Don't you get it yet? IT IS EQUAL! Anyone can do what I did with M-Tek. Anyone, including you, me, Wonko, BvS, bd, and on and on. If you're trying to make everything equal for everyone, then you're continuously trying to fix a problem THAT DOESN'T EXIST!

And I don't care if you don't want to squash me or neuter me, YOU ARE SQUASHING ME AND NEUTERING ME! You've been trying to take away functionality that has worked just fine for M-Tek for a long time now, at no cost to anyone. The result of your efforts is that WBE got incapacitated at least once, and M-Tek's basic business model got monkeywrenched at least once.

I don't give a damn what your intentions are. It's your effects that are making me angry.


-It occurs to me that perhaps what we should do every so often is allow totally illegal actions to go through... yes, creating the Wand of GR! was not legal, but if we all pretended it was, we wouldn't have this problem any more. There are problems with that method, but not many, and not this large.-

I've seen such tactics used before, and it's my opinion that that's quite a cop-out; the point of the game is to lead to interesting logical conundrums; ignoring them is to negate the purpose of the game.

Not to mention the combined effects of allowing this through and being able to cite precedent for a CFI ruling.
