People actually DO this?? I always thought player wipes were just a joke 
threat, like the boogie man is to children. My lord, I have an extremely
different sense of "responsibility" than most of you, but for crying out
loud, wiping out your players has got to be the lamest, most asinine
solution to a problem I've ever heard of. If you have to wipe your player
base out to correct a problem in your design, you suck.
