My compliments on a most thought provoking message. I
plan to add it to my articles and files. Please consider
polishing it some more into a self-standing article. I'd
love to see such an article in the It Cometh or other
location. (Thinkwell perhaps?).

I have heard the argument that our award system is set up to encourage 
cookie monstering and I have also heard the argument that our fighting 
system encourages cheating or at least questionable behavior.

I ask you to think about this next time you are _denied_ an award, or are 
tempted to speak ill of a rival. Remember that we all take the test of 
honor every day we are in the SCA and everyone from the greenest newbie 
to the most grizzled duke-triple peer will watch and judge. Pass THAT 
test and you have truly attained the prize.
