There should be a rating loss if you abort. Most of the time I challenge someone of significantly higher rating they refuse to move so the computer aborts the game. Its pretty obvious and cowardly tactics.
IF A PLAYER ABORTS HIS GAMETHE PLAYER DOES SO AS A COPOUT. 1 AGREE THAT IF A PLAYER ABORTS HIS GAME IT SHOULD BE RULED AS A LOSS.
sometimes i've had to abort a game due to urgent reasons other than chess unless a game is played no win or loss should be awarded if it becomes excessive i believe the policy in place is adquate
Please don't worry, folks. If the server aborts a game, the abortion is charged to the player who reneged. If a member racks up too many, the member will be punished according to the Fair Play Policy.
An aborted game should not normally count as a loss, nor should it entail a loss of rating points, because a player may have a legitimate reason for aborting in a particular circumstance. However, as I said, too many abortions will result in sanctions.
