I never said I was the society.  I said I was the sum totality of the society.  If a society is an entity that has members and a charter, and Nzurich doesn't have a charter, that means all the pieces that make up the society consist of me.

That doesn't necessarily mean things that apply to a society also apply to me, nor does it mean things that apply to players cease to apply to me.  After all, I cease to be the sum totality of the society once the charter gets put in.  And since I wasn't the sum totality of the society when the society was first created, my bandwidth wouldn't have been initially 0.

But you're right, I wouldn't want to be a society.  I'd be constantly worrying about losing members...
