So we should just give up the well-intentioned penalties for trading on the clock and allow it completely.
I agree that there are cases where trading on the clock is fine. But I'd rather not see someone taking their full clock all the time because they're taking and making trade offers. Allowing trading on the clock with a penalty could be a compromise in that it allows trading on the clock when necessary, but discourages the practice.

In any case, whether there is a penalty or not, the main deterrent against trading on the clock should be consideration for your fellow GMs. If someone wants to be a rules lawyer there's only so much we can do to prevent that.
