I get that we need to speed up the process. And i like the idea you have of PMing CP3forMVP your top 3 picks. But I don't think its fair to say "this is how it is going to work" then change the rule to speed it up for other people. If you joined at the beginning then you kind of already "agreed" to the rules that a pick would be auto drafted if that person didn't pick in certain number of hours. So everyone knew the rule going into the draft.
To me personally, I could care less either way. I just think it's the "fair" thing to do. Because when you start changing rules and things to appease some people you are going to **** off some others. And inevitably some of those people will back out of the league. IMO it's best to stick to what was discussed when everyone agreed to be a GM of a team that way it's understood that the rules were that way when you signed up.
