Sure... retrospective penalties are a bit much though.
I slightly agree but the rule addition stands.

Either way, with or without the penalty, you would have dropped from first to second with nudeless's most recent win. Play more, you will pass him and recapture the lead.

An excellent solution. I love having input and am happy to implement when a logical solution is found.

Both engie's amd Behemoth's infractions will be halved. All future :facepalm will receive a full penalty of $300.00
