We aid at the beginning we were doing an extremely active daily league, and all of them said they would be. And 2-4 weeks to check trades is uncalled for.
I'm not a commish, but I am pretty active in my league. Abandoned teams really drive me crazy, especially when end up losing to one of them.
We have one team in our league that has had Kelvim Escobar, Curt Schilling, and Chris Carpenter as starting pitchers from the beginning of the season. Basically he took his roster, and like a Ronco Showtime Rotisserie, he "set it and forget it". He never made any roster move, lineup changes, or emails, messages, smack talk, nothing.
Then one day, he accepted a trade when he gave A-Rod for Beltre, Vlad, and Cueto. I immediately thought the deal was fishy and vociferously opposed it. But the commish let it go through.
Since that trade, he has not made any further changes to his lineup.
