Please do so. We can always use more players. (If you find it's not
your thing, you could always drop out... but please give it a try,
it's a lot of fun.)

Thank you.

No Turing test is actually administered. You just need to be able to
pass one. Actually playing the game and figuring out what's going on
is a good enough Turing test for my purposes.

(The theory is that otherwise, a person could write a program that
sends emails to add a thousand players that vote YES on that person's
proposals. Such an action would be invalid, since the program couldn't
pass a Turing test. But being able to prove that there aren't actually
1000 human beings who all just happened to join at once could be
difficult, though.)
