    1. One might be a fast sell-out race, where you do not want to have people get more than their “fair share” of the available registrations. Another might be a way to try to enforce people signing up just themselves so they sign the waiver.

      1. Both of your examples are better solved in other ways. Instead, you’re essentially recommending we make the user interface annoying to users while still leaving them with ways of getting around it.

        If you can’t come up with a better reason for this feature, I’d delete it. Adding features for no benefit just saddles an RD with more mental stress trying to figure out which features should be used.
