this seems crazy as dropped match penalties do not apply to bots and many folks aren't going to resume ; the result is these bots with this setting just sit around... and then we just avoid them - even tho they may may have cleaned up their games....

I believe the reason for this is that there's some instability in the code on those particular bots.  He wanted to leave them logged in so that people could resume, but didn't want to start new matches when the bot instance was unstable.

Actually he put them up because I had a player asking me where one of the higher number bots were so he could resume!
