics, and have never attempted to run one before. To that end,
until such time as a justice system is created, I'm it. I can only promise
that I'll try to act fairly - i.e. in the best interest of the game and
all the players. Anyone that's unhappy with such a mindset is welcome to
visit the Nomic Database and find another game in which to play.

Yeah, the Bank thing was pretty ugly, what with some of the economic
gymnastics that had to be performed just to keep the darn thing solvent.

Your vote change is recognized and added to my vote-o-matic, btw.
