Forget "touch/move" and use "move/move"

In Response To: An argument for touch move? (long) (mamabear)
Most of the problems and questions raised would be solved if, instead of touch/move, we changed the rule to move/move. Once you actually move the checker to a legal spot, it stays there.
Now, by definition, you have not "moved" it until you take your hand off of it, so if you put it on the 2 point and keep your hand on it, and if you follow the rule that you are only allowed to move the checkers with one hand, there is no doubt which checker was moved and to where and from where if your hand is still on it. So in that case, you could see what the move would look like and still move it back. But lift your hand, and the move is done.
Maybe this is the compromise that people will accept? Let's start here and see how it goes? All in favor????
