Abandoning games instead of resigning...

It happened again just few minutes ago. The guy lost a piece and stopped playing. In a bullet or 3 minutes games is perhaps not a big deal, but in a 10 minutes-blitz...
I reported him.

Thats why i play on another site.  I get a pop up when my opponent moves.  So i can go do others things.

I will stop playing here at November. I have the impression that online chess is taking too much time.

Yes, this is a very sad and silly piece of behaviour.

I posted about it soon after I joined here

This man was 1 move away from being mated, and he had about 5 minutes left, ...so he just didn't move

You reported your opponent, does that do any good ?

Does this end up as a loss for them or?

Yes, unless I had abandoned the game whilst waiting, or he suddenly reappeared when I wasnt looking lol

Not sure, but I always report, it is quick and perhaps the guy will get a warning.
