My account is restriced, so I have to wait 5 minutes between games. I just don't get it.I always played fairly, never refused a challenge, I never abord games, I never wait too long to play (not more than a normal thinking time), I never laughed on someone nor insulted anyone.All I can see that I did ''wrong'' is to refuse a guy that was forcing me to resign. I like to play games till the end (please don't tell me it is wrong, a game SHOULD end at the end. If you want to win, prove you can.) And moreover, this game finished by a draw, so, I had no reason to resign.It is pretty frustrating to play fairly, to respect the rule, and be restricted anyways.
You disconnect in over 40% of your games.
That's surely not fun for your opponents. If you play more games (without disconnecting, etc.), the restriction will automatically go away.

You don't have to resign just because somebody says to. You also don't have to except challenges if you don't want to. Those things won't be counted against you.
I never disconnected... If I did, it was a computer problem, and for sure I reconnected to finish the game...
So disconnecting and reconnecting really does count as unfair play, interesting.
@FrancisRicher it doesn't matter if its intentional or accidental, it still counts.
