The only people who get really punishing are the people in the grade below.
I've no idea what the punishment should be and as it isn't against the rules it makes no difference but I do know that you can't use 1 point.
I'd agree its unfair on the grades below if someone was unscrupulous enough to do it for this reason mate. The vast majority of shooters I've met are honest good sportsmen and women, there is only one I know of who regularly does this which is a great shame.
