I want to add that the nasty tone of several of the posts in this whole conversation has been enough to get me to unsubscribe from the Rabbit list.  Perhaps my sense of personal responsibility is lacking. I guess I'll pop back to my rabbit hole of a classroom.

So, what you want is to, essentially, remove personal responsibility.  I use
the phrase "Personal Responsibility" here to mean "Planning Ahead" and
"Budgeting."  Not having enough money IS a Very Good (TM) reason for not
buying something.  Not planning ahead well enough is what gets people in
trouble financially (in this case one is unable to purchase from the DC.)
Life itself is a game and these 2 points that you say are "bad reasons" to
be unable to get something work in real life, too.

As far as I can see, the system works very well and I don't think it should
be changed because a few people didn't think ahead.

There is no personal attack meant in this, just my observation and opinion.
