That one seems a bit harsh to me. I'm not a commish. I'm a second year fantasy baseball player. But that's an almost immediate reply needed. I would guess most people have lives to deal with and you have no idea what is going on (unless you know them personally).
Last year I had a holiday (vacation) booked for early on in the season (was over the Easter holidays). I had done everything I could to set a lineup for the 10 days I was going to be unavailable. As it happens Zimmerman (I think it was him) was placed on the DL while I was away - I didn't find out until I logged on to a PC in Spain 6 days later. I was on holiday, I don't check my emails every day (or even at all sometimes) when I'm on holiday.
3 weeks is a different scenario though. Any rules, if they are known at the beginning of the season, are fair enough I think.
Should the time be different in different types of league? A roto league (wich mine was) and a few missed starts by a batter can be caught up over the remainder of the season with some good roster management.
