Refuse is a strong word, so apologies if I've offended.
I already know how to write it, the main question was how dangerous is
it and I think we answered that. Misuse seems to be the issue you seem
to be worried about. In the wrong hands it could prove to be a Foot Gun
with a larger than normal kill zone.
Dangerous enough that you actively want me to not write it? Or just
saying you're not sure it can be done?
