I thought this was fixed already...but you not only get to corrupt and get to do SERIOUS damage if you happen to be a lower level
god than the person  you switch into.

ie.     You are a greater god.
        Victim is an Implimentor

        switch into linkless Victim body or switch in while he's switched.
once in his body, the mud USE to allow all command HE is capable of, you become him.  I am not on the mud, nor am i close to code
so i don't know if it still does this.  This is a REAL security breech
if you get some buttwipe who switches into an IMP's body and decides to
have deleting all the players and wizlocking the place...or
anything equivilent.  I hope we can see where this may lead....quinn for
some reason comes to mind.

Anyways, I thought this was covered about a year ago but apparently not?
