Default Enhancement: "Only Joy" ??

I was reading through some of the sample afflictions shown in GURPS Horror (4E) and came across the enhancement "Only Joy, -50%" for the Gaudivore affliction listed on p12.

What is this? I've dowsed around the web and on these forums but I haven't been able to find anything. How do you think this fits into the affliction's mechanics?

I would assume, like Obligate Metuvore, that you can only feed off of someone who has joy.

Given that it's -50%, I think that's already taken care of...

The trait being referenced is made up of two linked parts - the Leech and the Affliction.
  • The Leech lets you feed on someone, but only someone with the good feels. It steals FP.
  • The Affliction leaves them with Killjoy, and if they critically fail or fail by 5, Chronic Depression 6-.
Because of the Link, these two are applied at the same time. So you feed off someone happy, heal yourself, and leave them tired and miserable.
