Ladder games won by anullment should not let you go up

See http://online-go.com/game/748678

No moves were played, but calantir moved up to #2 on the ladder. Just removing Vladas from the ladder is good enough.

Yeah, there is something a little bit cynical with exploiting absent players to jump lots of ladder spots.

Honestly, with the ranking rebalancing, The ladders could also be reset.

The big problem with games won by idleness is that either you’re unfairly rewarded for “picking on” the idle high members, or you’re unfairly penalized by challenging an idle player and taking days to actually get your “challenge marker” again.

To balance this out, making it impossible to challenge players idle for more than 4 days, and removing them after being idle for 2 weeks seems like a fair way to keep the rest of the thing balanced.
