3) Enforce a cooling off period. Allow only limited participation for a
period of time. Kinda like a time out or excommunication.

I don't want to see Kimball cast off forever to beg for bus tickets and
table scraps in back alleys, but a simple "whoopsey" doesn't seem
appropriate either. It isn't about a few bytes pumped through a server,
it's about a betrayal of trust. Like inviting the in-laws over and
trying to get them to join your latest MLM. Forgiveness is certain, but
you won't be going to visit them again for awhile.
