I like the post industrial revolution status quo but I would be ok with some regulations. I try my best to not use my alts for an "unfair" advantage. Only on one night did I use one to afk farm at two different places. I've never used it to increase spawns. I'm currently using it to stop mobs in the nether from spawning so I don't have to worry about them when building.

The problem with an AFK limit of 30 minutes is that there are farm designs where that simply isn't enough to get it running. My iron phoenix, for example, takes an hour and a half to get up to maximum production. If I log out or leave and unload the chunks, it's broken and will take another hour and a half to get to max production. This is why when I use it, I start it up once and leave my alt there for a few days so at least I can enjoy the game while its running.

If we are looking at it from a server cost perspective, the more alts afking the better, as it allows us to minimize up time in the long term if everyone is on afking at once.
