In the spirit of goodwill to all men, should we implement a timeout freeze for Christmas day?
There is no Christmas holiday in Japan. I will be working as usual all of next week. If, in the course of my busy week, after rushing home to make a move in time, I happen to see a skull, I will stomp on it with glee.
If this were to be a feature of this site (all "religious" holidays are exempt from timeout and timebank), then people could claim Easter, Diwali, all of Ramadan, The Emperor's Birthday, Greek and Russian Orthodox Christmas (whenever that is; I think it's 10 days after Catholic/Protestant Christmas), Golden Week, Lent, etc., etc., as "Official Grace Periods".
No. Rules are rules, and people should take things like summer and winter holidays, and Crimbo, into consideration when they set up/accept games.
EDIT: As the man said, "War is war, loser"...
