To whom this may concern,
As you most likely have seen, the community has split into two pieces that hate eachother with a passion. Why is this, you might ask? The latest blog post along with the halo item seem to be the culprit. People without the halo are banning people with the halo from their servers (they're in charge of an awful lot of them) and the halo-less are getting discriminated on the halo-havers' servers. It has even infected a lot of gaming forums. (Including the Steam Forums)
I'd like to propose some things to mend this gap between the community and give a more fitting punishment to the idlers:
1. An item, much alike the halo, for the idlers. Hear me out on this one.
The Cheater's Curse
Level 83 Aura of Corruption
-15 or 25 health decrease on wearer
-Forced to wear on every class you don't have a hat for
-Vanishes after a specific date (when the punishment ends) or no more negative effects after this date
Proposed looks (made a model for this):
2. Maybe a blogpost concerning the community's behaviour?
3. Please don't give the Halo any positive effects, it'll be like giving out free hacks.
I didn't make this mail because I am now poor and Irish (I had many hats but I did not bringe them) and because that is problematic when testing new hat replacements. Instead of that I made it because a lot of people seem to agree with me that this is a good idea and this'd be a better punishment than removing "idled" hats and giving out halos to the other part of the community.

I thought this'd be an optimal solution since
A) It'll (hopefully) stop the QQing about the Halo hat.
B) It's still a punishment, not a freebie.
So what do you think of this solution?
