this game has been painfully slow because MisterMentat has timed out for so many times.
i think it won't hurt if we would allow in future games to kick a player in this case if he has not posted here to ask for extended time because of special circumstances (illness, journey, family, work, moving household, whatever).
and maybe not at first or second timeout, but after that.
esp because it's a challenge format. each really interested player can always come back to the waiting line.
what do you think?
