RIPPE, that's why I suggested a option for the host to set. If having people come and go doesn't bother you, then don't use it when you host a game. I find it very annoying when people hop into a game, then cry about being attacked, when the empire they chose was on my hit list for the last 10 turns. It's also very frustrating to have people come in, drop out, come in as a different empire, drop out, come back, on and on.
The thing is, with the newer, better AIs, it's not harder to hop into a game in the end stages, and have a good starting position, if you pick the right AI. They advance their culture, grow their populations, and expand their empires. Will they do it exactly the way you or I would? Nope, but they aren't the push-overs they used to be either.
