It's their own fault.

If you have a strength of 18 and have a +110 modifier (or higher) from
strength it will revert back to negatives.  A strength of 16 would take a
+112 modifier.

This will not go back to normal when it wears off either.  Since the
modifier is now +116 and their strength is 0, they'll end up with -116
strength which will once again go back to 0.  I don't think this will work
to get a higher strength though.


1) Leave them at 0 strength.
2) reroll <stupid_player>
3) Make strength non-accumulative.

I'd do #2 and #3, and that'd get huge gripes from people.
