A target rich environment is only available when you have enjoyable targets to play with. An enjoyable target is one that knows the rules and plays by them and stays in the sim. I think things like the Plantation Noob day or other events like CANOP can do a lot to lessen potentially bad incidents and it also gives no excuse to those who choose to behave unacceptably when such events are available to be attended.
Jesus, sounds like OASA all over again. Please god, just shoot me dead right now.
I like the host controlled online rating and invite/signup system.
