Sites banned from the "out-of-BA" page? (in General)

I tried to post a link to another game on the "out of BA" page, and got this:

Is Kingdom of Loathing banned from that page for some reason? If so, why?

"Minigames are preferred."

What this means is, "anything with a learning curve longer than 30 seconds is inappropriate to link here."

What? No KoL? Blasphemy!

They're supposed to be games that you get tired of by the time your BA has refreshed. They're not supposed to be engaging enough to make you waste BA, or *gasp* start playing instead of CB ;)

use off topic for Kingdom of Loathing then :P

Besides, kingdom of loathing, while a very funny romp into the ridiculous, isn't quite as fun as this place. For the simple fact that his site is slower then crap. And at some point, there is nothing more to do then fight other people, which isn't nearly as fun as it is here.

OK, that makes sense. Thanks.
