Because in every other forum game the aim isn't to be the last man standing, you fell, you lost wait your turn to go again.
Right... like the old space battle thread? People died and came back all the time... even as everybody else was trying to RP something. Nobody tried to kick them out of the thread over that. And in any case, you'll notice I haven't 'come back.' My penalty for 'dying' is that I am no longer allowed to win, not that I am barred from the game.
