This. Haha, I don't really understand what's so bad about that rule. You don't want the same person dropping again, so you put him at the bottom of the list. It's their fault for dropping out in the first place. It also doesn't mean they don't want them in their contest, it just means that they aren't a higher priority over later registrants because they dropped out last year. I don't see the problem there.
So what, you have someone who signs up not knowing that maybe in 2 weeks someone dies in their family or they get really sick, maybe even hospitalized. Yes, so they deserve to be on the bottom list next year for dropping. And you can't say.. huh well you can give these people the slide. NO, it must be for everyone. That's plan out stupid, and takes the fun out of it. And anyone who drops should have a right to drop for their own reasons and not be punished (especially considering not everyone will tell you why they drop, because somethings can be too personal) ...... >.>
