1) Some players are stupid, and will search for ways to make their
reports dense and unreadable. They will then be unhappy because
their reports are dense and unreadable.

2) If your report is huge, I have to pay for it. I have an interest
in wanting to keep people from doing 1,000 looks every turn, and
getting them to use STUDY 14 instead of STUDY 1 fourteen times.

3) I have to read these reports sometimes. Some players screw up,
others encounter bugs. If a report is hard to decipher, it hurts
me as well as the player.
