These types of tactics (bankrupting - or at the very least, ongoing, systemic, harassment) have been admitted to in hushed tones for so long it's developed into a tornado.

I'll put it like I would to my children:
"Prove your responsible enough and I'll consider it"
And don't forget past [bad] behavior needs to be punished as a deterrent to future [bad] behavior.
Which, I guess, necessitates at least a short (predefined) period without it, right?
