Clarence Harding eye-gouging incident.
Although the club were also fined a fairly paltry £2,000, the points deduction - which means that Maidstone now face certain relegation from London 2 South East - is at least a statement of intent that gouging will not be tolerated.
Some might say that punishing the club for the actions of one unidentified player is somehwat draconian.
I think not. Maidstone had their chance to identify the guilty party and chose not to. End of story.
