I believe in following the policies of the BoD and the Revenuers,
letter and spirit, but, just out of curiosity, I wonder if the
following would constitute "steering completely clear":

  The next item up for bid is this embroidered favor, generously
  donated by Master Terafan, the brewer.  I understand that this
  favor has a lot of sentimental value for Master Terafan, the
  brewer, and anyone who makes the highest bid and returns this
  favor to that excellent brewer can expect the kind of gratitude
  you might expect Master Terafan, the brewer, would extend.
