Abort Live Games
Recently, I have been receiving alerts that I will be suspended or banned for aborting games ... when the games have NOT EVEN STARTED! Sometimes I have waited for a couple of minutes for my opponent to move and they haven't, so I abort the game. We're here to play chess right? Not sit in some waiting room twiddling our thumbs! Since joining in 2009 I have learned that sometimes an opponent is not always present. Sure they sent out a search but either they're hitting the john, paying the pizza guy, surfing on another tab, surfing cable, or who knows ... either way they're not moving! Granted there may be a player who is seriously contemplating their masterful GM opening on a standard game but I have no way of telling that. Sure, I've typed in a Hello? but there isn't always a response. For years I have been counting to 30 seconds which seems like an ample amount of time to make a first move. You move. great, I move and it's game on! You don't move: sayonara! Chess.com I love ya but on this should change. What do you think?
