strange draw offers

    this is not a complaint. Its merely a request that others with similar experiences may shed some light on this strange occurence. I sometimes get draw offers repeatedly during a game. Sometimes it is early in the game, and sometimes the draw offers continue comiung during the game. since I'm focusing pretty hard on the game I usually don't see the draw offer when it comes in; I usually become aware of it when I see that I have 'declined' the draw. Just now I had this experience, repeated draw offers. Since I thought I had decent chances in the game (I won it :)) I ignored the draw offers when I saw them, but I was surprised by how many I got. I wrote in the chat line "do you want to leave the game? I don't understand", and I got no response except for...another draw offer. I realize my opponent may not have understoof english...that is a possibility. But I think that if this isn't a glitch on the server...there's something about offering draws that I don't understand yet. 

    Sometimes I have to leave game before its finished, because I have an appointment or an important phone call or something. In that case I always tell the oppoent in the chat that I have to go, I apologize, and I then resign. 

    In the case I just experienced the opponent kept playing. S/he neither abandoned the game, nor resigned. So I was puzzled by all the draw offers. 

    It doesn't happen often, and its not irritating, just puzzling.  any thoughts? Radio

    I once played a guy who captured a pawn and I had 23 points worth of pieces. He offered a draw. I declined. He immediately resigned.

    I mean really?

    haha. I wonder if some of the people who offer these strange draws might shed some light on this behaviour!

    Why do you do one your about to checkmate someone in one move then they offer a draw?

    this definitely looks like a misclick - he intended to resign but clicked draw instead.
