I agree that introducing the sleeplearning option again would only be replace a kind of inequality with another one. The main prob with idling, actually, is not that it enables people to raise their skills faster than others, for if they don't master
these skills, they will lose xp rather than accumulating it. It is that such a way of acting is detrimental to the whole game environment. But asking guildmasters or barons to monitor potential idlers is unworkable in practice and would only lead to f
ierce quarrels inside guilds and cities. Well, that said, i think it is up to the gods now to find a workable technical answer to the problem, for only they know the kind of programming which is possible.
