I just read this whole thread and Lucky had the best post. : )
I read where quitters should be sanctioned, penalized, level points removed, etc., etc.
No one mentioned the flip side of the coin. This thread has all the people complaining about quitters. Imagine the people starting a thread that disconnected at no fault of their own and are now the ones saying how they are wrongfully being sanctioned, penalized, their level points were removed, etc., etc.
Its a fact, everyone loses their Internet connection at one time or another to no fault of their own, and/or a player who quits due to a bad shot. WGT should just make a house rule that every player would have to abide by whether a player disconnected from a multi-player game to no fault of their own or not.
It should be a fair rule for both the people who have a legitimate reason why they disconnected, or for the ding-dongs who disconnect because they hit their shot in the weeds. This is the only way to make it work for in-game disconnections in general. What's good for one, should be good for all.
The only question is, what's a fair rule?
