The easiest fix would be to remove the trouble-makers. Warn them that
they are in violation of policy, and if they continue, delete the
character(s). If they still continue, site-ban them.

Yes, I do code so that the MUD will sprout as few abusable bugs as
possible, but I will not waste dozens of hours coding on something to
prevent annoying, pre-teen, imbiciles from causing havoc. I will,
instead, remove the imbiciles.

Then again... you're probably a nicer guy than I am. :)
