Probably true to be completely sure. I bet the need for "repeated violations" is why I've been able to make it work by delaying after. But I agree.

I have an idea for an efficient fix. But it's tricky to not impact writing speed. Once it get the idea worked out I'll post for comment. I have some other commitments today, so honestly it'll likely be next week at this point.
