Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

Changed: 1c1
A home station which has been surrounded by several suspect packages is said to be in spong. If the packages are successfully detonated, the station is likely to become blocked. In practice it is not usually necessary to use actual explosive devices for this purpose; a bag of smelly socks or a past-its-best sample of fish will often do equally well.

The latter represents an innovative modern use for the cod piece, if one is in play.
