No changes to the current system.

(a): There are some innocent CC players who would be inconvenienced by this addition
(b): It would not necessarily stop the abusers. In the case of Klobber, he could just make the games private and do the exact same thing
Option 2: CC admin decides who is to be punished for abusing the system.
Issue(s): It may put too much power in the hands of the admin, because it is difficult to create a clear set of rules that define what abuse of the invite system is. If a player is found guilty of abuse, the player will be immediately stripped of the privileges that allow him to invite players to the opposing team (even for private games)! This could be either a temporary or permanent ban, but that isn't really the issue with this option; the real problem would be that it is difficult to truly define abuse of the system, and that CC admin might have a little to much power. In my opinion, both Emmdizzle and Klobber would qualify as having abused the system. In the future, players who do what they did should first receive a temporary ban from inviting opponents; If they abuse it just one more time, they are permanently banned from inviting opponents.
Option 3: CC does absolutely nothing. Emmdizzle and Klobber are cleared, as are any future "abusers" of the invite system. Each time, there is public outcry, but in the end, people realize that CC doesn't give a flying f*ck about the general public.
Issue(s): More than obvious, and I'm not going to take the time to spell them out for you.
How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
less abuse of the invite system. I realize this sugg isnt perfect at all. there are glaring fallacies in it. But it's better than what currently goes on, and will help stop devaluation of the ranking system.
EDIT: as has been previously stated, no rank filter still, just not being allowed to invite the opposing team in public games.

I suppose there is only one thing left to ponder: Can the invite system still be abused via private team games?
If so, I would like to see Andy's second point come to fruition. If it is possible to abuse the private team games, then the only possible solution is intervention by team CC. And I would like to see the punishment be rather harsh.
All in all, it looks pretty good to me. These additions would stop users like Emm and Klobber dead in their tracks, and if they wish to resort to private games, it's up to team CC to make the decision. There's really no way around that.
Cleaned up and edited to reflect all the points in the thread so far.
