I did it myself, it's a lot of fun.
I did this yesterday, completely by accident. Sadly, I'm sure the ones who are actually trying to be griefers know this all too well and will just wait you out.

I probably managed to be a griefer myself at least once - didn't really understand what was happening. I guess I assumed (yes, I know ) that the code worked properly and wouldn't start two at once. So if I line-jumped anyone, I'm tossing out a blanket apology - it wasn't intentional.

I guess we're lucky - I really hadn't noticed much of this stuff until the last couple of days. Last night I was trying to run FRoI and someone had set up party balls at the race start and at several of the corners. I found that pretty annoying. Normally the party balls don't bother me, but the one at the race start actually caused me to not start - it acted just like I had been line-jumped and failed my race.
