It was not my intention to use this as a mechanism to deal with spoiler
players.  Spoiler players requires some form of player identification.
The only one that comes to mind is the credit identity of the player.
This would mean that all children playing off the same parent's credit
cards would be blocked if blocking was necessary.  I suppose there are
legal reasons why credit identities cannot be used for this.
