[spoon-discuss] Reply: Wonko's stock market fix

[previous text removed for brevity]
Okay, how about this: When we have a business list again, I'll propose something to fix the holes in the Stock Exchange. If my fix passes and none of these "nuke Wonko's assets" proposals does, I'll give 100BNS to everyone who voted for mine and against every 'kill me' proposal, keep 300 BNS and 15 points for myself, and give everything else to the bank.

Then I'll sell all my excess stocks, and give all the profits to the bank, and repeat that until all my stocks are gone.

Would that satisfy people? I get 15 points, instead of the expected 100, 300 BNS, instead of the proposed 500, and all of you get 100 each, to get the economy going?


Not legal, as this contradicts the No Kickbacks rule. How about make the proposal be A: Fix the stock market and B: make the game changes if and only if C: no other kill wonko proposal passes.

Also, Wonko said, "Silliness is relative - compared to some proposals, this is downright sensible. [[Ahem... Proposal 591...]]" in another post. Can anyone either quote or paraphrase that proposal, or give me better directions to find it than 'in the spoon-discuss archives'? I can search through them all, but would rather not if possible.
