I live in a village where there are often episodes of multiple short interruptions of internet connection.  It seems to take half a minute for the router to start working again, so if the mains interruption lasts more than a couple of seconds, the punitively short recovery time Chess.com allows nowadays in 5-minute games usually imposes “auto-resignation”.   It annoys me that they don’t log the fact in game information, but instead use the false label “game abandoned”.   I have NEVER abandoned a game on Chess.com.

The changes Chess.com made to its software on 17.xii.2020 rendered pretty well everything worthwhile on the site (namely Live Chess, my past games, other people’s games, and Messages) inaccessible to my computer. I’m rather surprised to discover three months later that I can still edit this.
