I've been somewhat ticked off recently by all the nasty spam reaching us from all over the world. I have a few spikes ready - all I need is a bunch of fresh heads.
Unfortunately, all members fall under E.'s protection as soon as they sign up. And that includes spammers.
We need to improve E: his protection (energy re-distribution) should exclude banned members. If this condition is already part of his make-up, I don't think it's explicit. Do we need E.'s original creators to make the necessary improvements or can we do it ourselves?
Or should we leave E. as is and create a new helper - a much less pleasant one, specifically for the purpose of dealing with spammers and situations which require counter-action? If so, we need to make sure the new entity won't butt heads with E.
