The easiest possible solution to fire griefing...

Alright, so here me out on this...WE REMOVE THE OPTION TO LIGHT GRIEFABLE OBJECTS!

Seriously, why the hell is there an option to light the following on fire? The main reason griefing like this is such a huge problem is the fact that griefers were given these options from the start. No player in their right mind would want a Light option on these things!

-Science Machine

-Alchemy Engine

-Berry Bush

-Sapling

-Grass

-Crock Pot

-Chest

-Literally anything a sane player would never want a right-click Light Option on

Some may argue that this would be useless. That they'd light something like a piece of grass and cause smouldering. That's the thing. Smouldering can be put out beforehand. The griefers will be kicked by the time the smouldering things are repeatedly put out, causing only minor health loss, with no rollbacks.

Actually, I light these occasionally when I freeze in the middle of a savannah or anywhere without anything better to burn. 

The general idea sounds good and reasonable and I even think that it would decrease the number of griefings (somewhat). I would like to see it tested if it really works. But my problem with this method is that trolls will actually find a way to evade it, which would make players more disappointed and unprepared in this "fireproof" world.

... and what about insane players?... I am, for example, quite often insane in this game...

(don't take this part seriously ;))

After all, the best solution to griefing in my opinion is a well moderated server ;) 

Btw, did you know that digging up a burning bush/grass/sapling/etc extinguishes it?

When I freeze, I just light what I PICKED from them, so twigs, and cut grass.

i think that fire should be replaced with endless smouldering so that griefers get trolled when they try to set something on fire and it smoulders so they wait 50 minutes but it never gets set on fire and they eventually realise that they were just trolled, now that is simply epic

etc

Grass and Saplings are valid burn targets. It's not something you want to do often but it should be an option. But even if we said, "player planted plants are immune, only natural stuff can burn", it's not simplifying the issue because A: Now we gotta rebalance the crap out of fire, and B: The reason fire is used is because it's the easiest method. If you take away their torches, griefers will make hammers and shovels and cause the same damage as before, if not more.

There is nothing simple about what you're proposing.
