First, I ask to forgive me for bad English. Secondly, the tone of my treatment may seem harsh to someone. This is not due to disrespect, but from the fact that the topic of the message is painful for me.
I encounter players who leave the game, when they lose, more and more often. These players do not play pass, do not resign, they just leave the opponent to sit and wait for the end of playing time. As a result, the opponent wins by timeout, not by points or resignation. Such a victory looks only as a lucky coincidence, but not as a result of the player’s efforts. I think it’s humiliating.
I admit that there can be insurmountable circumstances that force the player to leave the game, but in that case it is necessary to resign and apologize to the opponent in the chat, if possible. Leaving the game without resigning, without explanation, looks like a tricky attempt to catch an opponent, hoping that the opponent will not wait for the end time either, and win by timeout in a game that has already been lost.
I admit that people leaving the game may not know that they violate Go’s etiquette in this way. But I do not think that they do not understand that they force the opponent to wait and humiliate him. I’m inclined to assume that only selfishness and stupidity do not allow such players to admit defeat with honor.
I have too little free time to play Go and do not want to spend it on those who are not able to show elementary respect. I do not think that anyone should spend the free time of their lives on people of this kind. Therefore, in the near future I will form a list of escapers, which I met, and publish it on the forum so that other players can put the escapers on the blacklist and thus avoid unpleasant impressions and save their time.
