internet somehow (lost ISP, changed email and didn't think to tell others,
or, God forbid, actually died) that the game could continue with another
player filling in. It had nothing to do with cheating, and it's as much
for the reliable person's benefit -- why would you want to end up with a
game stuck because someone ELSE had an unfortunate accident or was
unreliable. That's a lot of effort to waste.
The world is not perfect and a little insurance isn't a bad thing. OTOH,
everyone has their preferences. I've lost a few friends I've known only
over the internet and it's not always the case that their family care or
know to contact email correspondents.
