An External Force may become a Player by posting a message to a Public
Forum containing a request to become a player and a uniquely
identifying name that e wishes to be known by. It may do this if and
only if it fulfills the following requirements:
* It is capable of passing the Turing Test
* It is either not already a Game Object, or a Lost Soul
* It has a working e-mail address

so.... If I read this aright, once you forfeit you cannot return to play?
Shouldn't there be some way of returning to the nomic after leaving it?

I understand why you want to keep non-players as Objects, but not allowing
them to return is a bit harsh

They'd be allowed to rejoin... if they ceased to be a player, they'd become a Lost Soul; in order to join, you have to be either a Lost Soul or not a Game Object at all.
