Never waste ECG master time
An ECG member enters into a specific contract to never waste ECG master time. Not to "try not to", not to "avoid doing so", but to actually never do it. It is up to ECG masters themselves to decide the exact criteria for when an ECG penalty will apply. These may include removal from ECG-defined roles or performance of penalty tasks such as perfecting difficult instructional capital or building up the Efficient Civics Guild's social capital in some community. Masters insure their own ECG apprentices against these liabilities, but as membersa, they assume them directly.
The most typical waste of time is to try to redefine terms already in the GFDL corpus namespace in ways incompatible with that corpus. If you have to change a definition, then, get it past the anonymous trolls and propagated to the entire web before you bother anyone else with it.
Another example of a waste of time is to pretend that an idea is a proposal - to submit it directly to ECG members without submitting it to troll testing and applying troll ontology methods to determine if there's a way to reconcile it with ECG dogmas.
