    The problem with that is, some people ACTUALLY don't mean to disconnect. Sometimes my wifi has died randomly, and I have accidentally abandoned a few games. I wrote them a message apologizing. But if everyone blocked people who have abandoned a game, we'd never find anyone. Because at one point, almost everyone has abandoned at least 1 game.

    I'm not saying block them if they've abandoned one game, but there should be a percentage that we can set. Either way, I wouldn't mind blocking people who have abandoned 1 game. If someone has crappy wi-fi that is prone to disconnecting, then I'd rather not play with them. It's just a waste of time if they leave before its over.

    Either way, Chess.com has been handling this very well. They receive penalties, and you get points. Whether it's because "It wastes my time" is irrelevant. If you don't have time, don't play.

    If your wi-fi dies during games all the time I think people should be given the option to avoid playing you.  Who is at fault (or even if anyone's at fault) isn't really relevant, the result is the same: a poor experience for your opponents.

    I posted somewhere else that folks with "stable wifi" and basic decency should have the option of playing a game format where a move is restricted to 45s in a 3-min game. Option needed!

    I'm averaging about 2 abandoned games per day. This is super annoying. Please implement a way to avoid playing these people.

    I've played over 360 10 minute Blitz games and only recall two or three disconnects. Maybe I was just lucky.

    You were likely playing people with a rating similar to yours. People don't get a rating that high if they continuously disconnect.
