Have you considered that whoever (if there is in fact someone) that does thaumcraft in spawn city might not be that active on these forums? Thus this person won't know about this and continue as if nothing has happened. Is there any way to enforce these rules via game mechanics?
Also without knowing exactly how thaumcraft works, I've still got to understand that the power nodes take energy from their highest energy neighbour when they need to? And this can continue in several steps. Is it not possible, that by planting all those trees in spawn, you have actually created a "super" node in there? Then all energy drain is directed there, hence instead of reducing it you have actually focused it into spawn city? Even for energy drains that originates far outside of spawn city.
