People keep forgetting that this game is intended to be played in groups, even though I don't like it either (solo player by heart). Bringing up the whole "oh poor me needs 2 weeks holidays" time after time is not helping. First of all, you dont go on holiday every month, so we're talking about let's say 3 weeks out of 52. Your boss will want to know your holiday well ahead of time as well, so how about you plan for it as well? If you know you will be on holiday in june, either make friends before that or ask a friend to log on every so often.
The funny thing about all these comments as well is that all of the people complaining are people that actually managed to get claims and they forget that most of the people on lawless islands are there out of necessity.
Anyways, the devs could implement something that once per year you can activate a 2 or 3 week grace period. If that's not enough to cover your holidays, you have nothing to complain about...being able to go on holidays multiple times a year
