It didn't take long into my first full month running a registered server to discover some cheating going on (surprise huh). I made the server logs available for those inclined to do their own detective work, but I also had some ideas which might be integrated into future releases.

How about full disclosure on the News page for /gives? This would bring those clandestine transactions in the Cafe out into the open. Also, sloppy con artists going for multiple accounts could be outed on the Crime page.

Of course these measures wouldn't be foolproof, but they would make the scamming a bit more obvious.

Hmm, good idea.

Or maybe just a setting to disable give?

You can already do that by setting "tags receivable per day" to zero.  It's a more draconian approach that not all admins might want to implement. I did it though.

Another harsh penalty could be for the game to automatically delete both accounts with the same IP. That would ruffle some feathers!
