>From a monitory form-letter from the MIT Alumni Association:

"... we will have to _void out_ your application."

A simple _void_ is no longer sufficient?

71,000 _very_ raw hits. Cf.

"Take your dog out about 45 minutes after it eats to _void out_ its meal."

"There's been a big _void out_ there."
