Kinda dark, but interesting. And since Agora has been going on for so long and doesn't seem like it will stop anytime soon, even thought it would be sad, it's not a complete impossibility.

Even darker, it may already have happened without us knowing.

 This randomly occurred to me recently.

 Rule 869/44 indicates that a dead organism is not a person, because it is
 not capable of thinking. So if an organism who was a player died, e would
 cease to be a person and COULD NOT be a player any longer. But this is not
 the same as "deregistering", because that is the act of flipping a
 Citizenship switch to Unregistered, and non-persons do not have
 Citizenship switches. Are there rules that would malfunction if this

 Non-persons also cannot have Patent Titles, Ribbons etc, so we have a
 potential loss of historical information in Herald, Tailor and Registrar
 reports. Not to mention that dying could cause someone to cease to be a
 party to a contract that would otherwise prohibit em from doing so.

 R2350 says:

 Creating a proposal adds it to the Proposal Pool. Once a proposal is
 created, nether its text nor any of the aforementioned attributes can be
 changed. The author (syn. proposer) of a proposal is the _person_ who
 submitted it.

 (emphasis mine) If the organism that was once the author of a proposal
 dies, then that proposal's author is now undefined, which is a change in
 one of the aforementioned attributes. So the rule is self-contradictory!
 Same for co-authors.

 Regulations Promulgated by an organism cease to be Regulations when the
 organism dies.

 And what if an Auctioneer or vote collector dies?

 Perhaps Rule 869 should be amended to state that any people continue to be
 people in perpetuity even if they stop meeting the definition of a person.
