Question about surplus per account.Follow

Hey everyone, I've been reading on other forums about surplus and someone brought the following comment to my attention.

In regards to the possibility of surplus being shared between characters on the account, "I can't even log off and level another character in the meantime because penalties are shared on the same account." -Taken from a surplus related thread on Eorzeapedia.

Anyone know if this is true?

I was planning on playing with my brother on the same account while he would play on another character whenever time was available respectively. I would play for maybe 2-3hours a day, while he would play about the same, times varying whether it's the weekend or if one of us is busy with other things. If this is the case then I don't know of it'll be worthwhile since we would be cutting down each other's playtime all the time. 

Note: I don't consider myself a hardcore gamer, nor do I consider myself a casual gamer. I'm just a gamer that has random times of playtime depending on what's going on with my life. I can balance my responsibilities and entertainment on my own and don't really appreciate that someone is trying to do that for me, so I'm not sure if I should let this game pass.

I can not give you a definitive answer but assuming you can just change your weapon in game on the same character and it goes away i would have to say there is no way. But then again who knows at this point with SE. In Beta it was not the case since i rolled 3 characters and the 2nd and 3rd one never recieved Surplus.
