Proposal 220/0:Now You See Me, Now You Don't (Fenrir)

(PLEASE VOTE NO ON THIS ONE! It might stop the game by putting more
than 2/3 of all players on leave, which will stop the clock, which in
turn will prevent garbage collection from working!)

*Thanks* for mentioning that when there was something that could have been done about. (Note sarcasim) That proposal was listed for 6 days and only Glotmorf made any comments on it. I might have been able to revise the otherwise good proposal to your liking. Of course, maybe it slipped through your attention, which is another supporting reason for bandwidth limitation, since only a few proposals get any discussion at all, even when there is disagreement on it.

Besides, A) if you have that many players that are inactive to the point that this proposal will shut the game down, the Nomic is probably on the verge of death anyway, B) if it is just a temporary anomoly, players can come off leave and start the clock again and C) if anyone is paying attention then that threat can be intentfied ahead of time and dealt with as appropriate.
