Re: [ga] For those interested in delete games
Brett, I think (e) is just a bit unrealistic in 2002. And trying to implement
it risks making the system over-complicated. Given that what you are proposing
are measures to protect potential registrants, it seems unfair that the only one
who risks getting hurt is the current registrant.
