... Also, Many have witnessed some enter the crown tournaments who do
not have the financial means or time , etc. to fulfill the
obligations required and yet they are allowed to participate by
giving their word that they do. Some of these participants AND
OTHERS have even used their influence to get themselves and their
friends recognition (awards) which have not been earned. Where is the
HONOR AND NOBILITY in this? And why is there not a means to both
stop and rectify these situations when they arise?

it's called reality ... the SCA is a imperfect organization, created
and maintained by imperfect idividuals (ie: your generic human
beings).  such things have happened, are happening, will happen ...
such is the nature of the species.  it's part and parcel of imperfect
people, living in a imperfect world .. will it change?  i seriously
doubt and any near-term incarnation ....

by the by, the level of "honor and nobility" that many in the SCA and
others idolize is essentially a literary fiction - a desire of "how
it should have been", not how it was historically ... if you really
want "authenticity", it would get down-and-dirty really fast ....
