Players starting a 2nd position, forming a load of nobles, giving
them to their real position, and the bogus position dropping out.
1) The program keeps count of how many transfers each player
has received, so you can sort out any abusers.
2) A transferred noble reverts to (a low level of) contract loyalty,
perhaps even contract-0.
Just looking at email address is _not_ enough. I know of several folks
who are likely to want to play Olympia; all but one has lost email
access so up to 2 or 3 could share very similar account/user names.
