Well, no, the biggest problem so far is too many people grinding too
many axes at the same whetstone.

And your bank account? That's "just data"....linked to real-world,
physically affective assets. If you close your account, I owe you
the money the data represents.

If you quit my MUD, I don't owe you a sword.
