You're absolutely correct. I missed it again. Doing all this on an iPad is tricky. But I will master it eventually. Sorry.

Clarification of my argument:

Actually, there seems to be three pertinent parts to the Rule. In INCREASING precedence:

* Any player who is On Leave may, by posting a message on a business forum, declare emself to be Off Leave. [the player MAY announce he is Off Leave]

* A player who is On Leave ... may not take any game actions. [if the player is On Leave, the player may NOT announce he is Off Leave]

* Players may place themselves On Leave or Off Leave while The Clock is Off. [the player MAY announce he is Off Leave IF the Clock is Off] 

So, it appears to me that a player may place himself ON Leave at any time, but may only announce that he is OFF Leave while the Clock is OFF.

Am I missing something?

Ah. A gracious gratuity.
