It circumvents the entire spirit of the hunt. I remember one year the team that lost to us tried to buy their win. While we were out getting a lot of little points for getting out around the con and Vegas, they were buying all the things we chose to pass up or otherwise acquired without the involvement of a pocketbook. They even tried to get last minute points with a fat donation to the EFF. While any donation to the EFF is laudable and we certainly appreciate their support, they found out that it's just not the way to go about winning.

    We had WAY more fun AND our pockets weren't empty at the end of it. Oh yeah... and we won.
    I couldn't agree more, some of the random little stuff was way more fun to make, or attempt to circumvent the rules a bit as there is always room for interpretation ;)
    I would like to meet a 1 to keep my 0 company.
