OMG I cant believe things have got to this ... being banned for lagging or using the timer, how pathetic is that. maybe the new rules should be:-

Break these rules and you will get banned for a month

No Lagging
No using timer
No sitting away from table
No going for pee during tourney
No using phone while playing because
the game needs your undivided attention

and any other things that you might do while playing

A temporary ban for a player that consistently lets the timer run down EVERY hand that he doesnâ??t want to play, and isnâ??t due to lag but more due to the fact that he canâ??t be bothered to press the check or fold button is deserved IMO. Itâ??s just disrespectful to other players.

No one has been banned for lagging.
No one has been banned for sitting away
No one has been banned for going for a pee, thank god

As stated above, the ban that has previously been enforced, and probably needs to again, is for deliberately not being bothered to check/fold 95% of the time that he doesnâ??t have a hand.

I agree with you watchagot, it's pathetic.
There is absolutely no proof that this isn't lag or even a strategy using the games tools. Just like some use their verbal diarrhea to antagonize, players might just be using the timer similarly.
All these type of actions do is create less and less of a player-base. Hell, finding a table higher than one of the 25/50 with more than 3 players is a struggle.
I say let the players play...those that are left anyhow. The owner doesn't give a shit, why should anyone else.

There is an option to "sit out" if you need to take a break. 8 other people shouldn't have to wait for you to finish urinating.

Until Ryan sorts all the glitches, the main one being lag how can anyone say what is or isnt lag? I have found I may not lag but others are and some worse than others. Sounds like someone has had it in for a player and complained about it, and we should have half the site at same stage banned for this reason lag or not. This is so wrong.

We cant control lag but what is a timer for if not to be used ..... it would be like having a toilet in your house and being told not to use it lol

There's a huge difference between people who occasionally time out due to lag or whatever, and people like phizz and mildew who almost always use full time for each decision. I don't care if the cause is malice, being inconsiderate, a slow computer, or whatever. It is very disruptive to the game and should not be tolerated.
