[GE users] Penalise disproportion of requests und actual usage

we have some dual processor machines with 4gb memory each. In the last 
time some users started abusing the batch system. They request twice as 
much memory as they actually need. This leads to the situation that those 
hosts only run one job simultanously.

Does GE penalize such a behaviour? In one way it does of course: The job 
throughput is cut to half on these machines. But I want GE to penalise 
future jobs of these users. Which queue/host parameters could help here?

Thanks in advance
