Normally I would agree with this, but since Matt is speaking in terms of
admining his *own* mud, I'd say that he gets to define exactly what kind
of game he wants.  If someone else tries to play a different game than the
one offered, good for them, but they certainly cannot complain when it
doesn't work out.

And, the original point was, "Make it clear what kind of game you're offering,
so as to avoid misunderstanding later on" - so in this case, someone like
you (Marian) would probably want to log off as soon as you read the
'we love PK, deal with it' disclaimer at the start. :)
