Well, its fun for a while, then it gets tedious... Most people when
confronted would simply say "oh, I didn't realise" and start playing by the
rules.  Its the ones who were trying to get away with multiplaying that were
amusing.  We also changed to a 2 char limit, and the problem mostly went
away.  I think our mud suffered for allowing it, but it was too much trouble
to deal with them.  I found it particularly amusing to catch them on one the
first 2 questions where no trickery was involved, they just gave the wrong
answer... twice... :-)  I even had one like this once, trying to be a little
too clever:

You say, 'what's 9+4?'
PlayerA says, '12'
PlayerB says, 'twelve'
