I admit that I don’t fully understand this CFJ decision. However, aren’t there CFJs that say, essentially, that a player cannot use a shorthand “I perform an action X times,” when X is a number large enough that the player couldn’t reasonably spell out all of those actions separately in the message? If I am remembering that right, and if the creation of each unit of influence is a separate action, then perhaps the attempt create 1,000,000,000 units of influence failed under that reasoning. > In any case, I think it's clear that e must be given the maximum possible > sentence.

This is probably true. And there is some poetic justice and comedy value in the idea of imposing a billion blot fine. Starting to regret finding this exploit!
