I agree all points, even if i don't think it was needed to make such a topic for something happens very rarely. I am gonna give a positive vote, however, i think this rule :"
$2.3 Players on the same team must not deny help. Exception: if you are being attacked or if your help is going to cause trouble for your civilization." is very manipulable, because sending own army to help your ally always causes problems, since your empire is less protected.

Thank you for your opinion, Matty.
This rule should be used only if the player who should help is in a good position.
However - I personally wasn't sure about this rule too, that's why we decided to not describe it in: $2.9.
It means that the government won't interfere in $2.3, so it's more like a "rule on paper", to show that it's nice to help teammates.

The Act has been prepared mostly by the Department of Justice, and I'm very surprised - because it's actually good!

I voted to "accept the Act in unchanged form" for the following reasons:
- Those were unwritten rules, and most of the players respected them anyway.
- The Act isn't dangerous for the players who break the rule, but even if this happen - they'll learn to not do harmful things in the further games (after a report - somebody from the Ministry of Game Affairs will contact them and explain what they shouldn't do).
- Finally the scout trick against teammates will be illegal.
- The victims of the bad teammate's behaviour will have a lawful reason to report them here.

I remember this was happening already in 2010 (when I started EE2 Multiplayer). Now it's happening hardly ever, but it is/was still a problem, since the Department of Justice decided to create an Act.
