Many words from Herman.
If there is no misinformation then there is no reason for any corrective
If there is misinformation the laws prescribe how that is to be handled.
If there is UI the laws prescribe how that is to be handled.
In either case the Director shall be called to the table and is responsible
for sorting things out.
No player is allowed to act in conflict with the laws (allegedly) in order
to avoid damage.
End of story.
